Philosophy of Westworld: Consciousness and Personhood P1

Episode 3 · July 1st, 2018 · 17 mins 58 secs

About this Episode

In this episode, we cover the question of consciousness in Westworld. Do host have a different level of consciousness than humans? Do the host have to prove their consciousness or do humans have to prove the host don't? What are the moral implications of the host having consciousness? How does this relate back to the broader question of personhood? All of this discussed!
