On the philosophy and legal theory of human rights in light of quantum holism

World Futures 66 (1):1 – 25 (2010)
Abstract
This article explores the traditional basis of modern human rights doctrines and exposes some of the systemic shortcomings. It then posits that a number of these problems are advanced via integrating some developments in the philosophy of science and substantive scientific research into legal philosophy. This article argues that supervening holism grounded in quantum mechanics provides an alternative basis to human rights by positing an ontological construct that is congruous with many of the wisdom traditions practiced around the world. Such a foundation exposes a rational imperative for universal human rights and hence appeals to legal pragmatists
