Keywords: Human Dignity, Human Rights, Constitutionalism, Relational Theory, History of Ideas.

The articles here collected focus, in the context of such a complex topic, on only three specific aspects: the legal one, linked to constitutionalism; the philosophical one, in connection with some contemporary considerations on human relationality; a third one, concerning history of ideas, developed through a re-reading of Étienne de La Boétie's Discourse on Voluntary Servitude, stressing the capital role played by uniqueness. The common denominator of these different aspects is the idea that human dignity, precisely as ground of human rights, cannot be claimed in any abstract way, because it essentially needs "concretization" through the specific uniqueness of singular human beings.
