Tsai, George. Rational Persuasion as Paternalism
2014, Philosophy and Public Affairs 42(1): 78-112.
Added by: Carl FoxContent: Tsai argues that offering another agent reasons can sometimes count as paternalism when it is motivated by distrust of the other's agency, conveys this lack of confidence, and intervenes in the target's sphere of agency.
Comment: Best suited as further or specialised reading on paternalism and agency.Export citation in BibTeX formatExport text citationView this text on PhilPapersExport citation in Reference Manager formatExport citation in EndNote formatExport citation in Zotero format
