Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This essay provides a phenomenological defense of dignity and a critique of new ideas of tolerance in tension with that understanding. It defends dignity as an essential property of human beings, and also shows how it can be recognized existentially, both negatively (by its violation) and positively (by loving affirmation).
