Abstract:This paper examines Bentham’s provision for indigent people with disabilities, to reveal the discourse within which he constructs the problem of disability. Bentham’s analysis reifies and institutionalizes such people, but also demonstrates insight into the social nature of “disability,” in a way that anticipates both the strengths and weaknesses of the social model of disability.
