I was waaaay surprised to see they framed the question of robot consciousness around Julian Jaynes's The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. Earlier, a friend had joked that the book seemed to fit Willem Defoe's Green Goblin character, but it makes perfect sense when considering an android breaking fee of the voices/commands heard from its masters....
If no one's read the book, it's really fascinating. Huge explanatory power, and a very well-written and entertaining history of early civilization even if you don't buy 100% into its premise.
