Roots of Respect : A Historic-philosophical Itinerary (Hardcover)
About this item
“Respect for persons” has recently gained interest among political philosophers, human-rights thinkers, social and ethical theorists. Yet, a comprehensive treatment from a historical-philosophical perspective is conspicuously absent.Roots of Respect bridges the gap; the authors delineate seminal passages in the history of philosophy and spread out the rich array of conceptual specifications which “respect” acquired across the centuries.
