While this is promising, research on the topic has also become fragmented, and even speculative in some cases, with work discussing specific aspects of AMA without the emergence of dominant views, or clear debates or research questions. My main objective in this talk will be to take stock of the work on AMA accomplished in the last decades and examine three main questions from a philosophical perspective.
