People with intellectual disabilities : Towards a good life? Paperback / softback
What does it mean to live a good life? Why has it proved so difficult for people with intellectual disabilities to live one?
What happens when we make a good life the centre of our consideration of people with intellectual disabilities?
These questions are explored through a re-examination of ideas from philosophy and social theory, and through personal life stories.
This important and timely book provides an analysis and critique of current policies and underpinning ideologies in relation to people with intellectual disabilities and explores ways in which a good life may be made more attainable.
