Wendell points to the philosophical arbitrariness of ideas concerning which of us is independent. She argues that independence, like disability, is de®ned according to societal expectations about what people normally do for themselves and how they do it. We can develop this argument in respect of understandings of social and economic forms of independence and dependence, and argue that whilst expectations may have a philosophical arbitrariness about them, they do not have a social or historical arbitrariness about them.
