Ph.D. in Practical Philosophy. BSc in Biology (Zoology).

My dissertation project focused on the possibility of moral agency and responsibility in entities other than (typical adult) human beings. What non-human beings can act morally right/wrong? Can other animals be moral agents? What about artificial entities like robots or intelligent programs? If any non-human entities are, in fact, moral agents, is their moral agency the same as ours? What are the ethical, legal, and social implications?
