Abstract

This paper presents different approaches to the concept of personal autonomy in the disability context. It draws attention to the ways the requirements for “competent” bodies and autonomy of the “incarnate” subject affect the usual way of understanding the autonomy of people with disabilities, i.e. a higher degree of physical dependence may be perceived as a lower degree of autonomy.
