44 Isr. L. Rev. 9 (2011)
The concept of dignity I discuss has two main historical sources: the religious, biblical idea of humanity’s resemblance to God, and the philosophical, Kantian view of human autonomy. I offer an interpretation of the two sources that highlights a common ground, and then point to some aberrations that may result from confounding theological or metaphysical issues with the concept of dignity and its normative implications.
