THE BLUE PILL OR THE RED PILL? PART ONE: INTRODUCTION

THE BLUE PILL OR THE RED PILL? PART ONE: INTRODUCTION

This is the first of a series devoted to the philosophical resonances of the film The Matrix [1999]. We take it that many of the philosophical issues brought up in The Matrix boil down to the consequences of presupposing the binary ‘real-apparent’. We outline how this is so in this introduction in preparation for forthcoming podcasts on the real-apparanet binary’s entanglement with existentialism, metaphysics and politics. If you can’t see the film, at least watch this brilliant four minute clip in which the hero Neo is given the choice between the red pill which will open him up to the reality of his situation and the blue pill which will keep him in a state of delusion: https://youtu.be/zQ1_IbFFbzA. [Free. 22 minutes.]
