Add your own review!

Overview

A fascinating analysis of the psychology behind Westworld. In both the film and the TV show Westworld, people playing out fantasies find their lives in danger when robots built to entertain start to kill, creating an opportunity for us to examine an array of psychological phenomena. This collection explores our fears about rapidly evolving AI, offering fans an in-depth psychological exploration of the Westworld universe, including: When do synthetic people become sentient? What is the appeal of live-action role playing? Why does the Wild West intrigue us? How far will people go in pursuit of violent delights?
