Autistic Symphony offers a unique look at the fascinating subject of autism. Challenging the psychiatric and scientific perspectives that focus exclusively on disabilities and impairments, Autistic Symphony celebrates the challenges and rewards experienced by every autistic individual, and argues that far from being a medical monster, autism is one of our culture's greatest strengths.
Through five essays incorporating viewpoints from biology, history, anthropology, religion, science, art, and philosophy, Autistic Symphony explores the possibility autism has much to tell us about our species, and about the development of its modern civilizations.
