    Oxford University Press Dignity in the Legal and Political Philosophy of Ronald Dworkin by View larger Edited by Salman Khurshid & Lokendra Malik and Veronica Rodriguez-Blanco

    Ronald Dworkin (1931–2013), an American legal philosopher, jurist, and scholar, was a stalwart advocate of human rights and dignity who developed a formidable scholarly combination of law and moral integrity. He propounded some of the most influential theories of law and morality in modern jurisprudence. 
    This volume explores his thoughts on dignity where self-respect and authenticity play a key role. It also sheds light on contemporary judicial and moral conundrums, such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the complex relationship between dignity, human will, and responsibility. The book, with contributions from eminent philosophers and thinkers from across the world, provides a detailed analysis of Dworkin’s work on dignity. Each essay in the volume interprets his rich jurisprudential work, and motivates legal philosophers, practitioners, and judges to understand, practise, and disseminate Dworkin’s jurisprudential thoughts.
