Developing a Personal Philosophy about Disability

Lawrence C. Becker, PhD

Larry Becker is a Fellow of Hollins University and Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, College of William & Mary. His teaching and writing in academic philosophy has focused on ethics, social and political philosophy, and legal philosophy. He had respiratory polio at the age of 13 (class of 1952), and has had an association with PHI since its beginnings, serving on its board of directors from 2000-2011. His most recent book is titled Habilitation, Health, and Agency: a Framework for Basic Justice. His presentation connects some themes from that book to his personal reflections on living with a disability.
