« Neuroethics in Science (Murphy) | Main | What "neurolaw" isn't (Murphy) »


Any particular topics other than those listed in the Journal description?

I construe neuroethics very broadly - obviously applied ethics issues to do with technologies that intervene into the mind (use of anti-depressants and cognitive enhancers, memory alterations, and so on) - but also work on how the sciences of the mind - broadly construed, again - illuminate traditional issues in moral psychology, normative ethics, and meta-ethics. One way to give you a feel of how broad is to list work that I take to be neuroethics: Stich on moral cognition, Knobe on intuitions of causation in harm cases, Joyce on the evolution of morality, Cosmide and Tooby on Wason selection tasks, Baumeister on self-control... the only requirement is that work in the journal brings out how these matters to ethics/social policy/politics/the law.
