Synopsis:Volume 62 in the Popular Culture and Philosophy® series

You have to go deeper. Inception is more than just a nail-biting heist story, more than just one of the greatest movies of all time.

The latest neuroscience and philosophy of mind tell us that shared dreams and the invasion of dreams may soon become reality. Inception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For takes you through the labyrinth, onto the infinite staircase, exploring the movie’s hidden architecture, picking up its unexpected clues.

How will Inception change your thinking? You can’t imagine.

How will Inception and Philosophy change your life? You simply have no idea.

“The authors of Inception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For will take you downwards and forwards. They’ll plant seeds that grow in your mind. When you come out of it on the other side, you'll find that many things you think you believe never really made sense, and you’ll wonder why you ever thought they did. Pick it up, start reading, wait for the kick.”

—D.E. Wittkower, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Old Dominion University

“Inception is one of the most philosophically compelling movies to come out in the past twenty years or more. Reading Inception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For is like waking from a dream. It could be just that.”

—Richard Greene, co-editor of Dexter and Philosophy

“Not since The Matrix has there been a movie so philosophically rich as Christopher Nolan’s Inception. If I had Dom Cobb’s powers, I would plant just one simple idea—resilient, highly contagious—in the minds of bookstore browsers everywhere: Read Inception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For.”

—Amy Kind, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College

“Nothing can kick-start excited conversations on the gnarly nature of the mind quite like the movie Inception and a bunch of passionate philosophers.”

—Luke Dick, writer, artist, singer, philosophy professor
