Our knowledge about how the brain works is exploding due to e g the development of fMRI technology. But what will happen when we can explain most of our behavior by looking into the brain? And realize that we in fact are unable to control a large part of the behavior we have??
Will that knowledge really have an impact on anything or will be just another scientific truth that will add more knowledge the giant heap of scientific truths that nobody else than scientists really care? The heap that step by step is moving science into the obscure corner with less and less impact on our daily lives?
