Workshop: Revisiting cognitive enhancement

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?

Further details are available here.

There is no attendance fee, however, places are limited and prior registration essential. For RSVP and further queries please e-mail the organiser, Dr Lubomira Radoilska (lr271@cam.ac.uk)
