populations who often seek to remedy disability by way of technology, rather than personal inquiry or relationship building.
Disabilities are handled in an impersonal, disconnected problem solving manner, without much thought given to the human aspect required to effectively accomodate those with disabilities. This lack of human regard can be seen in many "wheelchair accesible" building designs, which often strike one as being wildly inconvenient for those attempting to use them.
The implication of these inconvenient designs is that those who require their use are themselves, an inconvenience.
Otherness: philosophical background and current interpretations:
noun a condition marked by impaired muscle coordination (spastic paralysis) and/or other disabilities, typically caused by damage to the brain before or at birth.
