Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The Challenge of Human Rights traces the history of human rights theory from classical antiquity through the enlightenment to the modern human rights movement, and analyses the significance of human rights in today’s increasingly globalized world.

  • Provides an engaging study of the origin and the philosophical and political development of human rights discourse.
  • Offers an original defence of human rights.
  • Explores the significance of human rights in the context of increasing globalisation.
  • Confronts the major objections to human rights, including the charge of western ethical imperialism and cultural relativism.

Argues that human rights logically culminate in an ethical cosmopolitanism to reflect the moral unity of the human race.

From the Back Cover:

The Challenge of Human Rights traces the history of human rights theory from classical antiquity through the enlightenment to the modern human rights movement, and analyzes the significance of human rights in today’s increasingly globalized world. In this illuminating study, Jack Mahoney surveys and critiques the emerging awareness in history of human rights as an invaluable ethical resource; chronicles their growing recognition and acceptance in modern times; analyses their contents, details, and philosophical basis; and illustrates their relevance and significance today.

Unparalleled in scope and clarity, this engaging book:


  • critically examines the arguments for human rights and offers an original defence for them;
  • explores the meaning of human rights in the context of increasing globalization;
  • confronts the major objections to human rights, including the charge of Western ethical imperialism and the counterclaims of cultural relativism.

Mahoney concludes that human rights are an indispensable addition to modern ethical resources and logically culminate in a cosmopolitan recognition of the whole human race as a single moral family.
