To be or not to be: Charles Beitz on the Philosophy of Human Rights

Res Publica 16 (4):441-448 (2010)
Abstract
This is a review article of Charles Beitz's 2009 book on the philosophy of human rights, The Idea of Human Rights. The article provides a charitable overview of the book's main arguments, but also raises some doubts about the depth of the distinction between Beitz's 'practical' approach to humans rights and its 'naturalistic' counterparts.
