This volume originates from the discussions carried out during the workshop “RoboEthics in film” that was held in Munich on the 28th and 29th of February 2014 in the framework of the RoboLaw project. The participants wanted to examine how robots and androids are portrayed in films and what kind of ethical problems are addressed through these stories. Are cyborgs really to be regarded as a locus of resistance of capitalist consumer culture as Donna Haraway as claimed in the 90ies? Under which circumstances can androids become desirable goals? Which type of androids must be considered morally qualified subjects? Do androids and cyborgs force us to redefine what it means to be human? These and other questions are dealt with in this volume.
