Aaa, how cute. Let's have a debate entitled 'Battle of Ideas' about the moral and legal implications of neuroscience, and let's have the panel consist of four white, middle-aged men who all agree, from the start, that neuroscience has no impact on notions of responsibility.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the panelists are morons, the sociologist at the end has an interesting thing or two to say and Pierre Magistretti made good contributions to a MUCH better discussion over at the incomparable Philoctetes Center. I'm saying whoever arranged this supposed Battle showed a moronic lack of imagination.
