Summary
"While neuroscience has provided insights into the structure and function of nervous systems, hard questions remain about the nature of consciousness, mind, and self. Perhaps the most difficult questions involve the meaning of neuroscientific information, and how to pursue and utilize neuroscientific knowledge in ways that are consistent with some construal of social 'good'. Written for researchers and graduate students in neuroscience and bioethics, Scientific and Philosophical Perspectives in Neuroethics explores important developments in neuroscience and neurotechnology, and addresses the philosophical, ethical, and social issues and problems that such advancements generate. It examines three core questions. First, what is the scope and direction of neuroscientific inquiry? Second, how has progress to date affected scientific and philosophical ideas, and finally, what ethical issues and problems does this progress and knowledge incur, both now and in the future? - Brings together noted scholars from diverse disciplines making this a title relevant for all in the field of Neuroscience, Bioethics, Medical ethics and Philosophy - Explores the full range of philosophical,ethical and social issues raised by neuroscientific research -Advanced philosophy and neuroscience, give the reader an understanding of the current state of play in the sciences and philosophical debates"--Provided by publisher
