dc.description.abstractOwing to the nature of their disability, paternalism is an inevitable reality in the daily lives of the intellectually disabled. Decision-making by others for their assumed best interests, but without their explicit consent, is usually beneficial and frequently justifiable. Unfortunately, the history of care for those with intellectual disabilities is replete with examples of misguided and often harmful paternalism excluding them from activities that are central to their ability to flourish. This paper analyzes under what conditions paternalism in the care of adults with cognitive disabilities is justified, and is limited to instances in which such paternalism seeks to advance their spirituality.en_US
