Transformers and Philosophy : More than Meets the Mind Paperback / softback

Edited by John R. Shook, Liz Stillwaggon Swan

Description

Transformers began with toys and a cartoon series in 1984 and has since grown to include comic books, movies, and video games -- its science fiction story has reached an audience with a wide range second only to that of Star Wars.

Here, in Transformers and Philosophy, a dream team of philosophers pursues the fascinating questions posed by humankind's encounter with an artificially intelligent mechanical civilization: Is genuine artificial intelligence possible?

Would a robotic civilization come with its own morality and artistic life, and would it find a need for romantic love?

Should we be more careful about developing robots that may eventually develop ideas of their own?

Transformers and Philosophy puts Transformers under a microscope and exposes its philosophical implications in an instantly readable way.
