EVENT: IALS Lunchtime Seminar: Dignities, Jurisprudences and Jurisdictions

Posted January 8th, 2014 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘This paper considers a number of ways of thinking about the concerns of dignity from within the traditions of jurisprudence rather than political theory or moral philosophy. It does so by treating questions of dignity at least in part as matters of jurisdictional arrangement. The reasons for doing so here are twofold. First it allows for the treatment of the jurisprudence of dignity as a distinct historical practice and second it draws out the sense that jurisprudences of dignity themselves recommend training on conduct. In this paper I examine an array of approaches to questions of dignity in relation to the care of the dying and the dead. I focus in particular on the work of Ronald Dworkin.’
