Description

From Socrates to cyborgs, we explore the nature of consciousness through classical and contemporary works of philosophy. Inspired by Westworld’s speculation over humans’ robotic nature, we will examine attention management, memory degradation, and questions of free will. This immersive experience in the humanities and philosophy seeks to examine what classic works have to respond to the challenges arising around new technology today in order to discover both alternative accounts to the western tradition and to understand overlooked possibilities within it. This course assumes you have watched the entirety of season 1 (on reserve at Askwith Media Library, 2nd floor, Shapiro Library—up to four people at a time can watch onsite, bring UMID). 

Warning: like many of its HBO peers, Westworld regularly features disturbing content of a graphically violent and sexual nature.

Course Requirements:

Students should have watched Season 1 of Westworld before the start of the course. Season 1 is on reserve from 8/22/22-12/19/22 at the Askwith Media Library, 2nd Floor, Shapiro Library. Up to 4 people at a time can watch onsite. Calling 734-764-5360 or emailing askwithmedia@umich.edu ahead is a good idea. Bring UMID.

Intended Audience:

First and second year students in LSA Honors Program                      

Class Format:

Interactive lecture/teamwork, plus discussion sections                                       

PLEASE NOTE:  The number of seats in the Open Seats column reflects the actual number of seats available in a section. The number in the Open Restricted Seats column is not always accurate.
