A philosophical theory is a theory that explains or accounts for a general philosophy or specific branch of philosophy. While any sort of thesis or opinion may be termed a theory, in analytic philosophy it is thought best to reserve the word "theory" for systematic, comprehensive attempts to solve problems.

Human Rights is an introductory text that is both innovative and challenging. It invites students to think conceptually about one of the most important and influential political concepts of our time.

In this unique interdisciplinary approach, Michael Freeman emphasizes the complex ways in which the experiences of the victims of human rights violations are related to legal, philosophical and Reviews: 1.

We can also declare that the interest theory of rights is, in its bid to politicise every sphere of human relationships and human interaction, wholly incompatible with international human rights law because “international law, by its nature, contains traits which alter the nature of human rights provisions” (Meckled-Garcia and Cali, ).

This book aims to explicate and defend an account of human rights as universal rights. I do not, however, argue that human rights are timeless, unchanging, or absolute.

Book Description. To those who invoke them, rights are powerful instruments for settling arguments in favour of the right-holders. But the nature, provenance and justification of rights are uncertain and disputed and there are doubts about whether rights should play a distinctive and fundamental role in moral and political discourse.

There are two competing theories as to the nature of rights: the theory which says that having a right of some kind is to do with the legal or moral recognition of some individual's choice as being pre-eminent over the will of others as to a given subject-matter in a given relationship, and the other theory which says that having a right is having one's interests protected in certain ways by.

Other theories hold that human rights codify moral behavior which is a human social product developed by a process of biological and social evolution (associated with Hume).

The examples used in the book, and the discussion questions supplied at the end of each chapter also help readers get a detailed picture of the topics covered/5(11).

First, it is thought unable to account for the full range of legal rights. Second, it is incoherent, for it values freedom while permitting an agent the option of alienating his or her capacity for choice.
