This final chapter summarizes the arguments presented in this book. This book has presented an analysis and defence of the Doctrine of Doing and Allowing, arguing that permissions to allow harm and constraints against doing harm are integral of the protection against imposition necessary for anything to belong to a person, including his or her own body. The book has offered an account of the extent and limits of our obligations to aid others. It has looked at two major moral theories, Scanlonian contractualism and Hooker's rule-consequentialism to draw on the defence of the Doctrine of Doing and Allowing.
