Relational Autonomy: Feminist Perspectives on Autonomy, Agency, and the Social Self

Catriona Mackenzie, Natalie Stoljar
Oxford University Press, 27 janv. 2000 - 328 pages
This collection of original essays explores the social and relational dimensions of individual autonomy. Rejecting the feminist charge that autonomy is inherently masculinist, the contributors draw on feminist critiques of autonomy to challenge and enrich contemporary philosophical debates about agency, identity, and moral responsibility. The essays analyze the complex ways in which oppression can impair an agent's capacity for autonomy, and investigate connections, neglected by standard accounts, between autonomy and other aspects of the agent, including self-conception, self-worth, memory, and the imagination.
