Kristen Hessler (University at Albany) signe un compte rendu du livre Human Dignity and Human Rights, de Pablo Gilabert dans Notre Dame Philosophical.
« Gilabert does an admirable job of defending the idea of human dignity as an important idea in human rights practice, and in making the case that philosophers should pay more attention to it. He carefully documents the prominent references to human dignity in the United Nations Charter and the International Bill of Human Rights (comprised by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UCHR), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and the International Covenant on Social, Cultural, and Economic Rights (ICESCR)). From this starting point, he builds an account of human dignity that he regards as a « deliberative interpretive proposal, » which he describes as a kind of midway point between a mere description of the idea found in the practice, and a stipulation regarding what that idea ought to be (118). »
