Resumé

In the case of psychotropic and nootropic substances, evidence is
abundant that the pharmaceutical industries are violating elementary ethical
norms, implying a serious liability not only for company managements, but also
for researchers, laboratory staff, etc. Moreover, the rapidly expanding consumption
of these substances seems to have radical repercussions on society
and cultural norms. This paper points to three such further consequences: an
abnormal spread of diagnostics in human interaction (Section 7.1); a potential
suspension of the elementary fight for recognition (Section 7.2); and an everpresent
demand for perfection in both working and private lives (Section 7.3).
The question of responsibility for these developments is addressed.
