10 hours of video material and 100 hours of audio material that Evelin Lindner collected in Somaliland in 1998 (the film was produced in 2000), in Kenya, and Rwanda/Burundi in 1999, for her doctoral thesis (University of Oslo, Department of Psychology, submitted 31st October 2000, ISBN 82-569-1817-9).

I am not interested in building a personal "career," or get "tenure" anywhere (except that I consider myself to be initiator of and a professor at our World Dignity University, see my invitation), or publishing as many articles as possible, or defending a "turf," or "making money" - I live almost without possessions and money, and would need only marginally more funds in order to not be caught in humiliating situations (for example, I would like to pay resonsibly for a health insurance for myself, or, be able to take a taxi when I am tired instead of the bus, just to list a few examples).

If historical times were less critical, I would indulge in building my identity as an artist and designer (most of my work is lost, very little is preserved, see some drawings made in Egypt, or a mural in Hamburg, or my design of alternative ways of sitting - see the Office Cockpit project).

In contrast, religions are the cultural mechanisms that can provide rituals and beliefs to aid this process.

Applying the methods of the so-called hard sciences to human affairs, the rationalists demonstrated (to their satisfaction) that there was no epistemological stance from which to derive natural law or moral principle.

There are many variations of this conceptualisation, at its core the view that while different phenomena are not the same, they are inseparable, or that there is no hard line between them.Also Hassan Keynan is a Member of the Human DHS Global Advisory Board. 40,000 people from more than 180 countries read our website per year.Life & Work It is my life-project to build Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies (Human DHS) as a global fellowship of concerned academics and practitioners. The vision for our network is to serve as a global enabling platform, giving space and encouragement to people who wish to dignify our world and transcend humiliation.We wish to stimulate systemic change, globally and locally, to open space for equality in dignity and mutual respect and esteem to take root and grow, thus ending humiliating practices and breaking cycles of humiliation throughout the world.We attempt to "walk the talk" also within our network, which means that we invite diversity, not least diverse approaches to studying our very topic, namely dignity and humiliation. ― Fourteenth century Persian Sufi poet Hafiz (see more here) My personal, slightly varied version would perhaps go as follows: I have learned so much from the larger universe of meaning around us that I can no longer call myself a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew. ― Marcelo Gleiser, in "The Island of Knowledge," 2014.
