Urgent research should be done on social theories of disability if research is to improve the quality of disabled people's lives.

Shelley

hi Regina,

I agree with you that philosophers and other academics must give more critical attention to disabled people, our concerns, our social situation, our subjection, discrimination against us, etc.

There is in fact a growing body of critical work on disability and disabled people elsewhere in the humanities and social sciences. However, critical philosophical work on disability remains severely marginalized in the discipline. One aim of this blog is to bring critical scholarship on disability to the centre of discussion in philosophy. The symposium on Melinda Hall's book which was posted here last week is a vital part of that activity.
