Title: Suzy Kilimister
Dignity, Respect, and Cognitive Disability

In this talk I examine the moral status of individuals with severe  
cognitive disability. The key question I focus on is what forms of respect  
such agents are owed, and on what basis. My goal is to vindicate the claim,  
commonplace in the philosophy of disability, that there is a meaningful  
moral difference between individuals with severe cognitive disabilities and  
non-human animals. Rather than try to vindicate that claim through appeal  
to the capacities of individuals with severe cognitive disabilities, or to  
their intimate relationships with other persons, I explore the potential of  
positing a social kind 'human', to which all human beings belong, and whose  
members are owed a certain form of respect.
