520 "Human rights have a rich life in the world around us.
Political rhetoric pays tribute to them, or scorns them.
Citizens and activists strive for them. The law enshrines
them. And they live inside us too. For many of us, human
rights form part of how we understand the world and what
must (or must not) be done within it. The ubiquity of
human rights raises questions for the philosopher. If we
want to understand these rights, where do we look? As a
set of moral norms, it is tempting to think they can be
grasped strictly from the armchair, say, by appeal to
moral intuition. But what, if anything, can that kind of
inquiry tell us about the human rights of contemporary
politics, law, and civil society -- that is, human rights
as we ordinarily know them? This volume brings together a
distinguished, interdisciplinary group of scholars to
address philosophical questions raised by the many facets
of human rights: moral, legal, political, and historical.
Its original chapters, each accompanied by a critical
commentary, explore topics including: the purpose and
methods of a philosophical theory of human rights; the
"Orthodox-Political" debate; the relevance of history to
philosophy; the relationship between human rights morality
and law; and the value of political critiques of human
rights."--|cProvided by publisher.
