Dignity, Diversity, Anarchy

Proceedings of the Special Workshops “Human Dignity in Europe” and “The Anarchist Critique of the State, the Law and Authority” held at the 29th World Congress of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (IVR) in Lucerne, 2019

The contributions in this volume add innovative insights to the debate on domination, power, dignity and the future of society. Problems of heteronomy are fundamental to the anarchist critique of the principle of domination and at the same time central for the discussion of the concept of human dignity. The debates on dignity and diversity and on anarchist perspectives of domination-free organisation are particularly relevant in view of the softening of traditional power structures and the emergence of new ones, especially in the age of globalisation on the one hand and the resurgence of nationalist concepts on the other hand.
