In this brief piece I ask how can we know the truth(s) of what new neuroscience means for lived human identity? I offer some comments on how the specialty area of neuroethics might facilitate greater clarity on the implications of neuroscience for public and private (subjective) identities and understandings.My purpose is to suggest a suitable approach or orientation for achieving this and highlight some key questions to address, rather than to discuss the content of human identity and understanding when viewed through the lenses of new neuroscience.
