Professor Richard Hanley faced the dilemma plaguing so many philosophy professors today how to entice students into the classroom. Based upon his own successful course, Is Data Human presents a thoroughly unique and enjoyable way of introducing students to the basic concepts of philosophy as seen through the lens of Star Trek. From the nature of a person, of minds, and of consciousness, to ethics and morality, to the nature and extent of knowledge and free will, Hanley brings a fresh perspective to the contemporary debates concerning humankind’s place in the world. Dare to boldly go where no philosophy professor has gone before a classroom packed with eager and enthusiastic students.
