In this Cafe, poet and musician Yap offers a philosophical reflection on the experience of someone with Asperger’s
Syndrome, and looks at how this might shed a different light on the human condition, as well as on the possibility of continuing human evolution. We also look at some broader ethical issues surrounding how society views autistic spectrum disorders (ASD), and how these might force us to question the definition of “disability” more generally. Are conditions like ASD necessarily disabilities requiring therapy or cure?
