appre- ciate what is at hand, and because of this they force other human beings to endure violence and nonsense. Unwise prophecies and nasty inspirations complete the tragic scenario. 2. Anthropomorphism Euripides employs a number of different textual moves that have the effect of suspending or undercutting the gods’ anthropomorphism. I will single out a few of these moves here. One of the more frequent ones consists in conflating the divine image with a cosmic principle that depersonalizes the gods and limits the richness of their portraits and timai (honors

know what it is like for her to behave as Bunty behaves, which is not the same as what it is like for Bunty to behave as Bunty Diski thus concludes that it is not just hard but strictly impossible to reach the mental state of an animal; there is no way out of anthropomorphism. She writes: When I catch her looking at me, I am sharply reminded of her innerness, though I know I can’t really grasp it. What she is thinking I will never apprehend … ‘What, what, what?’ I say to her pleading. But, like Alice’ s Cheshire cat, she just looks at me from inside her head, and

2. Varieties of Anthropomorphism Varieties of Anthropomorphism Varieties of Anthropomorphism The anthropomorphism of biblical depictions of God is inescapable— even the second commandment is inscribed by the finger of God.1 However, while anthropomorphism in a general sense is unavoidable, the use of specific types of anthropomorphic depiction, including physical embodiment, is certainly avoidable. Problems relating to anthropomorphism have always been of great concern to scholars of philosophy and theology.2 Throughout the his- tory of scholarship

C H A P T E R I ANTI-ANTHROPOMORPHISMS In their attempt to spiritualize the conception of God, the trans- lators of the Greek Old Testament avoided, to some extent, those representations which invested the deity with human form. It is in this strictly technical sense that the term anti-anthropomorphism is used in this chapter. In Ex. 15: 3, where God is called a man, (Jehovah is a man of war), and in Num. 23: 19, where the negative statement is made that, (God is not a man), the L X X reads quite differently. In place of a concrete designation " a man

William C. Wimsatt Anthropomorphism and Science Fiction Abstract: In the light of developments in the United States between 1979 and 2014, should we treat robots as people, in cognition, consciousness, and gender? “My attitude towards him is an attitude towards a soul—I am not of the opinion that he has a soul.”Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, II, iv Norman Malcolm (class lectures, 1963, which I attended as an undergraduate) interpreted this as saying that opinions and concepts (like that of personhood), with further analysis, reach past evidential

The Uses of Anthropomorphism ROBERT WRIGHT 0 rans de Waal’s carefully documented and richly de- scriptive accounts of nonhuman primate social behav- ior have contributed vastly to our understanding of both nonhuman primates and human ones. One thing that has made his accounts so intellectually stimulating is his willingness to use provocatively anthropomorphic language in analyzing the behavior and mentality of chimpanzees and other nonhuman primates. Not surprisingly, he has drawn some criticism for this anthropomorphism. Almost invari- ably, I think, the
