Description

Grounds for Respect broaches a question that is of vital importance to all; namely, what grounds do we need in order to justify respect for others? In exploring this question the author provides not only a critical overview of traditional and contemporary approaches to - and critiques of - the concept of a common humanity, but also offers a distinctively new approach as to what it might mean to be human.show more
