Human Right Concept

Historical Evolution, Philosophy and Distortions


Human right concept (including its assumed particulars) was until the immediate post-World War 11 era referred to as natural right; and same derived from natural law (a concept in philosophy discourse). It has in today’s world of politics and positive law, among others, assumed the status of universal core value presumed to bind together all human persons. Despite the unanimity of opinions in terms of the assumed characteristics of the particulars of the universal-human right, divergences bedevil views on the assumed particulars of human right. Such divergences largely emanate from weak knowledge of the historical evolution, including the epistemological and logical foundation of natural (human) right. This book gives an insightful overview of the historical foundation and the epistemology of natural (human) right; including its being a logical derivative/efflux from the humanness of every person which equally remain inherent in all persons. It concludes with the view that all assumed ‘human rights’ enunciated in the different global declarations and conventions constitute ‘category mistake’ by virtue of their phenomenal and social characteristics.
