    This book is utterly fascinating. From investigating what rights are metaphysically, how we can justify them and framework after framework - this book is an excellent introduction to the philosophy of human rights. Nickel has a very accessible writing style, which makes sure the prose (that can be dense at times) is still understandable. A refreshing optimistic take on human rights and documents of human rights, Nickel is also a realist and anticipates objections to all of the ideas that he adva This book is utterly fascinating. From investigating what rights are metaphysically, how we can justify them and framework after framework - this book is an excellent introduction to the philosophy of human rights. Nickel has a very accessible writing style, which makes sure the prose (that can be dense at times) is still understandable. A refreshing optimistic take on human rights and documents of human rights, Nickel is also a realist and anticipates objections to all of the ideas that he advances as well as countering the juggernaut of objections, CULTURAL RELATIVISM. He has 8 different responses, all of which are fairly rational to accept. Overall, a great read for anyone wishing to learn more about the philosophy of human rights.

    A very comprehensive text on human rights theory. The book starts with an introduction of the grounds of human rights and its justification. The author then furthers his arguments on what constitute a human right and how specific rights could be derived. Discussion goes on with more specific rights and their objections/justification. I would say the first part of the book comprises most of the meats and should be carefully studied. Some theories and deductions are not entirely persuasive but nev A very comprehensive text on human rights theory. The book starts with an introduction of the grounds of human rights and its justification. The author then furthers his arguments on what constitute a human right and how specific rights could be derived. Discussion goes on with more specific rights and their objections/justification. I would say the first part of the book comprises most of the meats and should be carefully studied. Some theories and deductions are not entirely persuasive but nevertheless serves a good starting point for further thinking. A pretty good classic text on human rights.
