  1. 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.

 

  1. 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?

 

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

 

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

 

  1. Do you agree with the JAG officers’ final ruling? Why or why not?

 

  1. If A.I. does become possible, will we have obligations to treat machines
