"The Ethics of Eliminating Painful Memories"
Please join us for a discussion about the ethics of eliminating painful memories. In an attempt to treat experiences of PTSD, should health care providers offer patients access to drugs that would dampen or eliminate painful memories? Building on debates in biomedical ethics, Dr. Amy McKiernan (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Dickinson College) will explore the ethics of erasing painful memories, including what our intuitions about eliminating painful memories reveal about our values.
