PHIL 80.29 The Ethics of Neuroscience

This course delves deeply into some of the main questions in neuroethics. We will focus on selected issues in the ethics of neuroscience, including cognitive and moral enhancement, disorders of consciousness, and the ethics of neural interventions. Readings will include both philosophical work in neuroethics and relevant seminal papers in neuroscience.

This advanced seminar is designed to be a culminating experience for majors in Philosophy, although properly qualified students in other disciplines may also be admitted.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
