To transform the classroom atmosphere from heteronomy to autonomy, we offer the following recommendations:
It uses you simply as a means to my end and, by making you adopt my maxim, induces heteronomy into your will.
But it also acknowledges heteronomy, the claim of the Creator and of the common good.
As far as first order morality is concerned, it obviously makes less sense to talk about autonomy or heteronomy, since for those individuals capable of having moral sentiments there is almost no choice but to submit themselves to reciprocal demands.
In this case the believer or the believing community surrenders its autonomy to a heteronomy. One is defined by the representation of the Other, the holy other.
The heteronomy (8) of the nineteenth-century historical novel with regards to historical and intellectual discourses on the 'proper' place of woman in the nation is by no means confined to Foscolo and Nievo but also shapes Federico De Roberto's I Vicere (1894).
Famously, Tillich construed "theonomy," "autonomy," and "heteronomy" as three different means of settling the question of the nomos or law of life, each of them a distinct way of precluding the sort of anomie (literally "lawlessness") that Soyinka presently senses.
He came to believe that the sphere of autonomy, where we can pursue ends that are freely chosen--not dictated by the demands of efficient production--and voluntarily tend to the physical and moral needs of our families, friends and communities, must be carved out from the sphere of heteronomy (the realm of socially necessary but unfree labour) through a kind of molecular boring from within--a strategy referred to as "exodus."

As Guntert himself admits in another essay on heteronomy as a problem of poetics, Pessoa's heteronyms and Machado's apocryphal writers "son dos fenomenos que aparecen independientemente uno de otro" ("La heteronimia" 158).
Those with a more theoretical or analytical bent might pursue to more radical ends two propositions embedded in The Ballets: that all of Ravel's music is essentially dance music, and that the heteronomy of ballet--dependent as it is upon fragile and ephemeral constellations of artists, performers, and media--challenges the notions of strong authorship and the unified, self-identical artwork.
There is a close relation between such remarks and the problem of heteronomy. Thus, one can draw a parallel between Pessoa and Nietzsche also on this point.
Taking issue with the frequently made distinction between the heteronomy often attributed to the individual in earlier periods and the autonomy attributed to the modern subject, she convincingly argues that early modern texts display 'heterology' (a theory she takes from Verena Olejniczak, 'Heterologie: Konturen fruhneuzeitlichen Selbstseins jenseits von Autonomie und Heteronomie', LiLi, 26 (1996), 6-36).
