Moral Orthoses: A New Approach to Human and Machine Ethics

  • Yorick Wilks University of Sheffield

Abstract

I argue that both human and machine actions are more opaque than is generally realized and that the actions of both require explanation that an ethical orthosis might provide as aspects of artificial Companions for both human and machine actors. These explanations might well be closer to ethical accounts based on moral sentiment or emotion in the tradition of the primacy of sentiment over reason in this area of human and machine action.
