On this week's Philosophy Talk, the subject is pantheism: the doctrine that the world is either identical with God or an expression of His nature.

Movies play a large role in modern life. We enjoy watching them; we idolize the actors and actresses who appear in them; we analyze the directors. But how well do movies tackle bigger philosophical questions?  With the help of listeners and special guests, Philosophy Talk hosts John Perry and Ken Taylor turn a philosophical eye to the past year's cinematic offerings, and present their 4th annual Dionysus Awards for the most philosophically-rich films of the past year.
