Résumé

This paper accepts the proposition that old people want to be treated with dignity
and that statements about dignity point to ethical duties that, if not independent
of rights, at least enhance rights in ethically important ways. In contexts of policy
and law, dignity can certainly have a substantive as well as rhetorical function.
However, the paper questions whether the concept of dignity can provide
practical guidance for choosing among alternative approaches to the care of old
people. The paper explores the paradoxical relationship between the apparent
lack of specific content in many conceptions of dignity and the broad utility that
dignity appears to have as a concept expressive of shared social understandings
about the status of old people
