Janette Dinishak's work explores how Wittgenstein's concept "noticing an aspect" can provide a frame for capturing and understanding commonly neglected phenomena that are characteristic of autistic experience. She also traces the inter-relations between scientific, cultural, and first-person perspectives on autism and how these perspectives interact in shaping out understanding of autism. Janette Dinishak is Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at UC Santa Cruz.
