Symposium: Does Neuroethics Have Normative Implications?

Conference Scales_D03.jpgJoin us on Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16 for the symposium “Does Neuroethics Have Normative Implications?” in the Alumni Lounge in Hermann Hall on Illinois Tech’s Mies (Main) Campus.

Neuroscience seeks to understand the biological systems that guide human behavior and cognition. Normative ethics, on the other hand, seeks to understand the system of abstract moral principles dictating how people ought to behave. Can neuroscience provide insight into normative ethics, and help us better understand which human actions and judgments are right, and which are wrong?

Invited speakers include James Giordano (Georgetown University), Eddy Nahmias (Georgia State University) and Kurt Gray (University of North Carolina).
