Preface to a Theory of Consent Transactions in Research: Beyond Valid Consent
This chapter first asks whether informed consent is a necessary condition for ethical research and then questions the dominant—autonomous authorization—model of informed consent. Rather than focus on the subject's state of mind, a theory of consent should understand consent as a bi-lateral transaction. From that perspective, some problems, such as the therapeutic misconception, may be less important than commonly thought.
