Duties to past persons: The moral standing and posthumous interests of old human remains

Abstract [en]

Research involving human remains presents complex challenges. For the archaeologist or anthropologist, for example, the remains represent among other things a source of knowledge about people and places, conditions and developments. However, the remains also represent the individuals from whom they originate. And while the dead can no longer be hurt or mistreated in the same way that the living can be hurt or mistreated, there are still strong and obvious reasons for treating them with some level of conscientiousness and consideration. Perhaps most obvious among these reasons is the notion of respect for the individual.
