The Social Recognition of Human Dignity
Journal international de bioéthique = International journal of bioethics 2010 Sep; 21(3): 45-9, 88
This paper argues that the notion of human dignity has to do with a social status, whose recognition and respect are owed by society. Therefore, those who violate human dignity violate a social reality. This means that human dignity does not need any philosophical or theological foundation. Instead, it can be understandably demonstrated by exploring the structure of the social world.
