Dignity in the Legal and Political Philosophy of Ronald Dworkin, Hardback Book


Well-known for his contribution to the juristic world, Professor Ronald Dworkin was an outstanding legal philosopher of his generation.

This volume celebrates the thoughts of Ronald Dworkin on dignity.

The contributors have critically engaged with different perspectives of Dworkin's thoughts on dignity.

The aim is to shed light on juridical and moral contemporary conundrums such as the role of dignity in constitutional contexts in India, and the understanding ofdignity as either a foundation of human rights or as a supra value that illuminates other values and rights. The volume is divided into four parts. The first part 'Integrity, Values, Interpretation, and Objectivity' focuses on Dworkin's interpretive methodology and examines the way his value holism relies on his interpretative methodology.

The second part 'Dignity, Responsibility, and Free Will' concentrates on elucidating the complex relationship between dignity, human will, and responsibility in Dworkin's moral, legal, and political philosophy.

In the third part 'Freedom of Speech, Right to Privacy,and Rights', the authors use Dworkin's philosophical moral framework and the interpretative methodology to shed light on his own views on freedom of speech and the language of rights, including human rights.

The fourth part 'Dignity, Constitutions, and Legal Systems' critically discusses Dworkin'sinterpretative methodology to understand dignity in the context of constitutions, state, and law beyond the state.

With contributions from eminent scholars across the world, the present volume will help in disseminating Dworkin's rich jurisprudential thoughts.
