This book concerns equality in personal status—absolute, anti-discrimination—and how formal protection was superseded by material, fuller protection. It discusses history—Latin America, then the French Revolution—and disciplines—philosophy, ethics, economics, sociology, systems theory—with their diverse views and moves into modern phenomena like digitalization.
