Adapting philosophy

Jean Baudrillard and *The Matrix Trilogy*

Catherine Constable

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Examines the whole of the trilogy rather than focusing on the first film Offers rigorous textual analyses of the films that address the intricacies of the visual details, rather then just concentrating on the dialogue Addresses one philosophical text in detail, Jean Baudrillard's Simulacra and simulation , which is a key text for the trilogy
  • Importantly, it looks at the ways in which the films take up Baudrillard's work and change it, creating their own philosophical position Uses adaptation theory and feminist philosophy to create a new methodology for inter-relating philosophical and filmic texts that enables the articulation of the film's own philosophical position Differs from other work inter-relating philosophy and film in arguing that it is imagery and the figurative that constitute the key link between the two different types of texts
