This book puts forward an ethical case against promoting neuroenhancement in modern society. It does so by invoking a normative
platform that can be couched in three S’es: synapses, self, and society —themselves symbolizing the three main sources
of influence in neuroethics. From this platform, it seeks to protect the individual’s right to choose the good over what
is purportedly better, thereby contributing a philosophical perspective not only to the neuroenhancement debate, but
to the other debates in neuroethics as well.
