PHL 614 Philosophy of Human Rights

Are human rights universal? Are they absolute? Have civil and political rights been privileged in relation to social and economic rights? Should some human rights be understood as collective or group rights to address issues of cultural identity? This course critically examines the works of contemporary philosophers articulating diverse accounts of human rights, alongside objections which have been raised by Feminists, Cultural Relativists, and advocates of The Full Belly Thesis, and other perspectives.
