The Emergence of Persons

The Emergence of Persons

(p.201) 10 The Emergence of Persons
Embodiment, Enaction, and Culture

Mark H. Bickhard

The MIT Press

I will present a model of persons as emergent forms of socio-cultural agency. Such a model requires a framework metaphysics that makes sense of the normative dynamic emergence of agents, which, in turn requires a metaphysics of process. I will also briefly address how this model of persons as interactive agents relates to persons as moral agents.
