The conception of autonomy described in the previous chapter yields interconnected norms of Equal Respect, Reasonableness, Generality, Symmetry, Secularity, and Universality. The interpretation of these norms is led by an understanding of autonomy which precludes the possibility of any conversation constrained by them concluding in favour of self-ownership and its proprietary rights. If autonomy is our moral and political ideal, we are committed to an expressivist rather than a modus vivendi view of politics.

Keywords:   conversational constraints, self-ownership, proprietary rights, autonomy, expressivism
