Abstract


The article presents the problem of autonomy in terms of cognitive science, dividing it into the problem of autonomy of the subject and problem of subjectless autonomy, and by outlining this division with relevant research questions. Overview of autonomy in a philosophical context, as personal autonomy, and as well as in the context of psychology, by using the theory of self-determination, has laid the foundations for the possibility of identifying the autonomy of the subject with the concept of free will. Focusing on the autonomy of the subject, by proposing more detailed definition of it was proposed: to understand it as a combination of self-knowledge and self-regulation. This could be the first step towards solving the problem of autonomy in terms of cognitive science.
