Human Rights Ethics: A Rational Approach

Paperback
Human Rights Ethics makes an important contribution to contemporary philosophical and political debates concerning the advancement of global justice and human rights. Butler's book also lays claim to a significant place in both normative ethics and human rights studies in as much as it seeks to vindicate a universalistic, rational approach to human rights ethics. In the spirit of Hegel and Habermas. Butler proposes to vindicate a totally rational account of human rights, but one that depends on a right to freedom of thought in its universal modes.
