Living With Respect

What is respect? Despite its wide usage across disciplines, the concept of “respect” has received little deliberate attention. This phenomenological study attempts to understand people’s experiences of respect in a university service setting. Analyses of the meaning of respect reveal multiple interrelated themes. Mutual interaction binds together the themes of care, acceptance, responsibility, equality, and achievement. We suggest that respect may be foundational to successful relationships.
