Robot Ethics (MIT Press)
Friday, 09 September 2022

This book sets out to consider questions such as Does a robot have moral agency? Can it be held responsible for its actions? Do humans owe robots anything? Will robots take our jobs? Mark Coeckelbergh considers a variety of robotics technologies and applications—from robotic companions to military drones—and identifies the ethical implications of their use.

Questions of robot ethics, Coeckelbergh argues, are not just about robots but, crucially and importantly, are about humans as well. When we discuss robot ethics from a philosophical angle, Coeckelbergh argues, robots can function as mirrors for reflecting on the human. Robot ethics is more than applied ethics; it is a way of doing philosophy.
