Product description

Review

"A formidable new book....Provides a galaxy of challenging thought....Gunkel does a fine job of lucid and concise exposition." -- Peter Hankins "Machines Like Us"

"This controversial and thought-provoking book is a must-read for anyone interested in the philosophy of technology and in discussions on artificial intelligence and ethics of information and communication technology. The unprecedented value of the book is that Gunkel not only analyzes important aspects of the immediate problem but also that he places his discussion in the context of philosophical discussions on such related issues as rights discourse. Maybe some day the moral status of machines will be obvious for all of us, but for the present Gunkel's book provides an important voice for discussion on the moral status of machines."-- "International Philosophical Quarterly "

"Gunkel's deconstruction is a tour de force that largely succeeds in getting us to 'think otherwise'. His argument that machines have always been the excluded other is convincing.... Gunkel engages the thinking of both 'analytic' and 'continental' philosophers, which I believe is a virtue.... The book is an original contribution to the field and likely to have wide reverberations...careful and remarkably comprehensive." -- "Ethics and Information Technology"

"There is something right about Gunkel's recognition that one can hardly consider the questions of machine morality without being led to more fundamental methodological and meta-ethical issues....He nevertheless succeeded in connecting the ethics of robots and AI to a much broader ethical discussion than has been represented in the literature on machine ethics to date."-- "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews"

A formidable new book.... Provides a galaxy of challenging thought.... Gunkel does a fine job of lucid and concise exposition.--Peter Hankins ""Machines Like Us" "

A formidable new book.... Provides a galaxy of challenging thought.... Gunkel does a fine job of lucid and concise exposition.

--Peter Hankins "Machines Like Us "
