Experience Machines: The Philosophy of Virtual Worlds

(ed.)
London: Rowman & Littlefield (2017)

Abstract

In his classic work Anarchy, State and Utopia, Robert Nozick asked his readers to imagine being permanently plugged into a 'machine that would give you any experience you desired'. The authors in this volume re-evaluate the merits of Nozick’s argument, and use it to examine subsequent developments in culture and technology.
