Heikki Ikäheimo (UNSW Australia, Sydney) talks at research seminar of philosophy. He tells:

"In this paper I argue that the question 'what makes something/-one a person?' or 'what are the person-making characteristics?' is best answered in terms of a holistic notion of membership in what I call the 'the life-form of persons'. I articulate some details of this conception, and discuss how it could be used for immanent social critique across cultural and other differences. This articulation aims to cash out the idea that personhood is equally an ontological and an ethical notion, or that there is an inbuilt ethically evaluative dimension to what it is to be a person."
