Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] After recalling some paradigmatic conceptions of human dignity (Pico, Kant, Rosmini), the essay highlights two basic lines of the problematization of the dignity of the person in the contemporary age: libertarianism at Sartre, on the one hand, and on the other the most recent attempt to assert - with Derek Parfit and Robert Singer - that not all men are people. The difficulties in both positions are shown and in conclusion the reasonableness of Robert Spaemann's thesis (all men are persons) and the arguments put forward in support of it are underlined
