Diana Meyers's Being Yourself is an important and original theory of autonomy that manages, by virtue of both its philosophical rigor and its keen eye for the realm of practice, to show how moral agents can exercise their authentic selves in a world where socialization and political barriers prevail. Meyers's discussion of autonomy and female genital cutting contains the strongest argument I know for viewing autonomy within culture rather than against it. (Marion Smiley, J. P. Morgan Chase Chair in Ethics, Brandeis University).

Being yourself: living a life that is truly your own, that expresses your unique personality and your distinctive values. Many people want to live such a life. Being Yourself asks what it takes to do so. It examines questions about the self ― the individual who acts ― together with questions about self-expression ― the relations between the self and action. It explains self-knowledge and self-direction in terms of a repertory of skills that gives people insight into who they are, who they want to be, and how they want to engage with the world. Unlike other accounts of self and action, Being Yourself takes into account the multidimensionality of the self ― embodiment, interpersonal ties, nonconscious desires, and enculturation as well as rationality. It accents the ways in which atypical emotional responses, empathy, and oppositional imagery can contribute to moral understanding. It argues that repressive regimes cannot completely crush people's determination to live lives of their own, but it shows why it is vital to seek social changes that dismantle obstacles to this kind of life.
