Abstract

Thanks to all commentators for their words of praise and constructive criticism. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that so many of them address the basic argument of my book, starting from the division of labour between the principles of respect for autonomy and compassion or beneficence, and resulting in my proposal of a ‘dual track’ system of legal regulation. The whole argument is well summarized by both Wayne Sumner and Isra Black.1 Together the comments provide a sustained examination of every major step in that argument. I will consider them step by step.
