September 17th, 2010, 11.00 – 17.00
Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge
This interactive workshop will aim to clarify the idea of cognitive enhancement and its significance with reference to three central notions: achievement, coercion, and preference. The questions addressed will include: Is the notion of cognitive enhancement consistent with key intuitions about knowledge as a distinct kind of achievement? Could the availability of cognitive enhancements amount to a coercive offer? What is the moral significance of individual preferences for cognitive enhancement?
