Ash was rescued from the wreck of the platform by a British Blade Runner called Hythe, who had reinstated Ash to the rank of Blade Runner and had her cybernetic back-braced repaired and recharged. Together the two Blade Runners tracked the escaped Replicants to the Off-World way-station of Ramanuja, a nexus point of a hundred trade routes. Ash and Hyde were then attacked by Pellam, leader of the rebel group who had stayed behind to kill anyone who followed them. Following a furious gun battle that saw the Replicant die, Hythe revealed to Ash that she was not working for the London Blade Runner division, but rather for a private individual who was revealed to be Isobel Selwyn. Ash had last seen Isobel mortally wounded on Earth when she had pleaded with Ash to take her daughter, Cleo, away from her father, Alexander Selwyn, and escape off world…

Early in the 21st Century, the TYRELL CORPORATION advanced robot evolution to the NEXUS phase – creating artificial beings virtually identical to humans – known as REPLICANTS. Superior in strength and agility, the Replicants functioned primarily as Off-world slave labor or in hazardous, high-collateral combat situations. After replicants were declared illegal on Earth, special police operatives – called BLADE RUNNERS – had orders to kill or ‘RETIRE’ any trespassers upon detection. Detective AAHNA ASHINA of the Los Angeles Police Department was one of the first to qualify for the assignment. Her colleagues called her ASH. She was the best of them. Los Angeles, 2019

Having helped Cleo – the daughter of business tycoon Alexander Selwyn – and her surrogate Replicant mother, Isobel, escape Off-world, Blade Runner Aahna ‘Ash’ Ashina has returned to Los Angeles to hunt Selwyn down. Following a lead, Ash visited the ruins of the Tyrell Corporation. With the help of a deranged scientist called Fost, whom she found living there, she accessed the Tyrell mainframe and uncovered a list of people connected to a secret project called Isobel. Believing the list would lead her to Selwyn, Ash set off in her borrowed Spinner to follow the trail. However, following a tip-off from Selwyn, a squadron of LAPD Spinners were lying in wait for Ash, and she was arrested. Whilst transporting her to prison, the police were ambushed, and Ash was freed and taken to a deserted farmhouse by members of the Replicant Resistance.

Following a Replicant mutiny on an Off-world mining colony, Ash and Cleo became separated. Cleo fled with the renegade Replicants, while Ash, believed dead, was taken into custody by Hythe, a corporate Blade Runner, and forcibly recruited to track down her surrogate daughter. Following the renegades’ trail, Hythe and Ash travelled to the way station of Ramanuja where they encountered the Replicant Isobel, whom Ash believed had died back on Earth when she and Cleo first escaped. Together the three women searched for Cleo among the passengers preparing to embark to the Off-world colony of Arcadia. Ash spotted Cleo and her Replicant friend Padric, but before she could act, Hythe double-crossed her, triggering a furious gun battle that left both Padric and Hythe dead. Cleo and Isobel were at long last reunited and set off to Arcadia, while Ash returned back to Earth…

Early in the 21 Century, the Tyrell Corporation advanced robot evolution into the Nexus phase – a being virtually identical to a human – known as a Replicant. The early Nexus models were intended to reassure the public – and corporate interests – that Replicants were viable replacements to perform jobs considered too hazardous or mundane for humans. In Los Angeles, a child was diagnosed with a rare spinal affliction. Her mother departed for an Off-World colony, hoping to find employment to support her daughter back home. She was never heard of again. The grown of Off-world colonies fuelled the rapid development and construction of new Nexus models. By the time Nexus 5 Replicants were ready, they were superior in strength and agility, and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers who created them. The girl was raised by her grandmother. Over time, she learned to survive on the crowded streets of Los Angeles, among those too poor and infirm to leave Earth. After a bloody mutiny by a Nexus 6 combat team in an Off-world colony, Replicants were declared illegal on Earth – under penalty of death. Special police squads – Blade Runner units – had orders to shoot and kill, upon detection, any trespassing Replicant. The girl, now grown, calls herself ASH. She is the most capable Blade Runner in the city.

Blade Runner 2049 and Philosophy

Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 sequel to the 1982 movie Blade Runner, about a world in which some human-looking replicants have become dangerous, so that other human-looking replicants, as well as humans, have the job of hunting down the dangerous models and “retiring” (destroying) them. Both films have been widely hailed as among the greatest science-fiction movies of all time, and Ridley Scott, director of the original Blade Runner, has announced that there will be a third Blade Runner movie. Blade Runner 2049 and Philosophy is a collection of entertaining articles on both Blade Runner movies (and on the spin-off short films and Blade Runner novels) by twenty philosophers representing diverse backgrounds and philosophical perspectives. Among the issues addressed in the book: What does Blade Runner 2049 tell us about the interactions of state power and corporate power? Can machines ever become truly conscious, or will they always lack some essential human qualities? The most popular theory of personhood says that a person is defined by their memories, so what happens when memories can be manufactured and inserted at will? We already interact with non-human decision-makers via the Internet. When embodied AI becomes reality, how can we know what is human and what is simulation? Does it matter? Do AI-endowed human-looking replicants have civil and political rights, or can they be destroyed whenever “real” humans decide they are inconvenient? The blade runner Deckard (Harrison Ford) appears in both movies, and is generally assumed to be human, but some claim he may be a replicant. What’s the evidence on both sides? Is Niander Wallace (the-mad-scientist-cum-evil-corporate-CEO in Blade Runner 2049) himself a replicant? What motivates him? What are the impacts of decision-making AI entities on the world of business? Both Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 have been praised for their hauntingly beautiful depictions of a bleak future, but the two futures are very different (and the 2019 future imagined in the original Blade Runner is considerably different from the actual world of 2019). How have our expectations and visions of the future changed between the two movies? The “dream maker” character Ana Stelline in Blade Runner 2049 has a small but pivotal role. What are the implications of a person whose dedicated mission and task is to invent and install false memories? What are the social and psychological implications of human-AI sexual relations?

'It's Schopenhauer and the will. It's Plato, it's Hume, Baudrillard and the concept of the Nietzschean superman!' Keanu Reeves on The Matrix The Philosopher at the End of the Universe allows anyone to understand basic philosophical concepts from the comfort of their armchair, through the plots and characters of spectacular blockbusting science-fiction movies. Learn about: The Nature of Reality from The Matrix; Good and Evil from Star Wars; Morality from Aliens; Personal Identity from Total Recall; The Mind-Body Dilemma from Terminator; Free Will from Minority Report; Death and the Meaning of Life from Blade Runner; and much more. As someone once said, things must be said and knowledge known, and the cast list assembled to tell us does not disappoint: Tom Cruise, Plato, Harrison Ford, Immanuel Kant, Sigourney Weaver, Friedrich Nietzsche, Keanu Reeves and Rene Descartes. From characters in the biggest films (with lots of explosions and bad language) to Ludwig Wittgenstein (no explosions and too much language in general), hear all the arguments. I think, therefore... I'll be back!

Since its release in 1982, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, has remained a cult classic through its depiction of a futuristic Los Angeles; its complex, enigmatic plot; and its underlying questions about the nature of human identity. The Blade Runner Experience: The Legacy of a Science Fiction Classic examines the film in a broad context, examining its relationship to the original novel, the PC game, the series of sequels, and the many films influenced by its style and themes. It investigates Blade Runner online fandom and asks how the film's future city compares to the present-day Los Angeles, and it revisits the film to pose surprising new questions about its characters and their world.
