As someone who had never heard of RUR, I was fascinated by the fact that the first story about a robot revolution does not simply show robots going from kind helpers to evil monsters. In fact, it’s the story how robots become more human-like and sentient, as they want to overtake their creators and form their own rules. It’s interesting how a humanized robot does not at all mean a good robot. While the audience of the play may not enjoy the idea of the end of the human race, I wonder if they empathize with the desire to overthrow a society that does not respect them. However, I am curious, if the robots develop their own thoughts and opinions and there are even robots made out of human flesh, what makes them truly any different than humans?
