Sapare Aude: The term autonomia/Autonome is derived from the Greek “auto–nomos” referring to someone or something which lives by his/her own rule. Autonomy, in this sense, is not independence. While independence refers to an autarcic kind of life, separated from the community, autonomy refers to life in society but by one’s own rule. Aristotle thus considered that only beasts or gods could be independent and live apart from the polis (“community”), while Kant defined the Enlightenment by autonomy of thought and the famous “Sapere aude” (“dare to know”).
