On the Care of Human Dignity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since the middle of the last century, a diverse set of theologians, humanitarians and ethicists have enshrined human dignity as the defining object of care and concern. Despite differences in scale, duration, and scope, these actors took up the common challenge of constituting responses to a demand for a mode and form of power calibrated to human dignity. In each case, human dignity was formulated as a uniquely worthwhile object of concern; and in each case, the problem was how to design an art of caring for such a worthwhile object. Significantly, this work was not uniquely philosophical. Rather, it consisted in confronting the more difficult challenge of inventing institutions capable of facilitating the care of human dignity. Focusing on three exemplary venues - the Vatican, the United Nations, and the U.S. President’s Council on Bioethics - this paper analyzes the ways in which human dignity became integral to contemporary conceptions and practices of care and shows and how relatively stable apparatuses connected to human dignity have recently been unsettled by efforts in bioethics to extend and refigure this key notion.
