Redefining Disability: Maleficent, Unjust and Inconsistent
Boxall, Susanna Flavia
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 2008 December; 33(6): 558-576
Disability activists' redefinition of "disability" as a social, rather than a medical, problem attempts to reassign causality. We explicate the untenable implications of this approach and argue this definition is maleficent, unjust, and inconsistent. Thus, redefining disability as a socially caused phenomenon is, from a moral point of view, ill-advised.
