The Context of Ethics in the Brain, Psychology, and Law

Standard Coming Soon book cover

The brain has long fascinated researchers in various fields of sciences and social sciences. The integration of brain science with the law is important for understanding culpability, along with attribution of intention and action. As law relies on free will, and brain science seems to be taking a deterministic approach, the reconciliation between the two can be better attained by taking into account socio-cultural factors such as social identity and power. 

The Context of Ethics in the Brain, Psychology, and Law discusses some of the aspects of human existence in the social world such as the place of the brain in mind, society and law, consciousness and dignity, everyday understanding of the law, free will, gendering and politicizing, effects of social identity, and effects of stereotypes on evidence. 

The book offers a critical psychological perspective to understand the integration of brain and law. It is aimed at students and scholars of ethics, social sciences, and law.
