Résumé

Can an "autonomous" robot be ethical' Ethics is a discipline that calls upon certain capacities of an agent for a purpose. We will show that the goal of ethics is not attainable by a robot, even autonomous, thereby implying that it is not a moral agent and that it cannot be a moral agent because it lacks the necessary capabilities. The field of ethics is therefore foreign to the robot, and we will show why it would not be useful for the definition of ethics to be modified in order to integrate robots, if they come under two traditional conceptions of ethics - those of Aristotle and of Kant - and the minimal definition of ethics.
