Keywords: Human Dignity; Constitution; Freedom and Obligations.
The article analyzes the different legal and constitutional meanings encompassed by the concept of dignity. The main argument presented in the paper is the belief that - working mainly within the boundary of values - the concept of dignity generally accepted allows to specify the contours of rules and principles laid down in the legal order. Reasoning on the combined principles of personality and pluralism - as well as on a larger number of constitutional rules - the paper suggests a definition of dignity based on a dynamic and adaptive approach. It also highlights the presence of a «gray area» where the most problematic definitional issues are located. The various meanings of dignity enclosed in this space reveal their fundamental differences but also their conformity to constitutional standards.
