The Meaning of Life in the Metaverse (with David Chalmers)

March 23, 2022

We could soon be living more of our lives in immersive virtual worlds, but what will that look like and how will it affect us? New York University professor of philosophy and neural science David Chalmers joins Azeem Azhar to discuss what the metaverse might offer us, the moral quandaries it could pose, and what our rights there might look like.

They also address:

  • What the consequences of wrongdoing in the metaverse might be.
  • How governance and society could develop in virtual worlds.
  • The philosophical precedents for virtual worlds.
