We generally conceive of blindness as a physical condition with negative effects. Most research documents how blindness creates a distorted view of reality and devises methods of coping with it. For Rod Michalko, however, being blind enhances his ability to learn and teach. Blindness to him is a unique viewpoint that reveals aspects of the world never seen before. This viewpoint disrupts our understanding of sight and sightedness. Blind people shadow sighted culture, remaking and reproducing it through their actions. Sighted people do the same thing but cannot see themselves doing so. Blindness reveals the mystery of the eye that sight cannot see, and tells a story that teaches us about the human condition.
The Mystery of the Eye and the Shadow of Blindness unravels the ways that blind people come to understand and live their lives. It shows that blindness is a life worth living and that the blind must grapple with the question of what kind of blind people they choose to be. Rod Michalko's vision of blindness promises to ripple through the blind community and its supporters, crash over the breakers of science, and seep into the groundwaters of sociology, anthropology, education, and philosophy.
