The teachers, the ethical decisions and neuroscience
The children need to be taught about the world around them. They need to be given assistance from the teachers and the care givers to understand the world around them and to behave in ethical and moral way. In the current scenario, the parents are taking assistance of neuroscience to understand their children. There are certain approaches to deal with the moral questions. They are:
The Utilitarian Approach
This approach teaches that the future effects of the present action should be considered. People believing in this approach think that it is better to prevent any harmful acts, the offenders should be punished and people who can be taught to be good should be dealt likewise.
The rights Approach
People believing in this approach think that they have the right to make choices. They do not like people who interfere in their decisions. These people demand for truth, promises to be delivered, privacy in their lives and safety of their self. With reference to neuroscience, this group demands the right to know the advancements made by science and the effects of such technological advancements.
The people following this approach believe in just behavior. They do not tend to discriminate or practice favoritism. These people need to know all the good that neuroscience would do to the humans and they also want to know whether anybody would be left out in order to be benefitted with this subject.
A common good Approach
People falling in this group think that each human being is connected to one another. This results in the connected of all the communities in this whole world. Considering the advancements made by neuroscience, this group wants to know about the benefits to the communities. According to the people following this approach, neuroscience should be used in such a way that it helps all the communities (Reynolds, 2006).
