Experience Machines

Event type: Research profile seminar

'The Experience Machine' is a thought experiment that was proposed in the seventies by American philosopher Robert Nozick. To quickly summarize Nozick's thought-provoking exercise, he hypothesized the existence of a device capable of feeding a human brain with experiences that are indistinguishable from those we develop in our everyday life. ¿The Experience Machine¿ challenges us to envision having access to a device that could indefinitely supplant our everyday lifeworld with a virtual one designed to maximize our pleasure and satisfaction. By presenting us with the possibility of an experience machine, Nozick invited reflections on whether the way we live our lives is solely driven by the pleasure principle or if there is something else that we value other than how we feel ¿from the inside¿. If such a machine existed, he asked, would you plug in for life? Problematizing and supplementing some of the interrogatives raised by 'The Experience Machine', Dr. Gualeni proposes a philosophical reflection on human experiences in the upcoming age of their 'technical reproducibility'. The contents of this talk are part of an edited volume titled 'EXPERIENCE MACHINES: The Philosophy of Virtual Worlds' (Rowman and Littlefield International, 2017) (https://www.rowmaninternational.com/book/experience_machines/3-156-111f1b15-a847-4572-b83b-df76f3c1ef61)
