What is Virtual Reality?

September 9th, 2010 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch

Dr. Willem deVries
What is virtual reality? Is it possible that virtual reality is the only reality that exists? Can we know what is real? Can we know anything? 17th century philosopher RenĂ© Descartes couldn’t figure it all out. Maybe you can!

Dr. Willem deVries of the University of New Hampshire Philosophy Department in cooperation with the UNH Speakers Bureau discusses these questions using clips from films such as the Matrix, eXistenZ, and Total Recall. This program is suitable for high school ages and up.
