Introduction

This book is a feminist philosophical discussion of disability. It focusses on some of the issues concerning disability that interest me most. These issues are theoretical in the sense that they cannot be settled solely by discovering facts about the world, but they are also practical in that they have practical manifestations in the lives of people with and without disabilities. The book is not written primarily for an audience of professional philosophers (although I would like professional philosophers to read it); I have tried to make it accessible to any educated person interested in the issues it discusses.
