Book Description

This is the first anthology to bring together a selection of the most important contemporary philosophical essays on the nature and moral significance of self-respect. Representing a diversity of views, the essays illustrate the complexity of self-respect and explore its connections to such topics as personhood, dignity, rights, character, autonomy, integrity, identity, shame, justice, oppression and empowerment. The book demonstrates that self-respect is a formidable concern which goes to the very heart of both moral theory and moral life.

Reviews

"This collection consists of fourteen essays, a long introduction, and a useful bibliography. All of these essays have appeared previously-either in philosophy journals or as book chapters-over the last thirty years." -- Review of Metaphysics, June 1997
