Neurosciences and Natural Law

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Neurosciences; Neuroethics; Natural Law.

In the first three sections of this paper, the author examines the ambiguous usage of legal and moral terminology in the field of neurosciences. The fourth section is devoted to the analysis of the natural law tradition: obviously in this context naturalistic tendencies have been opposed and isolated by the forbiddance derived from the naturalistic fallacy argument. The question is whether neurosciences can attribute a new (by any chance different and debatable) role to the "nature" in law and morals.
