Framing Cognitive Enhancement Policy
This chapter presents an admittedly speculative policy approach to dealing with the wide array of potential enhancement interventions. It also discusses the need for dedicated research on CE, especially CE devices. It argues the need for medical technology assessment of CE techniques that include analysis of long-term, second-order consequences, both positive and negative. It then examines what, if any, boundaries of social justification there are for mandatory use, economic incentives, licensing, disincentives or prohibition of cognitive enhancement technologies.
