Using the concept of personal sovereignty sketched in previous chapters, in which an autonomous individual is viewed as analogous to an autonomous state, Feinberg claims that the self‐regarding and other‐regarding distinction can be used as a guide to map the boundaries of personal autonomy. He goes on to examine autonomy contrasted with liberty and de facto freedom, personal sovereignty compared with constitutional privacy, autonomous forfeitures of liberty, and deciding for one's future self.
