DescriptionIn the growing literature on the moral status of robots, authors such as Danaher, Coeckelbergh, and Sparrow have developed novel conceptions of moral status. In contrast to the standard emphasis on capacities, their accounts focus on human responses to robots. In this talk, I analyse and critique their accounts. First, I argue that that all three authors endorse a response-dependence (RD) account of moral status. Second, I show that these accounts suffer from three major problems. The conclusion is that an RD account are unsuitable to explain moral status and face more problems than the capacity-based approach.
