The Handbook features easy-to-follow chapters that appear here for the first time in print and-written by 61 key scholars and fresh voices-represent the wide range of viewpoints in neuroethics. The volume spotlights new technologies and historical articulations of key problems, issues, and concepts, and includes cross-referencing between chapters to highlight the complex interactions of concepts and ideas within neuroethics.

Review quote

"The Routledge Handbook of Neuroethics is an impressive and important companion to the emerging discipline of neuroethics. The scope of the contributions to this handbook is dazzling, covering not merely well worked questions in neuroethics, but also giving us glimpses of its bright future. A judicious mix of big names and newer voices make this a volume that anyone with an interest in neuroethics will want to read." --Neil Levy, Macquarie University and University of Oxford "In this valuable and interdisciplinary collection, Johnson and Rommelfanger have compiled the most interesting and important writings in the emerging field of neuroethics. It explores both "the ethics of neuroscience," that is, ethical issues raised by neuroscience, and "the neuroscience of ethics," that is, the implications of neuroscience for metaethics and moral psychology. This Handbook is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand neuroethics and its potential implications for law and policy." --Bonnie Steinbock, The University of Albany, SUNYshow more
