BROGNA, Patricia. A triadic notion: condition, situation and position of disability. Andamios [online]. 2023, vol.20, n.52, pp.333-362.  Epub 17-Nov-2023. ISSN 2594-1917.

This article addresses the concept of disability by covering the multiple dimensions and coordinates that intersect the phenomenon from a perspective that makes it possible to describe, analyse and understand the complexity of what is entwined in the term disability. It aims to present a theoretical-conceptual distinction with heuristic, analytical and explanatory capacity based on the triad of condition, situation and position of disability. To this end, a study was carried out in order to deploy relevant conceptual mediations that provide solidity and density to each notion and its articulations. From the results, the condition of disability is related to the material and symbolic state of the very personal and non-transferable experience in the biographical trajectories and the imprints of subjectivation. The situation of disability refers to the processes of disablement that emerge from face-to-face interactions in everyday life, from intersubjective experiences, from co-presence and co-inhabiting. Finally, the position of disability refers to the aspects and structural dynamics of long time that demarcate this position in the social field, in relation to the other historically constituted positions. The final reflections help to appreciate a reality in which the coordinates of the triad —like light, which is sometimes a wave and sometimes a particle— sometimes function as dimensions, sometimes as levels and sometimes as communicating vessels.
