This paper forms part of a wider study of the emerging significance of the idea and ideal of dignity within which observations made here will be rehearsed in greater detail, not only in terms of philosophy and sociology but also with regard to the competing discourses of modern public life. Within the confines of this discussion, the case of just one philosophical contribution is featured as having raised the stakes for any critical analysis of dignity.
