Neo's Kantian choice: The matrix reloaded and the limits of the posthuman
Kant's Categorical Imperative procedure is applied to the conundrum that animates the second installment of The Matrix trilogy: how can Neo act autonomously in a deterministic world? The essay argues that Neo's success depends on his ability to act on principle, an achievement that recovers a liberal humanist ideal from the claims of posthumanism.
