Scheffler argues, in response to criticisms by Jonathan Bennett, that there is a non‐trivial sense of ‘agent‐centredness’ that applies to both an agent‐centred prerogative and agent‐centred restrictions. In further articulating this notion of agent‐centredness, Scheffler anticipates and responds to four objections that Bennett might make to his argument. He also discusses the relation between agent‐centredness and the doing/allowing distinction.
