This chapter, drawn from the first ever presidential address on the topic of neuroethics at the annual meeting of the Society for Neurosciences, takes a look back at the discipline and a look forward. In 2003, the author projected areas of major neuroethical concern — privacy was a particularly big one — and brought attention to their ethical significance and meaning for neuroscience. This chapter reflects further on these issues, especially as they are raised in this volume, and brings us closer to realizing how intimately inseparable our science and specifically identity are from our moral world.
