A taxonomy of dignity: a grounded theory study
Respect has great importance in everyday life. As children we are taught one hopes to respect our parents, teachers, and elders, school rules and traffic laws, family and cultural traditions, other people's feelings and rights, our country's flag and leaders, the truth and people's differing opinions. And we come to value respect for such things; when we're older, we may shake our heads or fists at people who seem not to have learned to respect them. We develop great respect for people we consider exemplary and lose respect for those we discover to be clay-footed, and so we may try to respect only those who are truly worthy of our respect. We may also come to believe that, at some level, all people are worthy of respect. And it is widely acknowledged that public debates about such demands should take place under terms of mutual respect.

Metrics details. This paper has its origins in Jonathan Mann's insight that the experience of dignity may explain the reciprocal relationships between health and human rights. It follows his call for a taxonomy of dignity: "a coherent vocabulary and framework to characterize dignity.
Dignity is the right of a person to be valued and respected for their own sake, and to be treated ethically. It is of significance in morality , ethics , law and politics as an extension of the Enlightenment -era concepts of inherent, inalienable rights. The term may also be used to describe personal conduct, as in "behaving with dignity". English-speakers often use the word "dignity" in prescriptive and cautionary ways: for example, in politics it can be used to critique the treatment of oppressed and vulnerable groups and peoples, but it has also been applied to cultures and sub-cultures , to religious beliefs and ideals, and even to animals used for food or research. In general, the term has various functions and meanings depending on how the term is used and on the context.
This paper has its origins in Jonathan Mann's insight that the experience of dignity may explain the reciprocal relationships between health and human rights. It follows his call for a taxonomy of dignity: "a coherent vocabulary and framework to characterize dignity.
