Dan Weijers: Life inside the Matrix

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 31 March 2024

While there’s no denying our lives have become better in many ways thanks to the internet and smartphones - genuine human interaction has dropped drastically, leaving society at large in an epidemic of loneliness. 

Dystopian sci-fi classic ‘The Matrix’ came out 25 years ago, yet Dan Weijers argues its themes are more relevant now than ever before.  

Dan Weijers is a senior lecturer in philosophy at the University of Waikato.
