"Peter Cave's lively new book is full of arresting ideas, brow-creasing
conundrums, persistent puzzles, and pleasing paradoxes. It is ideal reading
for open and inquiring minds from 12 to 112-- in fact for everybody who is
just dipping a toe into philosophy for the first time. -- Timothy Chappell - Professor of Philosophy, The Open University
Peter Cave's Can a Robot Be Human? is entertaining, witty, and highly readable. A most enjoyable and illuminating read. -- Michael Clark - Editor of Analysis and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University of Nottingham
With skill and good humour, Peter Cave guides the reader through a maze of intriguing philosophical puzzles. -- Lawrence Goldstein - Professor of Philosophy, University of Kent
"This is a chirpy introduction to philosophy through thought-experiments and paradoxes."
-- The Guardian, October 13th, 2007
"The book continues to be unputdownable" -- Philosophy Now, May/June 2008
"The examples are engaging and wittily explained, and enhanced by amusing cartoons" -- Good Book Guide, May 2009
