The most substantial work has been done by Immanuel Kant.He stated that every individual deserves respect because he is an end in himself.
Respect means a lot of different things for different people.
It includes taking someone’s feelings, needs, thoughts, ideas, wishes and preferences into consideration.
Changing values Nowadays it seems much more possible- to survive without being respected.
Someone could, for example, inherit a large sum of money, have many servants and employees and have salesmen constantly calling on him and catering to him, yet not be respected in the least.
