BOOK REVIEW ESSAY:
On the Relatively Recent Rise of Human Dignity
Jeffrey Flynn, Fordham University
EXERPT—Dignity, or at least the word, is everywhere today. Consider two noteworthy appearances in 2015: on June 13, Médicins Sans Frontières (MSF) launched the Dignity I, a boat that would contribute to their search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea (MSF 2015). Two weeks later, on June 27, The New York Times headline read, quoting Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges,“‘Equal Dignity,’ 5–4 Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide” (New York Times 2015).
