1 Dignity - Donna Hicks & Desmond Tutu
Auteur : Donna Hicks & Desmond Tutu
Genre : Psychologie
The desire for dignity is universal and powerful. It is a motivating force behind all human interaction—in families, in communities, in the business world, and in relationships at the international level. When dignity is violated, the response is likely to involve aggression, even violence, hatred, and vengeance. On the other hand, when people treat one another with dignity, they become more connected and are able to create more meaningful relationships. Surprisingly, most people have little understanding of dignity, observes Donna Hicks in this important book. She examines the reasons for this gap and offers a new set of strategies for becoming aware of dignity's vital role in our lives and learning to put dignity into practice in everyday life.

Drawing on her extensive experience in international conflict resolution and on insights from evolutionary biology, psychology, an

3 Identity - Francis Fukuyama
Auteur : Francis Fukuyama
Genre : Science politique
The New York Times bestselling author of The Origins of Political Order offers a provocative examination of modern identity politics: its origins, its effects, and what it means for domestic and international affairs of state

In 2014, Francis Fukuyama wrote that American institutions were in decay, as the state was progressively captured by powerful interest groups. Two years later, his predictions were borne out by the rise to power of a series of political outsiders whose economic nationalism and authoritarian tendencies threatened to destabilize the entire international order. These populist nationalists seek direct charismatic connection to “the people,” who are usually defined in narrow identity terms that offer an irresistible call to an in-group and exclude large parts of the population as a whole.

4 The Affirmation of Genuine Human Dignity (Essay) - Journal of Markets & Morality
Auteur : Journal of Markets & Morality
Genre : Entreprise et management
Catholic theology has always had to address the question of the human person's status within creation. Scripture itself makes unavoidable serious reflection on this problem. The opening chapter of Genesis, for instance, relates that man was created "in God's image" and that upon his creation God saw that all of creation was "very good." The prologue to the Gospel of John further reveals that while creation occurred through God's eternal Word, the Word also "became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth." Taking its bearings from such scriptural statements, Catholic theology traditionally has described the human person's place in creation, using terms borrowed from the broader context of Catholic cosmology. To understand the human person, one must first view him in relation to God and only then in relation to the rest of creation. Such a comparison reveals that the human person

8 Dignity - Remy Debes
Auteur : Remy Debes
Genre : Philosophie
In everything from philosophical ethics to legal argument to public activism, it has become commonplace to appeal to the idea of human dignity. In such contexts, the concept of dignity typically signifies something like the fundamental moral status belonging to all humans. Remarkably, however, it is only in the last century that this meaning of the term has become standardized. Before this, dignity was instead a concept associated with social status. Unfortunately, this transformation remains something of a mystery in existing scholarship. Exactly when and why did "dignity" change its meaning? And before this change, was it truly the case that we lacked a conception of human worth akin to the one that "dignity" now represents? In this volume, leading scholars across a range of disciplines attempt to answer such questions by clarifying the presently murky history of "d

And keeps wanting to get better with impressions. Think about the blind side of you That takes the wrong as right in the matter of Achieving an end prompted by gullible zealousness And painted by fallacies not fallacies at work. Think about the reasonable part of you That understands the light in every action and inaction That feels the need to stop and just go on That feels guilty of smearing dignity in demeaning colours

Auteur : Ken Layne
Genre : Romans et littérature
A packet of hand-scrawled letters found in a stranger's rucksack tells of self-sufficient communities growing from the ruins of California's housing collapse and the global recession. In unfinished Mojave Desert housing tracts and foreclosure ghost towns on the raw edges of the chaotic cities of the West, people have gathered to grow their own food, school their own children and learn how to live without the poisons of gossip, greed, television, mobile phones and the Internet. Encouraged by an enigmatic wanderer known only as "B," the communities thrive as more families and workers are discarded by an indifferent system. But this quiet revolution and its simple rituals cannot stay unnoticed for long, because the teachings of "B" threaten an entire structure of power and wealth dependent upon people toiling their lives away to buy things they don't need.

From one of our wisest and most influential economic thinkers, the only person to serve as Director of the National Economic Council under two Presidents, a profound big-picture vision of why the promotion of dignity should be the singular end goal by which we chart America's economic future

When Gene Sperling was in charge of coordinating the shaping and execution of the US government's economic policy in the Obama White House, he found himself surprised and dismayed when serious people in Washington worried out loud to him that the Obama focus on health care was a distraction because it was "not focused on the economy." How, he asked, was millions of Americans' fear that they were a single pink slip or a loved one's serious illness away from financial ruin somehow not considered an economic issue? To him, it was just one more example of a more profound truth he witne

17 The Dignity of Living - J. Krishnamurti
Auteur : J. Krishnamurti
Genre : Philosophie
Is it possible to live without conflict? Perhaps this is a theoretical question, but it challenges the mind that is trained to accept conflict as a natural part of living. Ultimately, as Krishnamurti explains, the critical importance of that challenge is not to answer yes or no to the possibility of a life without conflict: 

When you approach a problem, you start with the fact that there is conflict, and you begin to inquire whether it is possible to end it, neither accepting that it can be ended nor asserting that it cannot be ended. Your mind is then in a position to look at the fact; and that is what we must establish between us.

22 A Right to Life before Birth. Human Dignity in Biolaw - The Broken Promise? - Stefan Kirchner
Auteur : Stefan Kirchner
Genre : Droit
Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Jura - Rechtsphilosophie, Rechtssoziologie, Rechtsgeschichte, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The question if unborn children have a right to life is among the most hotly contested political issues in many countries. At the same time is the notion that every human being has some inalienable human rights and an inherent human dignity almost universally accepted. While the question of the right to life of the unborn child can also be dealt with as a legal, rather than a political, problem, the widespread legal availability of abortion also in states which emphasize the importance of human dignity as a legal concept, exposes a disconnection between national and international biolegal claims and the implementation of biolaw on the national level.

24 Technicians of Human Dignity - Gaymon Bennett
Auteur : Gaymon Bennett
Genre : Politique et actualité
Technicians of Human Dignity traces the extraordinary rise of human dignity as a defining concern of religious, political, and bioethical institutions over the last half century and offers original insight into how human dignity has become threatened by its own success. The global expansion of dignitarian politics has left dignity without a stable set of meanings or referents, unsettling contemporary economies of life and power.Engaging anthropology, theology, and bioethics, Bennett grapples with contemporary efforts to mobilize human dignity as a counter-response to the biopolitics of the human body, and the breakdowns this has generated. To do this, he investigates how actors in pivotal institutions -the Vatican, the United Nations, U.S. Federal Bioethics-reconceived human dignity as the bearer of intrinsic worth, only to become frustrated by the Sisyphean struggle of turning its conce

27 Promoting the Dignity of Patients in Perioperative Practice (Clinical Feature) (Report) - Journal of Perioperative Practice
Auteur : Journal of Perioperative Practice
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Reeves et al (2002) found that being treated with dignity and respect was one of the most important priorities for patients. Other studies have indicated that patients who perceive they are treated with respect and dignity are happier with their overall hospital experience (Joffe et al 2003) and are more satisfied with their care (Beach et al 2005). In recent years, UK health policy has increasingly recognised that the quality of patients' experiences is important. In 2006, the Department of Health (DH) launched a Dignity in Care campaign (DH 2006a) which remains ongoing and is aimed at all health and social care organisations. The campaign included the 'Dignity Challenge' (see Box 1) which is as applicable to perioperative care settings as anywhere else.

30 Underprivileged School Children and the Assault on Dignity - Julia Hall
Auteur : Julia Hall
Genre : Éducation
Every day, children living in low-income communities have no choice but to grow up in a climate where they experience multiple unending assaults to their sense of dignity. This volume applies theoretical and historical insights to think through the increasingly undignified realities of life in economically marginalized communities. It includes examples of curricular challenges that low-income students in the US confront today while attempting to learn. Curricular challenges are analyzed as material texts that emerge out of student lived experiences in the economically disposed neighborhoods in which schools are located, and the dynamics of the schools and classrooms themselves. Attention is also paid to educators and students who push back against these forces in an effort to reclaim voice, identity and dignity.

31 It’s Time to Implement the Forgotten Constitution of India for Liberty and Dignity - KC Agrawal & Anjuna Agrawal Singh
Auteur : KC Agrawal & Anjuna Agrawal Singh
Genre : Droit
The highly regressive and continually deteriorating plight of our large populace is no secret. More than 100 crore of India's population exists under highly impoverished and wretched conditions. Forty percent of our country is infected with Maoism, Naxalism, Terrorism and Seditious activism. Consistent failures of our Legislature and Executive are no more acceptable. The basic objectives of our Constitution, ‘economic freedom’, ‘dignity’, ‘equal status and opportunity’ and ‘fraternity’ must now be fulfilled.
According to Agrawal this can be accomplished only by a responsible and accountable system of governance. According to him good governance is like a good mother who works hard for her living and rearing her children. The children also cling to her in affection because they know their mother was doing her best to taking care of them. The book attempts to find out

Auteur : Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy

"We agree on these rights," Jacques Maritain once stated, "provid[ed] we are not asked why." (1) He was referring to his work on the 1946 UNESCO Committee on the Theoretical Bases of Human Rights, but he might just as well have been referring to the American intellectual community today: We all agree that there is such a thing as human dignity (who would oppose it?), just so long as we do not have to say why. The "why" of human rights, however, is vitally important. For example, if human rights are widely said to follow from human dignity, then the contours of those rights must depend on the contours of that dignity. Change the basis or the scope of human dignity and the rights, so to speak, go all wrong. This article compares two human rights declarations, one that was unable to state an explicit basis for either rights or dignity, the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Righ

The idea of human dignity is central to any reflection on the nature of human worth, and has become a key concept in international and national law, in medical ethics, and in much philosophical and political theory. However, the idea is a complex one that also takes on many different forms. This collection explores the idea of human dignity as it arises within these many different domains, opening up the possibility of a multidisciplinary conversation that illuminates the concept itself, as well as the idea of the human to which it stands in an essential relation. The book is not only an intriguing and stimulating exploration of human dignity from a range of perspectives, but also provides an important resource for those who wish to take the exploration further.

36 Between Dignity and Despair - Marion A. Kaplan
Auteur : Marion A. Kaplan
Genre : Histoire
Between Dignity and Despair draws on the extraordinary memoirs, diaries, interviews, and letters of Jewish women and men to give us the first intimate portrait of Jewish life in Nazi Germany. Kaplan tells the story of Jews in Germany not from the hindsight of the Holocaust, nor by focusing on the persecutors, but from the bewildered and ambiguous perspective of Jews trying to navigate their daily lives in a world that was becoming more and more insane. Answering the charge that Jews should have left earlier, Kaplan shows that far from seeming inevitable, the Holocaust was impossible to foresee precisely because Nazi repression occurred in irregular and unpredictable steps until the massive violence of Novemer 1938. Then the flow of emigration turned into a torrent, only to be stopped by the war. By that time Jews had been evicted from their homes, robbed of their possessions and their l

37 Human Dignity - Peter Bieri & Diana Siclovan
Auteur : Peter Bieri & Diana Siclovan
Genre : Philosophie
Dignity is humanity's most prized possession. We experience the loss of dignity as a terrible humiliation: when we lose our dignity we feel deprived of something without which life no longer seems worth living. But what exactly is this trait that we value so highly?

In this important new book, distinguished philosopher Peter Bieri looks afresh at the notion of human dignity. In contrast to most traditional views, he argues that dignity is not an innate quality of human beings or a right that we possess by virtue of being human. Rather, dignity is a certain way to lead one's life. It is a pattern of thought, experience and action – in other words, a way of living.

In Bieri's account, there are three key dimensions to dignity as a way of living. The first is the way I am treated by others: they can treat me in a way that leaves my dignity intact or they can destr

41 Human Dignity in Classical Chinese Philosophy - Qianfan Zhang
Auteur : Qianfan Zhang
Genre : Philosophie
This book reinterprets classical Chinese philosophical tradition along the conceptual line of human dignity. Through extensive textual evidence, it illustrates that classical Confucianism, Mohism, and Daoism contained rich notions of dignity, which laid the foundation for human rights and political liberty in China, even though, historically, liberal democracy failed to grow out of the authoritarian soil in China. The book critically examines the causes that might have prevented the classical schools from developing a liberal tradition, while affirming their positive contributions to the human dignity concept. 
Analysing the inadequacies of the western concept of human dignity, the text covers relevant teachings of Kongzi, Mengzi, Xunzi, Mozi, Laozi, and Zhuangzi (in comparison with Rousseau). While the Confucian notions of humanity (Ren), righteousness (Yi), and gentleman (Jun

While seeming to simultaneously channel a combination of Benjamin Franklin and Charles Schulz, Dr. Minson goes after bodily changes, behaviors—good and bad, and what everyone can do to make life more bearable and—dare we say it—fun after fifty. Laced with his unique style of poignancy and humor and peppered with his own surrealistically funny cartoons, the book bravely takes on health, finances, sex, diet, exercise, death, the law, and what you can do to protect what matters most as you age. It’s life, liberty, and the pursuit of a chuc

45 Does Technology Spell Trouble with a Capital "T"? Human Dignity and Public Policy. - Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy
Auteur : Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy
Genre : Droit
In recent years, human dignity has attracted considerable attention as a policy standard. From bioethics and constitutional law to torts and the regulation of the Internet, human dignity has seemingly become the most salient touchstone for assessing current policy initiatives Yet dignity is a slippery concept, as illustrated by the opening scene of the movie Singin in the Rain. (1) Set at the premiere of a Monumental Pictures hit, the stars arrive in limousines and walk down a red carpet into the theater. While adoring fans "ooh" and "aah," the screen celebrities grant brief interviews to a prominent gossip columnist. Don Lockwood, played by Gene Kelly, is asked to explain how he became a star. Lockwood responds with a speech in which he claims that he has always lived by a simple motto: "Dignity, Always Dignity." Lockwood then recounts episodes from his "privileged" upbringing, while th

48 Fictions of Dignity - Elizabeth S. Anker
Auteur : Elizabeth S. Anker
Genre : Critique littéraire
Over the past fifty years, debates about human rights have assumed an increasingly prominent place in postcolonial literature and theory. Writers from Salman Rushdie to Nawal El Saadawi have used the novel to explore both the possibilities and challenges of enacting and protecting human rights, particularly in the Global South. In Fictions of Dignity, Elizabeth S. Anker shows how the dual enabling fictions of human dignity and bodily integrity contribute to an anxiety about the body that helps to explain many of the contemporary and historical failures of human rights, revealing why and how lives are excluded from human rights protections along the lines of race, gender, class, disability, and species membership. In the process, Anker examines the vital work performed by a particular kind of narrative imagination in fostering respect for human rights. Drawing on phenomenology, Ank

49 The Dignity Revolution - Daniel Darling
Auteur : Daniel Darling
Genre : Christianisme
As Christians, we want to make a difference in this world. We want to have an impact not only on our immediate family and community, but on wider social issues. We want to protect the vulnerable and engage with the issues that really matter. But how?

This book shows us how wonderful, liberating and empowering it is to be made in God’s image. It will change how we see ourselves and other people.  

Some will feel the call to run for office… others will roll up their sleeves and join the good work of non-profit ministry… and others might simply find little ways to incorporate this vision of human dignity into their everyday lives, and change their community one word, one action, one person at a time.

Dan Darling shows us that each one of us can be, and are called to be, part of this new movement—a human dignity revolution that our societies d

50 Of Greater Dignity than Riches - Farhan Karim
Auteur : Farhan Karim
Genre : Art et architecture
Extreme poverty, which intensified in India during colonial rule, peaked in the 1920s—after decades of imperialist exploitation, famine, and disease—a time when architects, engineers, and city authorities proposed a new type of housing for India’s urban poor and industrial workers. As Farhan Karim argues, economic scarcity became a central inspiration for architectural modernism in the subcontinent. 


   As India moved from colonial rule to independence, the Indian government, business entities, international NGOs, and intergovernmental agencies took major initiatives to modernize housing conditions and the domestic environment of the state’s low-income population. Of Greater Dignity than Riches traces multiple international origins of austerity as an essential ingredient of postcolonial development. By prescribing m
