Autonomy and Paternalism

In Autonomy (Bloomsbury 2013), I offer a theory of the nature of autonomy and an account of its significance. Two distinctions structure these accounts. One is between autonomy of choice and autonomy of persons. The other is between valuing something as a goal and valuing something as a constraint. I shall explain and show the power of these distinctions through an examination of paternalism, that is, of interfering with someone’s autonomy for their own good but without their agreement.
