Abstract

This paper is an attempt to show the point of connection between human dignity and human rights, by clarifying the concept of human rights and conceptualizing what is called ‘human dignity’ through the concept of the value of the human being. It also distinguishes the concept of human dignity from other concepts with which it is often confused in daily life, such as honor and pride – a confusion that leads to the assumption that there are different conceptions of human dignity in different cultures – and points to some other implications that these concepts, thus defined, bear for the protection of human rights.

Keywords:
Human dignity
Honor
Human rights
Pride
Resumen

En este artículo se intenta indicar el punto de correlación entre la dignidad humana y los derechos humanos, aclarando el concepto de derechos humanos y conceptualizando lo que se llama ‘dignidad humana’ mediante el concepto del valor del ser humano. También se distingue el concepto de dignidad humana respecto a otros conceptos con los cuales está muchas veces confundido en la vida común, como son el honor y el orgullo. Esta confusión lleva a suponer que hay diferentes concepciones de los derechos humanos en las diferentes culturas. Se mencionan otras implicaciones que estos conceptos, así definidos, presentan para la protección de los derechos humanos.

Palabras clave:
Dignidad humana
Derechos humanos
Honor
Orgullo
