Structures of Agency in Self-Oppression

My doctoral thesis aims to investigate the structures of agency at work in self-oppression. In doing so, it draws on, but also formulates some challenges to, Aristotle's philosophy of action, Self-Determination Theory, and the works of Michel Foucault. Pairing a conceptual approach to the question of self-oppression with a more empirical approach, the thesis concludes with a case study on experiences of agency and self-oppression in anorexia nervosa.
