QUALE FORMA DI VITA? L’autismo nell’epoca del Social Communication Questionnaire

Monica Matera, Marco Mazzeo


What Form of life? Autism in the age of the Social Communication Questionnaire

The article is divided into two parts. The first discusses the notion of “form of life”. In contemporary philosophical debate, this expression has acquired a significant role. Its theoretical topicality has shown an unusual convergence with the growing scientific interest in autistic spectrum disorders. The second is an in-depth discussion on the philosophical assumptions on which the internationally widespread diagnostic test of autism that is currently being distributed in Italian schools seems to be based (the Social Communication Questionnaire), in order to show its inconsistencies and weaknesses.
