Pleneurethics is the philosophy developed by Richard Bangs Collier, based on work he did from the 1960s through to the 1980s. Mr. Collier coined the term ‘pleneurethics’ from the composite of three words:
Plenary, or completely competent and with total authority
Neural, relating to the nervous system and the brain
Ethics, having to do with responsible behavior and constructive conduct
The goal of Pleneurethics is to improve the quality of lives through better management of neurological resources so as to create and sustain neurological sufficiency. Pleneurethics espouses a balanced view of the whole person through an understanding of the physical, chemical, mental, and cultural environments of the brain. The way the brain is affected by these environments and responds to them determines one’s health, character, and ability to make responsible choices.
