Respect: How Do We Get There?

A Philosophical Inquiry

Edited by: Eva Marsal, Barbara Weber, Susan T. Gardner

What precisely do we mean by respect? How should we adjudicate between conflicting demands of respect (e.g., respect for self vs. others, respect for humans vs. the environment, etc.)? What obstacles stand in the way of respect? The papers contained in this international anthology were presented at the North American Association of the Community of Inquiry (NAACI) conference in Vancouver, Canada, in June 2012, and were the outcome of in-depth and interdisciplinary discussions around the various aspects of respect. The book is an exacting and exciting analysis of the notion of respect - an analysis that has the potential to have lasting and extensive practical consequences.
