The Role of Phronesis in Robot Ethics

Abstrakt

aThe Aristotelian concept of phronesis captures the kind of situated knowledge, which is needed in order for us to understand and act morally in the specific situations in which we find ourselves. On this background, it is discussed whether an 'as if' version of phronesis, understood as situational awareness, might enable us to design a virtuous robot with 'as if' capabilities of the phronimos. It is argued that eventually we might see this kind of virtuous robot, but its 'as if' qualities would not be sufficient for the virtuous robot to count as an ethical agent, since phronesis is presumably not computationally tractable.
