I explained why the answer is “no” last week at the Cornell philosophy dept. workshop. But I admit that the title is a bait-and-switch. The presentation is an extension (of sorts) of the Workshop talk I gave almost exactly one year earlier.
My favorite moment of the presentation was when I was interrupted by a collective, horrified gasp after saying it wouldn’t be morally wrong of Luke Skywalker to scrap C-3PO for parts. Any sympathetic ears I had up to that point were promptly retracted. A draft can be found here. Feedback welcome!
