Neuroetica, science of the brain, philosophy and free will  is a collection of eight papers edited by Andrea Lavazza, scholar of Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science and Giuseppe Sartori, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience.
The essays mirror the different approaches of their authors (mainly philosophers, but also lawyers and psychologists), therefore the book does not present a unitary and coherent view.
The editors themselves point out, in the introduction, that the “aim of the book is to deepen knowledge about neuroethics, providing the reader with a general understanding of the recent developments, highlighting the consequences deriving from these developments and introducing the terminology related to the debate and to investigation in this field”.
