An outsiders take on self - in GitS

Post by Freitag »

This guy has an interesting take on the philosophy of identity from GitS (you can tell how far outside of the GitS fandom he is the first time he says Motoko)

He follows the idea of "I think therefore I am" back to the original debate on that idea.

Max Derrat does a decent job with some of the GitS recurring themes through his treatment of video games. I also liked his series on C.G. Jung.
