This chapter explores the violations of self-goal choice and does so through a critique of Amartya Sen’s interpreters and critics who have commented on the violation of self-goal choice. It argues that Sen’s critics misrepresent Sen and that the best way of interpreting what the latter means by violations of self-goal choice is to conceive them in terms of goalless choices. The chapter examines the test of Sen’s independence claim using the choice-theoretic interpretation of the characteristics of privateness. It offers remarks on the violation of self-goal choice in an attempt further to elucidate its meaning and offer an assessment of its plausibility. The reformulation states that a choice which violates self-goal choice neither realizes nor violates self-welfare goal. Self-goal choice, by implication, is violated when the person restrains her choices in recognition of other people’s goals.
