Abstract: This thesis examines various ethical implications of neurological enhancement—the use of biotechnical means to make the brain “better than well.” I argue that cognitive and mood enhancement can threaten important things of value. Specifically, cognitive enhancement erodes the need for perseverance as resilience, and mood enhancement exposes individuals with certain character traits to harmful pressures.
