OWT 8: Human Dignity (engl.)
Discourses on Universality and Inalienability
Can human dignity, which is of crucial importance in Christian anthropology, claim universal validity beyond the Christian cultural area?
In this volume the diverse aspects of “Human Dignity” are analysed by theologians and scholars from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. The authors focus on subjects like “Anthropological Remarks on Human Dignity”, “Roots of Human Dignity in the Specific Context”, “History of Human Rights in the Specific Context”, “Violation of Human Dignity as a Foundational Basis for the Postulation of Human Dignity” and “Universality of Human Dignity”.
