(p.274) Chapter 5 The Futures of Human Rights
The Architecture of Concepts

Peter de Bolla

Fordham University Press

The final chapter addresses the vexed issue of contemporary international human rights. It uses the preceding account of the history of formation of the concept ‘rights of man’ to illumine current debates in the theory of universal human rights. It suggests that a concept of universal human rights must be structured through aspiration and outlines the consequences of this observation.
