Philosophical and Transdisciplinary Enquiries in Social Robotics

Project: Research

Project Details


PENSOR addresses questions in social robotics that require expertise in various philosophical disciplines, including the new area of intercultural philosophy of technology, as well as anthropology, psychology, and robotics. The transdisciplinary research platform PENSOR was introduced to acknowledge that social robotics marks a new relationship between technology and the Humanities. Social robotics needs the Humanities to inform the development of technological design, but it also offers new insights on the conditions of human interaction.
