Human dignity, self-respect, and dependency


Schaber, Peter (2011). Human dignity, self-respect, and dependency. In: Kaufmann, P; Kuch, H; Neuhaeuser, C; Webster, E. Huminlitation, Degradation, Dehumanization. Dordrecht Heidelberg London New York: Springer-Verlag, 151-158.

Abstract

The paper deals with the question of whether poverty as such violates the dignity of persons. It is argued that it does. This is, it is argued, not due to a lack of basic goods, nor to the fact that poverty prevents persons from enjoying the rights they have, particularly the right to bodily integrity. Poverty does violate dignity, so it is argued, insofar as poor people are dependent on others in a degrading way.
