Is there a meaningful difference between you and your brain?
Asked by kneck (52 ) March 11th, 2007
I'm thinking about the recent New York Times Magazine article. A lawyer can ask a jury to give a lighter sentence to their client who has some "biological" explanation for their crimes, such as a brain tumor in their frontal lobe. But I'm also thinking about medication for mental illness: does a substance change the person, or just the brain? Is it different for a pharmaceutical drug versus alcohol, which both change your brain/you in some way?
