Sample text

Although certainly an impressive address, it is important to recall some aspects of its context, beyond the need to inspire a people assembled in mourning. As far as equality before law is concerned, it is enough to note that Athens admitted slavery. To paraphrase a famous line from George Orwell’s allegorical Animal Farm, it seems that people of Athens are equal, but some are more equal than others. Independent thinking, though famously proclaimed in the funeral oration, was selective in Athens in addition to being biased by tradition and taboo.

In own areas of expertise, every individual can offer advice. Much of the advice is codified, as a visit to the library illustrates. Solicited or not, it will often be available precisely because it can influence choice. Advertisements are an obvious example. It appears that no nontrivial decision can be taken independently from advice. To be a tool of coordination, advice should have the capacity of constraining choice. It should eliminate alternatives, occasionally to the extent that only one remains.

This is essentially a question of how the presence of advice relates to the autonomy of choice. If advice does not affect individuals’ choices, its role for coordination is irrelevant; otherwise, it is proper to claim that coordination happens through advice. Autonomy refers to the ability to make one’s own laws. As the solitary castaway clearly has no one’s laws to obey but his own, he benefits from the autonomy of choice. His decision-making is entirely independent of advice. We called it ironic that a castaway has so much autonomy in choice, but so little to choose from.
