Film as Philosophy

Waking Life, released in 2001 by Fox, was Directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed & Confused, Before Sunrise, Tape). This film brought many different philosophical ideas to a whole new generation. This movie validated a lot of what I felt and believed in my youth.

Philosophy is believed by many to be somewhat of an archaic study, save for the many who study it in their own homes and the ivory towers of the world. Philosophy has largely fallen under self-help in the 21st century (The Secret, Eckhart Tolle & Highly effective...) and business success (Good to Great, Art of War, etc).

Where philosophy thrives is in the world of new media. A new philosophy is evolving.
