Article title

The body as a value in the axiology of disabled persons


Title variants

Languages of publication



The body adopts the specific contents, functions, and places of the axiological system in persons with a disability. It can adopt the contents of ultimate, instrumental, vital, utilitarian, cultural, moral, religious, and other values. It can represent, for example, cognitive, judging, motivating, and expressive functions. Moreover, the body itself can take a central or peripheral place. It is the recognition of these various contents, functions and places of the body in the axiological system of disabled persons that allows us to identify their needs and goals, as well as to assess the methods of achieving them. Therefore, it is through this knowledge that we can understand an individual with a disability in the widest possible context, which takes into account the biological, psychological and social dimensions of their behavior.
