In this work, we describe the key points of a project concerning the philosophical analysis of the uncanny valley phenomenon. We consider the uncanny effect as a specific case of recognition failure. In particular, we suggest that the emotion of disgust, broadly construed, may have an important role to play in our understanding of the uncanny, highlighting the existence of a link connecting the uncanny to the multifaceted psychological and social phenomenon of Dehumanization.

Abstract

In this work, we describe the key points of a project concerning the philosophical analysis of the uncanny valley phenomenon. We consider the uncanny effect as a specific case of recognition failure. In particular, we suggest that the emotion of disgust, broadly construed, may have an important role to play in our understanding of the uncanny, highlighting the existence of a link connecting the uncanny to the multifaceted psychological and social phenomenon of Dehumanization.
