"What Is a Person"

I talk a bit in reply to a blog post about that question, including how an embryo might be "life" but not "a person" for legal purposes (but still something more than a simple "thing"), and how "person" might in some fashion apply to non-humans, which sci-fi suggests is somewhat obvious. "Person" is in effect a value marker.
