Review
"Glannon's work addresses a wide range of fascinating issues of modern medicine and related ethical issues which should be of great interest for neuroscientists and practicing neurologists, psychiatrists and researchers interested and engaged in bioethics, a problem widely neglected until today. Bioethics and the Brain is one of the most fascinating books about the problems and relations between neuroscience, practical medicine, and bioethics."--European Journal of Neurology "Walter Glannon recognizes the power and importance of the ongoing revolution in our understanding of the human brain, and this recognition is what makes Bioethics and the Brain especially welcome as one of the first efforts to systematically examine the metaphysical, existential, ethical, and legal consequences of this revolution."--New England Journal of Medicine "Glannon's work addresses a wide range of fascinating issues of modern medicine and related ethical issues which should be of great interest for neuroscientists and practicing neurologists, psychiatrists and researchers interested and engaged in bioethics, a problem widely neglected until today.

The book will be extremely valuable to anyone seriously interested in the field of neuroethics. Scholars from other disciplines will appreciate Glannon's clearly written and well-documented scholarship." -- William Winslade, American Journal of Bioethics
