Increasingly, voices in the growing neurodiversity movement are alleging that individuals who are neurologically divergent, such as those with conditions related to bipolar disorder, autism, schizophrenia, and depression, must struggle for their civil rights. This movement therefore raises questions of interest to scholars in the humanities and social sciences, as well as to concerned members of the general public. These questions have to do with such matters as the accessibility of knowledge about mental health; autonomy and community within the realm of the mentally ill; and accommodation in civil society and its institutions. The contributors to Ethics and Neurodiversity explore these questions, and the traditional philosophical questions related to them. The authors pay special attention to the need to examine the policies and practices of institutions, such as higher education, social support, and healthcare.

C. D. Herrera is associate professor of philosophy at Montclair State University. His research interests include bioethics, ancient philosophy, and philosophy of sport. He is the editor of Theoretical and Applied Ethics, a quarterly journal.

Alexandra Perry is a lecturer in philosophy at Bergen Community College, and an adjunct assistant professor of philosophy at Drew University and William Paterson University. Her research interests include bioethics, philosophy of history, and cognitive science. She is the managing editor of Theoretical and Applied Ethics.
