Reviews
"Robot Rights is a compelling read. It dives deeply into philosophy from the very start, but it's accessible and well structured, and useful and informative for anyone interested in the social impact of emerging technologies."
--Times Higher Education

"[A] brilliantly, disorienting book."
--Daily Telegraph

"Robot Rights is a crucial innovation in the way we think about our proper place in the world and relationships with entities of our own making."
--LSE Review of Books


"Gunkel elegantly deals with how and whether we can understand human rights so as to apply them to nonhuman entities, particularly automata. [ . . . ] [A] keen investigation into whether automata could have rights much like humans."
--Human Rights Watch
