Write-up2 (as at 15/10/2020 23:31:12): Society
- I’d not imagined having to include a Note on this topic, but it seems that the social aspects of personhood are deemed to be the most important – indeed the defining – aspects of what it is to be a person by some contemporary philosophers.
- I have in mind Anne Sophie Meincke in this regard, but no doubt there are others.
- I have my doubts as it seems to encourage the widening of the net of personhood to include social animals – including ants and bees – that are clearly not persons unless personhood loses any appropriate sense of being a forensic property4.
- Compare with other assessments of what it is to be a person5, as in my discussion of Daniel Dennett – Conditions of Personhood6. The social aspect is assumed rather than explicitly mentioned.
