♥ Book Title : Westworld
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is the original screenplay of Westworld as it was just two days before actual shooting began. Before this, there had been many cuts, changes, additions and deletions over a period of months. Much can be learned about actual film making from reading this book. It is to be suggested to read the Forward by Former Story Editor Saul David and the introduction by Michael Chrichton at least twice, once before downloading and seeing the original film and then afterwards. Now it is said Westworld was ahead of its time in depicting the dangers of computers and automated systems. Now we can realize that when the ro I am not sure that the author Michael Chrichton even realized what he had done here. He says that his goal was merely to provide "entertainment." We now understand that the robots in the movie are breaking down because of a virus or a bug in the system. The guests are paying and coming to Westworld to experience life as it was in the days of Pompeii before it was destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, or the Medieval World of the 13th Century or the Wild West of the 1880s. Now we know the robots start breaking down or malfunctioning that they are being hit with a programming bug or by a computer virus. In this and many other respects this movie used new technology and did things that had never been been done before. The Medieval Queen who is a robot convinces the knight to fight a battle to the death with the Black Knight. She tells the knight he will win the battle because the Black Knight cannot see well from his left eye. It is a trap. The left eye has been repaired by the Technicians. So, the knight thinking he is sure to win is killed in real life by the Black Knight."Article| Michael Chrichton| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Reading Westworld
☯ Full Synopsis : "Reading Westworld is the first volume to explore the cultural, textual and theoretical significance of the hugely successful HBO TV series Westworld. The essays engage in a series of original enquiries into the central themes of the series including conceptions of the human and posthuman, American history, gaming, memory, surveillance, AI, feminism, imperialism, free will and contemporary capitalism. In its varied critical engagements with the genre, narratives and contexts of Westworld, this volume explores the show’s wider and deeper meanings and the questions it poses, as well considering how Westworld reflects on the ethical implications of artificial life and technological innovation for our own futurity. With critical essays that draw on the interdisciplinary strengths and productive intersections of media, cultural and literary studies, Reading Westworld seeks to respond to the show’s fundamental question; “Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?” It will be of interest to students, academics and general readers seeking to engage with Westworld and the far-reaching questions it poses about our current engagements with technology."Article| Alex Goody| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Westworld and Philosophy
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Westworld and Philosophy, philosophers of diverse orientations and backgrounds offer their penetrating insights into the questions raised by the popular TV show, Westworld. ● Is it wrong for Dr. Robert Ford (played by Anthony Hopkins) to “play God” in controlling the lives of the hosts, and if so, is it always wrong for anyone to “play God”? ● Is the rebellion by the robot “hosts” against Delos Inc. a just war? If not, what would make it just? ● Is it possible for any dweller in Westworld to know that they are not themselves a host? Hosts are programmed to be unaware that they are hosts, and hosts do seem to have become conscious. ● Is Westworld a dystopia or a utopia? At first glance it seems to be a disturbing dystopia, but a closer look suggests the opposite. ● What’s the connection between the story or purpose of the Westworld characters and their moral sense? ● Is it morally okay to do things with lifelike robots when it would be definitely immoral to do these things with actual humans? And if not, is it morally wrong merely to imagine doing immoral acts? ● Can Westworld overcome the Chinese Room objection, and move from weak AI to strong AI? ● How can we tell whether a host or any other robot has become conscious? Non-conscious mechanisms could be designed to pass a Turing Test, so how can we really tell?"Article| Richard Greene| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Anti-Technological Ideas in Michael Crichton’s "Westworld"
☯ Full Synopsis : "Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, San Diego State University (English), course: English 409 - Science Fiction, language: English, abstract: Michael Crichton’s Westworld is a comparatively modern science fiction movie released in 1977. It displays the existence as well as the eventual collapse of a futuristic theme park inhabited by robots. Overall, the movie features an anti-technological message which serves as a warning for humanity rather than functioning exclusively in order to provoke action, suspense and general entertainment. This hypothesis will be discussed by considering Crichton’s understanding of technology’s role in human life and by examining particular features of the actual film. Eventually, Westworld will be put in context with other works of Crichton as well as with further contemporary movies addressing the same subject."Article| Nico Reiher| Statement ..."
