This chapter reviews the extent to which laws based on promotion of individual 'autonomy' (such as durable powers of attorney) conform with the lived lives and preferences of those for whom they are designed. It considers alternative conceptions of rights, including communitarian and social citizenship models, and discusses ways in which positive rights may better promote human flourishing.
