Neuroscience and ‘Creeping Inculpation’: Tracing and the Responsibility to Maintain Capacity
Thursday, November 8, 2018
Biotechnology Auditorium Room 1111 (425 Henry Mall), Genetics-Biotechnology Center Building
Neuroscience, rather than leading to a “creeping exculpation”, will instead expand responsibility by providing people with more information with which to predict and avoid states of diminished capacity. This talk considers what neuroscience would need to be able to tell us to have this effect, using the example of psychopathy.
