The paper deals with Suzy Killmister’s approach to the concept of human dignity. The author analyzes her view and argues that the concept offered by her is relativistic to the degree in which the idea of universal human rights is susceptible to collapse, even though she seems to wish to uphold it. The author points to several problems in Killmister’s theory and concludes that, besides its inspiring nature, there is not a safe enough ground for its endorsement.
