Philosophy & Disability Philosophy & Disability PHIL 4000/ WIND 4000 Instructor: Elizabeth Cantalamessa Fall 2021 Tue 4:30-7pm in-Person Philosophers often take themselves to be in the business of discovering necessary truths about human nature and reality. However, as disability theorist Tobin Siebers has argued, ‘disability’ functions as a “critical concept” because it raises problems for many of the concepts and values we take for granted as natural or given. In this class we will use disability as a lens to question the supposed necessity of various philosophical assumptions about: personhood, agency, testimony, health, gender, and personal identity, to name a few.
