Abstract

Two responses move from Wondrously Wounded to develop constructive proposals about how Christians might think better about autism. Elizabeth Agnew Cochran is interested in how the phenomenon of autism forces an expansion of contemporary accounts of moral agency and human flourishing. Her contribution is to draw together my account of moral agency with that of Grant Macaskill (2019), locating our respective interventions within debates in disability theology about how best to describe the moral agency of people with various sorts of intellectual disability. Cochran’s descriptive work very usefully sets out the convergences (which are many) and differences (a matter of emphasis) in the ways that Macaskill and I theologically account for the moral agency of autistic people.
