In this essay we argue that taking smart drugs by students within academia should be considered to be a moral cheating and, what is more, could possibly have destructive social consequences for academia practice. The critique draws on MacIntyre’s analyses of virtues, internal goods and practices. This theory shows that using smart drugs to improve one’s abilities threatens the nature of the academia practice by replacing the internal goods by the external ones.
