And the same vulnerability allows us to experience great new avenues of thought. Brown concentrates on two questions which she views as utterly dangerous and detrimental to the growth of individuals and society. The writer and philosopher Roman Krznaric, in a talk he gave at the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, talked about Patricia Moore, the woman who helped pass the Americans with Disabilities Act, and who pioneered a whole generation of new architecture friendly to people with disabilities. Those questions are, what should I be afraid of, and, who’s to blame for it?
