About

Nicole A Vincent obtained her PhD in 2007 from the University of Adelaide in Australia. The concept of responsibility occupies centre stage in her work in the fields of neuroethics, neurolaw, ethics, philosophy of tort and criminal law, and political philosophy. Her approach is analytic and empirically-informed, and her past work has devoted equal attention to tackling conceptual, normative, metaphysical and practical problems. For example, she has written about such topics as the different meanings of the term “responsibility”, the compatibility of responsibility and determinism, medical interventions to make criminal offenders competent for execution, how neuroscience and behavioural genetics fit into criminal responsibility adjudication procedures, tort liability for failure to use cognitive enhancement medications, and whether people who live unhealthy lifestyles should have de-prioritised access to public health care resources and to organ transplants. She is Chief Investigator of the Enhancing Responsibility project at Technische Universiteit Delft in The Netherlands; an affiliate of the Centre for Agency, Values, and Ethics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia; and since 2013 she is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Law, and Neuroscience at Georgia State University in the United States.
