9780754670131: Law, Mind and Brain (Medical Law and Ethics)

Over the past 20 years, cognitive neuroscience has revolutionized our ability to understand the nature of human thought. Working with the understandings of traditional psychology, the new brain science is transforming many disciplines, from economics to literary theory. These developments are now affecting the law and there is an upsurge of interest in the potential of neuroscience to contribute to our understanding of criminal and civil law and our system of justice in general. The international and interdisciplinary chapters in this volume are written by experts in criminal behaviour, civil law and jurisprudence. They concentrate on the potential of neuroscience to increase our understanding of blame and responsibility in such areas as juveniles and the death penalty, evidence and procedure, neurological enhancement and treatment, property, end-of-life choices, contracting and the effects of words and pictures in law. This collection suggests that legal scholarship and practice will be increasingly enriched by an interdisciplinary study of law, mind and brain and is a valuable addition to the emerging field of neurolaw.

Review:

'...of interest to both lawyers and medical professionals...[these chapters] contain insights and observations which significantly further the dialogue between law and science in this important area of debate.' New Zealand Medical Journal '...a worthwhile read as a hint to what the future science of the brain may hold for the practice of law.' Law Society Journal '...this excellent treatise not only contains a collection of very interesting papers characterized by in-depth analysis of most relevant aspects of neuroscientific developments, but also corrects a common misunderstanding, according to which only criminal law is challenged by neurosciences.' Journal of Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 'This book is a perfect fit for medical law and ethics readers. Those in traditional fields of medicine, psychology and law will also find it very useful especially for the depth with which the issues are covered... highly recommended for postgraduate students not only because of the level of readership it was pitched for but mainly because most chapters in this book identify current research gasps in knowledge.' Metapsychology
