Philosophers have various reasons to be interested in individual autonomy. Individual self-rule is widely recognized to be important. But what, exactly, is autonomy? In what ways is it important? And just how important is it? This book introduces contemporary philosophical thought about the nature and significance of individual self-rule.

Andrew Sneddon divides self-rule into autonomy of choice and autonomy of persons. Unlike most philosophical treatments of autonomy, Sneddon addresses empirical study of the psychology of action. The significance of autonomy is displayed in connection with such issues as paternalism, political liberalism, advertising and physician-assisted suicide. Sneddon both introduces the themes of contemporary autonomy studies and defends a novel account of its nature and significance. Autonomy is an ideal introduction for advanced-level undergraduate and postgraduate students to the issues and debates surrounding individual self-rule.

Review:

'Featuring appealing examples to illustrate complex theoretical points, a wonderfully readable reading style, thorough familiarity with the last three decades on autonomy theory, and helpful Reading Guides at the end of each chapter, Sneddon's Autonomy is an excellent introduction to the philosophical discussion of the nature and value of personal autonomy. It is the ideal map for anyone wishing to become familiar with the landscape of contemporary autonomy theory.' --James Stacey Taylor, Associate Professor Of Philosophy, The College Of New Jersey, USA 20121203
