    • There is a notion of autonomy implicit in some philosophical writing and including the work of Rousseau, Kant, Hegel and Marx. According to this conception, a person is autonomous if he or she subscribes to principles that have been formed by his or her own moral scrutiny. Integral to at least some of the philosophers’ thinking is the idea that the individual is part of a collective; a member of society. For me to be autonomous, it is not sufficient that you leave me alone; rather the way I am treated by you has a bearing on my autonomy, and reciprocally for you.
