Excerpt: I hope to do the following: first, offer a characterization of what an autonomous system is, or rather what mechanisms endow a system with a degree of autonomy; second, to apply this characterization to three cases of relevance; third, to offer some remarks on the issue of formalizations of these ideas; forth, and finally, I shall conclude with some comment about the relation between autonomy and cognitive pheno­mena.
