By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep ... They even built humans. Emigrees to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in. Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.… (lisätietoja)

What Does It Mean to be Human?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? asks what constitutes being human. Obviously, it’s more than just being made of flesh and blood, fashioned in an image many believe replicates their creator, and having the ability to think; in Androids, the robots bear such close resemblance to humans that bounty hunters like Rick Deckard must administer specialized psychological tests to determine whether people they hunt are human or robot.

In Philip K. Dick’s novel the key distinguishing trait is empathy. Can people not only understand the feelings of others, but can they also share those feelings. In a world devastated by nuclear war, where people obviously showed no empathy for the suffering of others, empathy has been transformed into a religion of sorts, Mercerism, the shared long climb up the hill of human travail to the inevitable end. Doesn’t get much more nihilistic than that.

Deckard, when we meet him, has a dream. He wishes he could afford to own a real animal, as his more successful neighbor owns a horse. Deckard owns an electric sheep that he tends as if it were living, demonstrating his empathy. Real animals, most of which were exterminated in the war, are the new status symbol, and Deckard believes that owning and caring for one would improve his and wife Iran’s social status and sense of well being.

Then an opportunity presents itself in the form of six new model Nexus-6 androids that have escaped from Mars after killing human emigrants. (Since radioactive dust chokes Earth, the U.N. encourages people to settle Mars, preserving the gene pool, and provides free androids as an inducement.) One of the androids nearly killed the San Francisco Police Department’s chief bounty hunter Dave Holden, landing him in the hospital. Deckard catches the assignment of retiring (killing) the six. To learn more about the new model, he hovers to Seattle to meet with the manufacturer. There, he administers the Voigt-Kampff test to the daughter of the owner, Rachael Rosen. She tests positive as an android, a fact kept from her. Deckard’s coldness about the matter has ramifications later in the novel.

Eventually, Deckard does locate and dispatch the six androids. (In a sub story, John R. Isidore, a radioactively damaged human, known as a “special,” harbors them to satisfy his strong desire for companionship, regardless of how indifferently they treat him.) However, the hunt plunges Deckard into an existential crisis, only partially assuaged when he impulsively purchases a real goat. His issues spring from a growing sense of empathy for these nearly human androids and his weariness at retiring them. Deckard meets another bounty hunter who is extremely ruthless and emotionally cold. He can’t fathom the man, and can’t see himself in the same role, though, of course, he is. Further, he commits the offense of having sex with an android, Rachael, feeling emotion for her, only to learn she has had sex with many bounty hunters to protect Rosen-made androids. Add to that an apparent plot by the androids to discredit Mercerism and it’s easy to empathize with Deckard’s despair. Then, too, it doesn’t help when he learns Rachael has taken an additional measure of revenge on him, for readers to discover themselves, leaving the question as to why? Because he destroyed the other androids, or because he callously revealed her true identity to her? And if the latter, well, what does that say about her, a Nexus-6’s ability to experience human emotion, and future generations of Nexuses to refine empathic traits? In other words, what is human; is human a much more encompassing classification than we are will to admit?

Philip K. Dick famously described himself thusly: “I am a fictionalizing philosopher, not a novelist.” (Dick; Exegesis) This novel lends credence to the claim. ( )

I've only read two other science fiction novels in my life--The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Dawn by Octavia Butler. Sci-Fi and speculative fiction is not my genre, but I was surprised at how quickly I became immersed in this world and concerned for the main character's well-being. I was surprised by the emotional impact of the book. The book managed to be science fiction, a hard boiled mystery, and a philosophical journey rolled into one. I'm impressed. Maybe I've been missing something but not reading more sci-fi. ( )

In 1968, Philip K. Dick wrote Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, a brilliant sf novel that became the source of the motion picture Blade Runner. Though the novel's characters and backgrounds differ in some respects from those of the film, readers who enjoy the latter will discover an added dimension on encountering the original work. Del Rey Books returned this classic novel to print with a movie tie-in edition titled Blade Runner: (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?).
