What Makes Man Different from Animals.16

"But I differ from Aristotle over certain aspects of anthropology, particularly over his definition of the human being as 'a rational animal', a definition which excludes people with mental handicaps from humanity. I would sooner define the human being as 'someone capable of love'."

--Jean Vanier, Our Journey Home
