  • “Inception”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is the most philosophical, thought-provoking, and disturbing movie since “The Matrix”. It was the ‘existential heist film’ of the year in 2010. The very idea that our dreams and reality are one and the same has caused many sleepless nights and deep, vexing conversations around the world. The natural association of the film with philosophical dream theories suggests that Inception is underpinned by deep philosophical urges. What is the nature of the world? Are there dreams within dreams? In “Inception and Philosophy”, philosophers examine the complicated dream theme from various angles. Are our thoughts are our own? Is shared dreaming possible? Forty-three percent of ‘residents’ of virtual worlds such as Second Life report that they feel as strongly about their virtual community as they feel about the real world. Are they walking away from the real world just as Cobb could have done and possibly did?
