dc.description.abstractThe 'body' has remained the pivotal and essential mechanism for analysis within disability scholarship. Yet while historically conceptualized as an individual's fundamental feature, the 'disabled identity' has been more recently explained as a function of 'normalcy' through social, cultural political, and legal discriminations against difference and deviancy. Disability studies' established tradition of consultation with philosophical endeavour remains apparently unwilling to exploit or utilize Martin Heidegger's understanding of 'Being' and interpretation of Dasein as a possible framework for unravelling the complexities of contemporary discrimination and oppression of those others. This paper in tracing Heidegger's explanation of humankind, inspired by arguments proposed by Cerbone (Int J Philos Stud 2:209-230, 2000) and in consultation with Levin (The body: classic and contemporary readings, Blackwell, Malden, 1999), Aho (2009), Malpas (Heidegger's topology: being place, world, MIT Press, Cambridge, 2008), and Rae (Hum Stud 33:23-39, 2010) among others, will interpret the 'embodied' reality of 'Being,' of being-disabled-in-the-world as primarily involved within the practical context and structured according to impersonal, normative social norms, rather than detached, theoretical contemplation or observance.
