The aim of this chapter is to find a middle way between animalism and constitution view and to develop a concept of a person’s life which avoids their problems. I will argue for the following thesis: As humans we are persons, but we are persons not in the sense of certain characteristics or abilities, which distinguish our biological kind, but by a certain form of our life. Therefore, I will strictly distinguish between the biological species form of human beings and the life form of humans as persons. This allows me to develop an account of the personal life form which unifies metaphysics and value.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>A person's life : Uniting metaphysics and value</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/40"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Noller, Jörg</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Noller, Jörg</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
