By applying all available knowledge, human achievements can be improved again and again. Achievements in music, arts, sports, science and daily life continuously rise with the help of diets, training, healthcare etc. Which techniques are effective in enhancing the human (brain) potential? Which are safe and acceptable? Will the future bring us smart drugs, infant education, or the implementation of microchips in brains?

Students follow nine seminars by international experts and use the presented literature for interviews and to write essays with interdisciplinary views on 'Maximizing Human Potential'.
