HSEM 2725H: Zombies and their Souls: Philosophy, Bioethics and the Undead

3 CreditsHonors

We want money, love and fame. They want brains. Who is to say that our values are superior? This seminar will use zombie movies as a way of exploring fundamental issues in bioethics, the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of psychology. Are zombies conscious? Do they have free will? Should they have rights? If zombies could be safely controlled, would it be unethical to make them slaves or pets? What about experimenting on them, or using their organs for transplantation? If I were to become a zombie, would I still be me, or would I be something else?
