Human Rights and Civil Rights | [John Arthur]

Human Rights and Civil Rights

Only a few hundred years ago there emerged the ideal of inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, free speech, freedom of conscience and religion. Yet rights now are routinely claimed to include health care, employment, housing, and education; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights even lists paid vacations. Are rights bestowed by government, or do we possess them simply because we are human?

Publisher's Summary

Only a few hundred years ago there emerged the ideal of inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, free speech, freedom of conscience and religion. Yet rights now are routinely claimed to include health care, employment, housing, and education; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights even lists paid vacations. Are rights bestowed by government, or do we possess them simply because we are human? Do we have a "right" to all things we need for a full human life, even if it obligates others to provide them?

The Morality in Our Age series examines the historical and philosophical background of today's most pressing moral challenges. Though a final "answer" is notoriously elusive in moral discussion, you'll develop a much better insight into the forces and principles at play on today's most serious moral issues, problems, and dilemmas.

Don't miss other titles in the Morality in Our Age series.

    "Impressive"

    I was deeply impressed by the scope and width of this concise book. It has lots of up-to-date material describing the works of contemporary thinkers, while never neglecting historical and philosophical issues. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to everyone interested in rights and liberties, beginning students and experienced professionals alike.
