In recent years the concepts of individual autonomy and political liberalism have been the subjects of intense debate, but these discussions have occurred largely within separate academic disciplines. Autonomy and the Challenges to Liberalism contains for the first time new essays devoted to foundational questions regarding both the notion of the autonomous self and the nature and justification of liberalism. Written by leading figures in moral, legal and political theory, the volume covers inter alia the following topics: the nature of the self and its relation to autonomy, the social dimensions of autonomy and the political dynamics of respect and recognition, and the concept of autonomy underlying the principles of liberalism.

Industry Reviews

'... I believe that this volume makes an important contribution both to liberal political theory and to the theory of autonomous agency by bringing together articles that address the concept of autonomy from a variety of theoretical perspectives, using a diverse range of methodologies. The volume ought to contribute to the cross-pollination of the various literatures involved.' David Copp, University of Florida
