This paper contends that to fully understand interactions between agents, one must understand the dependence and autonomy relations that hold between the interacting agents. Individual variations, interpersonal dependencies, and environmental factors are determinants of autonomy that will be discussed in this paper. The paper concludes with a discussion of situations when autonomy is harmful.
