Brave New Neuro-world PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Brave New Neuro-world free pdf The 21st century will not only see groundbreaking new discoveries about the brain, but will also witness the development of revolutionary new 'neuro-technologies': Intelligence enhancers, neuro-cosmetics, designer-feelings, memory facilitators and suppressors. Intervention in the brain - whether pharmacological, electronic, or surgical - could become an every-day event. These technologies, together with specific genetic modifications have unparalleled therapeutic potential, but there are also fears of misuse and manipulation. Taken together, the remarkable possibilities - many on the verge of becoming reality - give rise to a new image of man, one that calls into question concepts such as soul, rationality, morality, and responsibility. For all those interested in the future of our species, this book provides a thought-provoking glimpse of things to come.
