TO BE HUMAN IS TO BE FREE: A PROTESTANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE DISCOURSE ON HUMAN DIGNITY

Willem Fourie

Abstract



In this article Wolfgang Huber�s work on freedom is used to reflect on human dignity from
a Protestant perspective. It is argued that the close connection between freedom and human
dignity in Huber�s work allows for a meaningful construction and that it can contribute to
the discourse on human dignity in the context of South Africa�s secularity and (religious)
pluralism.
