Neurodiversity

July 14, 2008

Objectively, there is neurodiversity. Anything else, any commentary on this neurological diversity, is interpolation and evaluation.

If I observe people, and I conclude that certain categories on the human spectrum are “abnormal” (as opposed to atypical), I am introducing a redaction (an edit). Likewise, if, in making my observations, I decide that some categories are superior to others (whether NT or autistic), I am also redacting.

Neurodiveristy is not only a splendid value position (IMO). It is also the only purely neutral scientific definition.
