A Legal-philosophical Examination of Normative Theories of Discrimination Centered on the Respect as an Individual
Keyword
Summary
In this research, I will consider from the perspective of legal philosophy whether we can construct normative theories of discrimination based on the respect as an individual.
I will examine the defensibility of some theories which base the moral wrongness of discrimination upon the infringement of the individual's freedom, autonomy or dignity. Then, I will try to explain the moral wrongness of both discrimination against historically disadvantaged groups and discrimination against other groups in an integrated way.

Message

I am very grateful for the grant for this research. I would like to provide a new perspective on the urgent issues of modern society without being bound by existing values.
