Product Description

What does it mean to be a human person? This volume is an historical inquiry into that foundational, deceptively simple question. Viewing the human person from various perspectives---law, education, business, media, religion, medicine, community life, gender, art---sixteen historians of American life explore how our understanding of personhood has changed over time and how that changing understanding has significantly affected our ideas about morality and human rights, our conversations about public policy, and our American culture as a whole.
