Abstract

“Human dignity” has been enshrined in international agreements and national constitutions as a fundamental human right. But it is a term that is intuitively grasped but never clearly defined. In this book, Michael Barilan offers a conceptual clarification of human dignity and human rights, relating these ideas to current issues in ethics, law, and bioethics. Luke McDonagh admires the author’s sincere and thoughtful approach.
