This paper presents a review of Stephen Darwall's book, "Welfare and Rational Care", explaining that the book is essentially a philosophical argument in favor of protecting the welfare of individuals even if they aren't interested in protecting it.

From the Paper:

"Welfare is a very controversial issue for ethical philosophers to deal with. Many of the difficulties relate to the dialectic between protecting the rights of the individual and caring for the individual even though they don't seem to have an interest in caring for themselves. Stephen Darwall attempts to deal with these issues in his book Welfare and Rational Care. In Welfare and Rational Care Darwall seems to be siding with the philosophical camp that views welfare as a caring act that is performed for the individual even if they might not want it."
