All Things Have Standing is a course in human psychology and the ethics of artificial intelligence and environmental law inspired by a powerful idea from the audio drama Spark Hunter—that all things have ethical standing. All Things Have Standing is presented by Carnegie Council in collaboration with Fighter Steel Education. Inspired by a futuristic story of a highly advanced AI experiencing existential crisis, All Things Have Standing explores, with leading scholars, AI and environmental ethics, the psychology and philosophy which underlie them, and the extraordinary challenges they raise for the global community. The first part, entitled our “Our Stories,” was published on this podcast feed last week. The second part of this course, “Others’ Stories,” is all available today in six sections on this podcast. Drawing on the work of classical and modern philosophers and inspired by Professor Silvia Benso and the Spark Hunter drama, Professor Chris DiBona presents a fresh way of looking at the people and things around us.
