Reconsidering Intellectual Disability
Full Product Description
Reconsidering Intellectual Disability shows how a focus on Christian theological tradition's moral thinking and practice of friendship with God offers a way to free not only people with intellectual disabilities, but all persons from the objectifying gaze of modern medicine. L'Arche draws inspiration from Jesus's solidarity with the "least of these" and a commitment to Christian friendship that sees people with profound cognitive disabilities not as anomalous objects of pity, but as fellow friends of God. This vital act of social recognition opens the way to understanding the disabled not as objects to be fixed but as teachers, whose lives can transform others and open a new way of being human.
Reconsidering Intellectual Disability by Jason Reimer Greig was published by Georgetown University Press in November 2015. The ISBN for Reconsidering Intellectual Disability is 9781626162426.
