In doing so I shall try to say something about various conceptions of each, and to trace some of their relations to other ideas that are prominent in contemporary bioethics, such as those of respect for persons, informed consent and certain human rights. I hope to show that some conceptions of autonomy and of trust are compatible, and even mutually supporting. It will not, of course, follow that we must adopt these conceptions of autonomy and of trust. We may find reason to prefer others. However, if we rely on conceptions of autonomy and of trust that cannot be reconciled, then we cannot have both.

Proven reliability may be nice, but it is not necessary for placing trust. Equally, we can see that reliability see Richard Holton ‘Deciding to Trust, Coming to Believe’, Australasian Journal of Philosophy, , , –. Gaining autonomy and losing trust?  is not sufficient for placing trust, both because trust is not directed to natural processes (however reliable) but only to other agents, and because reliable agents are not always trusted.
