Heidi M. Ravven, professor of religious studies, presented a paper and a poster at the International Neuroethics Society annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 10 and 11. 


Her abstract, "Rethinking Moral Agency via the New Brain Sciences and Spinoza," received a number of awards and honors at the meeting: the Superior Olive Award for publication of the abstract in The American Journal of Bioethics and Neuroscience; the choice of the paper as one of only five to be presented at a plenary session; and the only travel award to the meeting.  Ravven also participated in the small group discussion of the Free Will Working group.


 Ravven's paper is a summary of her forthcoming book, The Self Beyond Itself: An Alternative History of Ethics, the New Brain Sciences, and the Myth of Free Will, which will be published by The New Press in 2012.
