From your reading of Hasker, and using the categories he uses, what view of the mind/body problem do you think is exhibited by Picard? By Maddox? Support your answer.

Maddox lists 3 criteria for a being to be sentient: intelligence, self-awareness, and consciousness. Are these adequate? Can you think of other properties or characteristics a being needs to have in order to be considered a “person”? What might they be?

Do you think that artificial intelligence to the level as it is presented in the story will someday be possible? Why or why not?

Do you think Maddox is right when he claims that Picard is being “irrational and emotional” in his view of Data?

Do you agree with the JAG officer’s final ruling? Why or why not?

If A.I. does become possible, will we have obligations to treat machines “ethically”?
