Love and Sex with Robots (Paperback)

David Levy


From Pygmalion falling for his chiselled Galatea, to Dr Frankenstein marvelling at his monster, to the man-meets-machine fiction of Philip K Dick and Michael Crichton, humans have been enthralled by the possibilities of emotional relationships with their technological creations. Synthesizing cutting-edge research in robotics with the cultural history and psychology of artificial intelligence, "Love and Sex with Robots" explores this fascination, and its far-reaching implications. Using examples drawn from around the world, David Levy argues that, once we have conditioned ourselves to feel affection for animate creations, the next logical step is physical intimacy.
