Discuss Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics and how they impact at least ONE specific event in this novel:
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Do these laws make sense to you? Why or why not?
Do you agree with the way Elijah handled the resolution of this story? Why or why not?
However, to answer these questions, you will need to have finished this book and given some serious thought to what I am really asking you!
It's interesting to note that Asimov's Three Laws have become accepted as operating principles for many authors. Do you think they might apply to R2D2, 3CPO, and BB8? Something to think about!
Don't forget to respond to the three main questions above by Friday night at midnight, and then respond to a classmate's post by Sunday night at midnight!
