About the speaker
Dorna Behdadi's dissertation project focuses on the question of moral agency in
other entities than human beings. What non-human beings can be morally
responsible for their actions? Can other animals be moral agents? What
about artificial entities like robots or intelligent programs? If any
non-human entities are in fact moral agents, is their moral agency the
same as ours? Or do they earn it by meeting a modified or wholly
different set of criteria? What ethical, legal and social consequences
In addition to the above, Behdadi takes interest in animal ethics,
philosophy of mind and related normative questions, philosophical
questions regarding comparative cognition (like choice of method and
interpretation of data), theories about human uniqueness, as well as
questions regarding quality of life.
