(p.171) Conclusion
People with intellectual disabilities

This concluding chapter reviews the philosophical ideas that support people's relationships with each other as citizens. It presents the argument that there is a need to move beyond an inward-looking approach towards disability in order to be ready to explore ideas and theories from outside the field. This would help in informing new ways of working and of viewing the nature of intellectual disability.

Keywords:   philosophical ideas, relationships, citizens, inward-looking approach, disability, nature, intellectual disability
