Dignity as the Foundation for an Ethical-Juridical Inter-specific Discourse? - The essay is inspired by a recent book on Kant’s philosophy of right. It deals firstly with the philosophical-juridical problem of punishment and the thematic of man’s duties towards nature. A central space is dedicated to the thematic of human dignity, whose bio-ethical and bio-juridical declination offers a starting point for a more extended discourse on that concept. The author aims at articulating a broader meaning of the concept of dignity that, in accordance with Kant, can be developed into an inter-specific perspective and as such become a guiding principle of (our) relationships with animals and nature as a whole.
