From one’s own independent or autonomous recognition and acceptance of the standards of moral rightness. Such a conception of moral goodness or virtue is set forth by philosophers as otherwise different as Aristotle and Kant, and I think there is much that is sound in it.

For if autonomy consists in choosing one’s own standards because they are one’s own, then this rules out accepting certain standards because they are morally right or good.
