Cognitive Enhancement? Why not worry instead about apple pie?

Abstract

This thesis argues that the neuroethical debate regarding cognitive enhancement drugs, as it stands, expounds arguments that fail as a result of the success of the Extended Cognition thesis. Instead this thesis suggets that arguments that support the ethically problemtatic nature of cognitive enhancement drugs focus on the metaphorical influence they have on the self.
