Tension Between:
RESPECTING DIGNITY OF OTHERS and FEELING COMPASSION FOR OTHERS

Dignity
 

Primary obligation to others is to honor their dignity; compassion first expressed as recognition of dignity. (Maximize respect for autonomy, minimize pity and charity)

 

 

Compassion
 

Primary obligation to others is compassion; dignity first recognized in others as their worthiness of aid. (Maximize aid and generosity, minimize respect for autonomy)
