Year 2: Philosophy module (session 3)

Wednesday 01.11. | film screening at 10.00 | Westworld 1973 | directed by Michael Crichton 

"Boy, have we got a vacation for you!"

In the then-future year of 1983, a high-tech, highly realistic adult amusement park called Delos features three themed "worlds"—Westworld, Medievalworld, and Romanworld. The resort's three "worlds" are populated with lifelike androids that are practically indistinguishable from human beings, each programmed in character for their assigned historical environment. For $1,000 per day, guests may indulge in any adventure with the android population of the park, including sexual encounters and even a fight to the death.  

Please make notes, so that you can give not only a summary of the film's narration but discuss it in detail. Bring the notes with you to our session on Friday 10.11.
