Call For Papers

Ethics in Progress (EiP) provides a crossdisciplinary & crosscultural global forum for the examination and discussion of innovative research in ethics. EiP especially encourages submissions that use a range of empirical and experimental research methods. It addresses moral development, normative framework & its dynamics, and moral activism in context.

This special volume of EiP addresses the issue of mind and machines. Machines have always been a tool or technical instrument for human beings to facilitate and to accelerate processes through mechanical power. The same applies to robots nowadays – the next step in the evolution of machines. They already clean our houses, mow our lawns, hunt terrorists via drones or transport heavy loads. Over the course of the last few years, robot usage in society has expanded enormously and they now carry out a remarkable number of tasks for us. In every industrial sector, it is likely that there are at least a handful of jobs for human workers that will sooner or later be replaced by robots or autonomous solutions.

Above, robot scientists like Kevin Warwick believe that they are able to develop an artificial brain, comparable to our human brain, that is able to generate a robotic mind. If that was right, we are on the eve of a historic revolution that will change everything we know right now. This volume tries to broaden our understanding of a philosophical field that is still at the very beginning in regard to its research and literature.

Examples of possible topics include, but are not limited to the following:

a) Computational models of brain
b) Theory of mind
c) Ethical implications
d) Human/artificial mind interactions
e) Ethical implications. Is Rautio's (2018) imperative "do onto techno sapiens as you would onto homo sapiens“ applicable?
