Reviews

“The book is timely. Brain-computer interface technologies are bound to have a significant impact on 21st-century society…This is a book for philosophers, bioethicists, lawmakers, and politicians as well, as for anyone directly involved in the use of the new technologies.” • Ethics & Medicine

Description

With the development of new direct interfaces between the human brain and computer systems, the time has come for an in-depth ethical examination of the way these neuronal interfaces may support an interaction between the mind and cyberspace.

In so doing, this book does not hesitate to blend disciplines including neurobiology, philosophy, anthropology and politics. It also invites society, as a whole, to seek a path in the use of these interfaces enabling humanity to prosper while avoiding the relevant risks. As such, the volume is the first extensive study in cyberneuroethics, a subject matter which is certain to have a significant impact in the 21st century and beyond.

Calum MacKellar is Director of Research of the Scottish Council on Human Bioethics, Edinburgh, and Visiting Lecturer of Bioethics at St. Mary's University, London, UK. His past books include (as co-editor) The Ethics of the New Eugenics (Berghahn Books, 2014).
