Meaning and place of health in the system of values of the physically disabled people doing art

Małgorzata Janowska-Matuszewska


The concept of „being healthy” means something different for everyone. The cause for this discrepancy lies in multifarious determinants of health and depends i.a. on age, sex, social situation, and especially on the system of values determining aims in life.

For the disabled health is an important, but not an indispensable condition to achieve personal happiness. This way of thinking stands in contradiction to the one presented by the able-bodied. Actively pursuing one’s passion for art increases life satisfaction of the disabled, both in the personal and in the professional sphere of life.
