    Abstract

    I respond to Hörnle and Kremnitzer via a brief review of the development of our modern concept of human dignity, in which I take issue with their account of human dignity as non-humiliation, preferring instead the language of non-degradation. In addition, I offer a different account of the role of human dignity in criminal law, not as a criminally protected interest but as a foundational value.
