European scholars of philosophy outline and critically discuss the notion of respect in ancient, modern, and contemporary times. Among their topics are the notion of respect in ancient Greek poetry, Plato on respect and what "belongs to" oneself, human interaction in the state of nature: Hobbes on respect for persons and self-respect, the extend to which the view of respect as the foundation of human rights can be attributed to Kant, and the cardinal role of respect and self-respect for Rawls' and Walzer's theories of justice.
