Sumario:The purpose of this paper is to think the autonomy, not as a pure ethical concept, but from the perspective of his metaphors and inside the context of an embodied ethics. For this, first, I approach the concept of autonomy from the different historical perspectives, emphasizing the conception of Kant and Mill. Secondly, I think the embodied autonomy from the impure reason or the embodied reason, whose foundations are in the experiences of welfare as psychophysical beings and from which emerge various metaphoric schemes of morality. Thirdly, I propose the beginning of autonomy modulated by the principles of integrity, dignity, and vulnerability. In fourth place, I raise the embodied autonomy from an ethos of the finitude and the vulnerability. Finally, I sketch some ideas on what it would be an embodied ethics.
