The Architecture of Concepts

This chapter presents a data dependent account of the formation of eighteenth century accounts of the rights of man. It makes a distinction between right and rights and demonstrates the difference in architecture between these two concepts. The emergence of a third concept, ‘rights of man’ is also tracked through the analysis of word searches in Eighteenth Century Collections On Line.

Keywords:   Rights, Human rights, Rights of man, Rights of mankind, Liberties
