University Event


Philosophy and Ethics taster course | St Mary's University

University event offered by University of London

Event Summary:

s your body just a machine (as Descartes suggests)? If so, then (conversely) could a machine or robot ever be considered a person in its own right?

Full Event Details:

Do the ‘Terminator’ machines, for instance, have a right to fight for their existence? Are the machines in the Animatrix justified in enslaving humans, given they themselves had been enslaved by us? This lecture will explore questions of this sort, and examine the way that these issues have been tackled in philosophy as well as in mainstream media (film, tv, literature). In so doing, we may well find that philosophy follows, rather than leads, the philosophical debate about the post-human.

Suitable For:

Individuals (Enquiry not required to be through a school)
