Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in View of the Reading of Life of Pi I observed how Pi went through a retrogression in his empathy towards animals. This move, from empathy to absence of empathy, or suspension of it, receives an inverted treatment in Do Androids. Rick Deckard holds the position of hunter, though, unlike Pi, his prey is not animals, but androids.
