Abstract

[en] This dissertation studies Philip K. Dick's famous novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and the movies that are based on it, namely "Blade Runner" by Ridley Scott, and "Blade Runner 2049" by Denis Villeneuve. In this post-apocalyptic universe, humans create artificial beings (the androids, or replicants). The aim of this dissertation is to analyse how the authors question the definition of humanity and raise ethical issues.
