Javier Gomá in conversation with Daniel Dombey

The philosophy of dignity

Venue: Campus de Santa Cruz la Real, IE University, Aula Magna

Dignity is a concept that is used without definition. However, philosopher and essayist Javier Gomá observes that it has been the most transformative and revolutionary philosophical concept of the 20th century. Since 2003, Gomá has juggled his role as Director of the Juan March Foundation with a remarkable production of essays, and in 2004 he won the National Essay Award for his first work, Imitation and Experience. He has also written plays. His most recent book is entitled Dignidad (‘Dignity’), a topic he discusses with Daniel Dombey, Bureau Chief of the Financial Times.
