This book uses the concept of universal human rights to explore the relationship between the individual, society, and truth. To answer the question of how we say something universally true about human beings while lacking the philosophical means to do so, the author explores the changing relationship between truth and politics from Plato to Locke.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As the number of 'human rights' multiplies, the differences between a right, a desire, and a felt need become ever more blurred. This important book helps to clear the mind of cant and confusion, displaying a more firm foundation for our indispensable concern for human rights." - (The Rev.) Richard John Neuhaus, Editor-in-Chief of First Things"Learnedly, but also with grace and wit, Janet Holl Madigan shows why careful attention to the philosophical tradition reveals that any claim to human rights must be grounded in unequivocal respect for life and liberty."

- Charles E. Butterworth, University of Maryland
