Abstract [en]

This study presents findings from an ontological and contextual determination of the concept of dignity. Thestudy had a caritative and caring science perspective and a hermeneutical design. The aim of this studywas to increase caring science knowledge of dignity and to gain a determination of dignity as a concept.Eriksson’s model for conceptual determination is made up of five part-studies. The ontological and contex-tual determination indicates that dignity can be understood as absolute dignity, the spiritual dimension char-acterized by responsibility, freedom, duty, and service, and relative dignity, characterized by the bodily,external aesthetic dimension and the psychical, inner ethical dimension. Dignity exists in human beings bothas absolute and relative dignity.
