He was unique. Alone in a world that did not understand him, he tested the super powers of his mind and body. More than a machine, but less than a man, he searched restlessly for the truth. Before his quest was done, he had died and been reborn, had fought his way from a grim dungeon to a royal throne.

Girls Don?t Like Real Jazz is the funniest book ever written about jazz and its place of importance in American culture. But, GDLRJ is neither just funny nor just for American jazz fans. It is for anyone concerned that the United States is losing its cultural identity. The declining jazz business in America should be seen as a canary in a coal mine for our nation's overall decline. Jazz is being squeezed out by a modern culture that is turning its back on its own rich history. Through stories and suggestions on how to save jazz from impending doom, jazz writer and social commentator Walter Kolosky argues that the loss of jazz is a foreign policy issue. To let its American roots die away is tantamount to treason in Kolosky?s opinion. That being said, the author believes that if the ship is destined to go down, we may as well have a few laughs with our salt water. The author is hopeful that maybe we can bail fast enough. GDLRJ is a guide book for jazz fans and other socially conscious individuals to use in a battle to help save jazz. Use it wisely.ISBN 0-9761016-0-2
Social robotics drives a technological revolution of possibly unprecedented disruptive potential, both at the socio-economic and the socio-cultural level. The rapid development of the robotics market calls for a concerted effort across a wide spectrum of academic disciplines to understand the transformative potential of human-robot interaction. This effort cannot succeed without the special expertise in the study of socio-cultural interactions, norms, and values that humanities research provides. This book contains the proceedings of the conference “What Social Robots Can and Should Do,” Robophilosophy 2016 / TRANSOR 2016, held in Aarhus, Denmark, in October 2016. The conference is the second event in the biennial Robophilosophy conference series, this time combined with an event of the Research Network for Transdisciplinary Studies in Social Robotics (TRANSOR). Featuring 13 plenaries and 74 session and workshop talks, the event turned out to be the world’s largest conference in Humanities research in and on social robotics. The book is divided into 3 sections: Part I and Part III contain the abstracts of plenary lectures and contributions to 6 workshops: Artificial Empathy; Co-Designing Children Robot Interaction; Human-Robot Joint Action; Phronesis for Machine Ethics?; Robots in the Wild; and Responsible Robotics. Part II contains short papers for presentations in 7 thematically organized sessions: methodological issues; ethical tasks and implications; emotions in human robot interactions; education, art and innovation; artificial meaning and rationality; social norms and robot sociality; and perceptions of social robots. The book will be of interest to researchers in philosophy, anthropology, sociology, psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, robotics, computer science, and art. Since all contributions are prepared for an interdisciplinary readership, they are highly accessible and will be of interest to policy makers and educators who wish to gauge the challenges and potentials of putting robots in society.
