Most of the ethical discussion of the use of stimulant drugs without a prescription in education has been negative, associating their use with performance enhancement in sports and with drug abuse. But the use of stimulants as study drugs actually has few side effects, and is almost entirely applied to the student's primary obligation, academic performance. In this talk, Dr. Hughes will consider the objections to off-label stimulant use, and to stimulant therapy for ADD, and argue that there are ethical arguments for the use of stimulants and future cognitively and morally enhancing therapies, in education, the work place, and daily life.
