The aim of this essay is to describe the unusual way in which legal provisions addressed to protect human dignity are restored and re-affirmed after they have been violated. While on the one hand rights in general become positively relevant only when they are denied, de jure or de facto, on the other hand, in the special case of human dignity, this slight logical recursiveness and impurity turns into an insoluble doubt, a true aporia. The author’s view is that dignity cannot be a fully-fledged subjective right per se, since a clear-cut distinction between its assertion and its denial cannot be drawn in practice, such that every step in the analysis of this notion will be a further step toward extreme aporetic outcomes.
