Self‐respect and the Respect of Others (pages 17-40)

Abstract: This paper examines the claim that agents' self‐respect depends on receiving appropriate respect from others. It concentrates on a particular version of the claim defended by Avishai Margalit. The paper argues that Margalit's arguments fail to explain why the rival stoic view, that agents ultimately retain responsibility for their own self‐respect, is incorrect.
