Neuroethics by Neil Levy
Book DescriptionNeuroscience has dramatically increased understanding of how mental states and processes are realized by the brain, thus opening doors for treating the multitude of ways in which minds become dysfunctional. This book explores questions such as when is it permissible to alter a person's memories, influence personality traits or read minds? What can neuroscience tell us about free will, self-control, self-deception and the foundations of morality? The view of neuroethics offered here argues that many of our new powers to read ,alter and control minds are not entirely unparalleled with older ones. They have, however, expanded to include almost all our social, political and ethical decisions. Written primarily for graduate students, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the more philosophical and ethical aspects of the neurosciences.

Books By Author Neil Levy
Hard Luck, Paperback (November 2014)
The concept of luck plays an important role in debates concerning free will and moral responsibility. It may seem that if our actions are not determined, they are too luck-based to be free. Neil Levy presents an original account of luck and argues that it undermines our freedom and moral responsibility no matter whether determinism is true or not.
Consciousness and Moral Responsibility, Hardback (March 2014)
Neil Levy presents a new theory of freedom and responsibility. He defends a particular account of consciousness-the global workspace view-and argues that consciousness plays an especially important role in action. There are good reasons to think that the naive assumption, that consciousness is needed for moral responsibility, is in fact true.
Addiction and Self-Control, Hardback (January 2014)» View all books by Neil Levy
This book brings cutting edge neuroscience and psychology into dialogue with philosophical reflection to illuminate the loss of control experienced by addicts, and thereby cast light on ordinary agency and the way in which it sometimes goes wrong.
