4.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent companion piece to the movies, Feb. 13 2004
Since the movies were not only action-oriented but highly philosophical (sort of Zen-like), so, too, is this very good book. But I believe one should also get some great science fiction books and delve into their philosophical depths, below the high-tech, the action, and, yes, even the cyberpunk tales: "Foundation" trilogy, "Childhood's End", "Stranger in a Strange Land", "Neuromancer", "Darkeye: Cyber Hunter", and other such bodies of work. All present an undertone of philosophical views, usually through the protagonists' eyes, of the workings of the world and society.
