Summary: In The Philosophy of Stanley Kubrick, some of our most respected philosophers investigate Kubrick's art to illuminate his view of reality. In films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Eyes Wide Shut, and Dr. Strangelove, Kubrick explores the world honestly, mirroring the vast complexity of the world of philosophy. Dividing the book into sections on war, love, history, and other rich topics, the contributors find ample proof of the philosophical genius of Stanley Kubrick.
