Course Content (Syllabus)
The notion of dignity enjoyed huge popularity after the end of WWII and now is regarded as a moral and constitutional value that is central to every liberal democracy.However, there are philosophical disagreements concerning its understanding, given its long history and its application in completely different contexts. In this seminar we follow the historical development of the term from Roman dignitas to Immanuel Kant, we discuss contemporary philosophical approaches to it (Waldron, Kateb) as well as its role in constitutional law and bioethics.
