Story & Themes
- Deus Ex is all about exploring questions related to what it means to be human. Here are some ideas for conversation starters:
- Will augmentations bring more power to the individual? Or will they simply make it easier for those in power to control the population?
- Is it even possible to augment humans ethically, without losing our humanity?
- Some people in the deaf community criticize the practice of cochlear implants (a surgical procedure that helps some deaf people hear), because they may negatively affect deaf culture. Do you see parallels between these critics and the anti-augmentation people in Deus Ex?
- How would you decide which augmentations to get (cosmetic augmentations vs. augmentations to correct a disability)?
