Really fascinating post, Mona. In the context of what I consider "the fact" that humans are always looking for ways to up their personal survival stakes, I'm not at all surprised that cognitive enhancement, for the rich, at least, at this time, is on the horizon. If cholinesterase inhibitors aren't found to do the trick, we can be sure that the interest in this concept will guarantee that something else will be found that will.
I am deeply concerned about this enhancement being added to the vagaries of class status. Even more of a reason for a global economic revolution that levels the playing field and allows us to think sanely about, you know, our perpetual concern with "what to do about" being human.
