A Political Theory of Rights

Attracta Ingram

Oxford University Press

This chapter advocates a Kantian conception of autonomy that emphasises the connection with self-imposed moral law. Autonomy is viewed as a complex ideal of positive freedom with personal and political aspects. The complexity suggests an interplay of personal and political aspects which operates to preclude their separate development in ways that undermine political allegiance or personal choice.

Keywords:   moral rights, autonomy, freedom, Kant
