Rhythms of life in the brain, showing Freeman neurodynamics, ground the idea of the neurodynamic psyche. Interactive rhythms through language and holistic patterns of meaning are part of 'ways of going on' (Wittgenstein). Truth connects language to the world, and social connections unite us within life's rhythms. Neural rhythms must holistically include neurocognitive connection with biopsychosocial life and embedded 'reactive attitudes' to direct us 'After Virtue' (MacIntyre), manifesting Natural Goodness (Foot) for wellbeing. Such self-integration has normative implications.
Emeritus Professor Grant Gillett's research ranges widely in Bioethics, philosophy, and neuroscience.

In Neuroethics he has written widely on brain birth, brain death, PVS, and minimally conscious states, and issues of free will identity and responsibility.
