In this eighth episode of the Wisdom for Life radio show, hosts Dan Hayes and Greg Sadler discuss one main challenge to personal development within relationships. How does one balance one’s own autonomy – and respect for the autonomy of others – with the desire for genuine connection within the framework of relationships. It might appear that the two of these are at odds with each other, and within come types of relationships, they typically are, to the detriment of both partners. Using resources from practical philosophy, Dan and Greg discuss guidelines for cultivating and respecting autonomy while maintaining and deepening relationships.
They also examine a representative question about a problematic relationship in which one partner does not respect the other’s autonomy.
They end the show by introducing a very helpful philosophical practice centered on effectively communicating what one needs from one’s partner.
