McCulloch W. S. (1956) Toward some circuitry of ethical robots or an observational science of the genesis of social evaluation in the mind-like behavior of artifacts. Acta Biotheoretica 11: 147–156. Fulltext at
Modern knowledge of servo systems and computing machines makes it possible to specify a circuit that can and will induce the rules and winning moves in a game like chess when they are given only ostensibly, that is, by playing against opponents who quit when illegal or losing moves are made. Such circuits enjoy a value social in the sense that it is shared by the players.
