C. Stephen Evans

A debate is raging in our culture between two ways of understanding what it is to be a person. We are torn between understanding personhood in metaphysical terms, as a kind of entity, and understanding personhood as anachievement, a status which is attributed to something by virtue of that thing’s activities and/or relationships. On the first view persons are what we are; on the second view persons are something which we must become. I shall term these two ways of thinking about human personhood the metaphysical theory and the achievement theory.
