New advances in brain science seem to be moving into legal territory. For example, if we know that a tumor caused violent activity, do we still find the defendant guilty? How do we conceive of punishment? Is “my neurons made me do it!” a valid defense in a court of law? And what are the lessons we can take away for the future of science and morality? Alasdair Coles and Fraser Watts explore these questions from a Christian perspective.
Discussion led by Dr. Nicholas Gibson.
