Title: Neil Levy (Macquarie/Oxford)
Nudging is giving reasons
Abstract: Nudges are, roughly, ways of tweaking the context in which agents  
choose in order to bring them to make choices that are in their own  
interests. Nudges are controversial: opponents argues that because they are  
bypass our reasoning processes, they threaten our autonomy. Proponents  
respond that nudging, and therefore this bypassing, is inevitable and  
pervasive: if we do not nudge ourselves in our own interests, the same  
bypassing processes will tend to work to our detriment. In this paper, I  
argue that we should reject the premise common to opponents and proponents:  
that nudging bypasses our reasoning processes. Rather, well designed nudges  
present reasons to mechanisms designed to respond to reasons of just that  
kind. In this light, it is refusing to nudge that threatens our autonomy,  
by refusing to give us good reasons for action.
