Next Week’s Neuroethics Symposium

3Next Wednesday (August 26th) our first symposium on papers published in the journal Neuroethics will go live. Our discussion will focus on a great paper by Farah Focquaert and Maartje Schermer titled “Moral Enhancement: Do means matter morally?”

We hope to generate a lively discussion around the authors’ central claim that moral enhancements in which the recipient is passive are more ethically concerning than those in which the recipient must exert some effort to be enhanced.

Anyone interested in reading the target paper in advance of the symposium can find it here. We are very grateful to Neil Levy for supporting this symposium, and to Springer helping to make the article available in open-access.
