Beschreibung

This book explores the legal conception of personhood in the context of contemporary challenges, such as the status of non-human animals, human-animal biological mixtures, cyborgisation of the human body, or developing technologies based on artificial autonomic agents. It reveals the humanistic assumptions underlying the legal approach to personhood and examines the extent to which they are undermined by current and imminent scientific and technological advances. Further, the book outlines an original conception of non-personal subjecthood so as to provide adequate normative solutions for the problematic status of sentient animals and other kinds of entities. Arguably, non-personal subjects of law should be regarded as holding one right, and only one right - the right to be taken into account.

Presents a unique, critical exploration of the humanistic foundations of the law

Proposes an original concept of non-personal legal subjecthood as an alternative to e.g. legal personification of animals

Shares an exposition that is of the utmost relevance to current developments in the extra-legal sciences concerning the viability of the traditional legal view of personhood and the humanistic foundations of legal order
