Concluding remarks

  • The theory of monotropism is a welcome departure from the theoretical dominance of positivism, yet is also not without its critics.
  • Finally, whatever the biological cause of the ‘autistic difference’ may be in noumenal reality, the way in which autism is socially constructed and constituted through discourse, is an academic research area which has been woefully subsumed under the weight of cognitive and biomedical frames of reference.
