Philosophical Disquisitions: 94 – Robotic Friendship and Hatred


Can we transfer past the Aristotelian account of friendship when occupied with {our relationships} with robots? Can we hate robots? On this episode, I discuss to Helen Ryland about these subjects. Helen is a UK-based thinker. She accomplished her PhD in Philosophy in 2020 on the College of Birmingham. She now works as an Affiliate Lecturer for The Open College. Her work examines human-robot relationships, online game ethics, and the personhood and ethical standing of marginal circumstances of human rights (e.g., topics with dementia, nonhuman animals, and robots).
