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.
