Show Summary Details


This chapter talks about the different ways the problems presented by intellectual impairment has been framed and the different solutions adopted. These include the problem in the early twentieth century, to the current one, which is the presence of the denial of opportunities and supports to live a good life. The chapter also argues that since the twentieth century, people have moved from excluding those who are regarded as unequal under the social contract to the theoretical inclusion of these people within this framework.

Keywords: intellectual impairment; problem; adopted solutions; denial; opportunities; supports; social contract; theoretical inclusion
