Zooming out from the brain to foster translational neuroethics
In their valuable call-for-action paper, Wexler and Specker Sullivan (2021) propose an integration-inclusion-impact axis for “translational neuroethics,” to face the challenges and criticisms that neuroethics has aroused in its initial stages and to take the discipline into the future. One aspect mentioned by the authors is the interdisciplinary nature of neuroethics, in which academics with theoretical and empirical approaches converge. We propose to elaborate on this idea stressing the need to work on a fundamental neuroethics (Evers 2007) that, in our opinion, should “zoom out” from neuroessentialist and cerebrocentric views, thus increasing integration and inclusion.
