Professor Gaita argues that love plays both a constitutive and revelatory role in our understanding of the idea that human beings are, as we sometimes say, unique and irreplaceable. In addition, he takes love to play an important role in explaining what we are getting at when we talk about the Dignity – or the inalienable Dignity – of humanity or of individual persons. He stresses that there are different forms of love, all of them forms of the ethical, but not thereby of morality, and that some forms of love conflict with morality – or at least with non-moralistic conceptions of it.

Given the inadequacy of other means of securing documents, individuals at almost all levels of Byzantine society used personal seals that they would change frequently to mark changes in their career or status. By discussing how homonymity, gender, family devotions, offices, or urban affiliation have stimulated an individual’s choice of iconography, it is the aim of this paper to demonstrate what an essential body of material seals are for any investigation devoted to the question of identity in Byzantium.

In many western legal systems, public law stands at the crossroads. Now a well–established field of law and doctrinal inquiry, public law has nevertheless either lost its self-evident "autonomy" in the continental systems (as in France) or never acquired such a privileged status (UK, and possibly Australia), despite its development. Redefining the boundaries of public law now seems more necessary than ever. This may raise questions as to the status of the core concepts in the field, and a willingness to challenge the very nature of the "publicness" of public law.
