Summary
This paper dwells on the question of how we can enhance perspectives on the enhancement of attention in children. By shifting the neuro-enhancement of attention debate from the field of (pediatric) biomedicine into the area of philoso- phy of technology of control and philosophy of attention, I render two concepts operative for the neuroethical debate on enhancing children’s attention in self- melioration: control and autonomy in attention enhancement. The shaping of a self entails three things: First, individual work on personality traits. Second, the cultural notion of collective formation in a world shaped by others. Third, it includes self-melioration (Selbstverbesserung) that contains both terms of self- formation and Kipke’s narrow account of Neuro-enhancement. Concerning attention enhancements in children music enrichment as well as mathematical skill-formation will be analysed briefly.
