Inhaltsangabe: Is liberalism's attempt to defend universal rights an historical and hopeless quest doomed to failure? In this second volume of "The Oxford Amnesty Lecture" series seven political philosphers approach the problem from a variety of perspectives, and illustrate their arguments with a wealth of contemporary and historical examples. Together they grapple with the key question of contemporary political philosophy - articulating universal human rights that always apply in all cultures. The contributors include John Rawls, Richard Rorty, Catharine MacKinnon, Stephen Lukes, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Agnes Heller and John Elster. Susan Hurley is the author of "Natural Reasons".

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
