Autonomy, considered as a subject's self sufficient designing of her personal designated 'individuality', isn't really a constitutive challenge for liberal concept. given that its earliest formulations, liberalism has taken it without any consideration that retaining rights is a enough warrantly for the primacy of person subjectivity. the main harmful legacy of the 'hierarchical-dualist' illustration of the topic is the primacy given to cause in defining an individual's identification. For Santoro freedom isn't a set degree. it's not the box of powers and rights defining an individual's position and identification. it is very the result of a strategy wherein contributors continually re-define the form in their individuality. Freedom is every thing that every people manages to be in his or her energetic and unsure competition to exterior 'pressures'.
