|Meyer, Kirsten (2011): Political liberalism and the value of autonomy. XXII. Deutscher Kongress für Philosophie, 11. - 15. September 2011, München.|
Is there a conflict between the claim that the state ought not to promote any values and the idea that it ought to encourage autonomy? Colburn (2010) denies such a conflict. In this paper, I will argue that Colburn’s considerations fail to dissolve the dissent between political liberalism and an autonomy-minded perfectionism. In order to show this, I will focus on the question of whether or not the state may be committed to the value of autonomy in the educational system.
