Legal Personhood: Animals, Artificial Intelligence and the Unborn

Legal Personhood: Animals, Artificial Intelligence and the Unborn
Visa A.J. Kurki Tomasz Pietrzykowski
Springer , 2017

This edited work collates novel contributions on contemporary topics that are related to human rights. The essays address analytic-descriptive questions, such as what legal personality actually means, and normative questions, such as who or what should be recognised as a legal person. As is well-known among jurists, the law has a special conception of personhood: corporations are persons, whereas slaves have traditionally been considered property rather than persons.
