Friedrich Nietzsche and the Matrix

- In the film, The Matrix, the human race is forced into a “dream state” by a powerful group that controls their reality. “The Matrix” is a false reality where people live an ordinary life.

This concept is where Friedrich Nietzsche’s essay, “On Truth and Lies in a Moral Sense” (1873) begins its argument. Nietzsche begins his argument by explaining that we have a need to form groups or “herds”. To keep these groups together “a uniformly valid and binding designation is given to things” (452)....   [tags: Friedrich Nietzsche]

The World Of Production, By Karl Marx And Friedrich Engels

- ... To understand EXO 's place in the labor relations, one can turn to commodity fetishism as outlined by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in “The Fetishism of Commodities and the Secret Thereof.” Marx and Engels argue that when something becomes a commodity, the glorification of the commodity masks the material relations behind it. The commodity is built up as an object of desire, and its targeted audience then focuses on it and the desire it creates. This allows for the exploitation of the workers who produced the object, because the focus is on the desire, not the labor relations that created it....   [tags: Karl Marx, Marxism, Communism, Friedrich Engels]
