    Abstract

    This paper discusses the historical project and idea of comparison, then moves on to a discussion of the role of thinking theoretically in terms of process and not object relations, a shift from a focus on binaries to aporias. The paper outlines the development of Studies in Ableism as well as presuppositional foundations of systems of ableism, and the delimitation of abledment and disablement. Finally, the paper contributes to thinking about the meaning of ableism in a more precise way.
