This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book begins by demonstrating the prevalence of the binary hierarchies of high/low culture, philosophy/film and word/image in much of the philosophical writing on The Matrix Trilogy. These had the effect of ensuring that the films could not make a contribution to philosophy. The book shows that the films depart from the singularity that characterises Jean Baudrillard's conception of the hyperreal and the code, offering a series of multiple, different, hyperreal worlds and codes. It then offers a summary of the author's methodology and a brief commentary on its utilisation in the preceding analysis of The Matrix Trilogy. This will be followed by an assessment of the differences between the author's methodology for inter-relating philosophy and film and the other approaches that have been delineated by Stephen Mulhall and Thomas Wartenberg.
