After sketching the three basic types or generations of human rights recognized by the international community, the author explicates their principal conceptual-historical features in four theses concerning socially guaranteed priority interests; hermeneutical interaction; levels of intercultural and intracultural justification; theory-neutrality; he then explores yet further implications of those features (compatibility with both liberal and communitarian traditions; openness to alternative forms of social regulation; radical interdependence of the generations). The article concludes by sketching alternative conceptions of the levels of human rights justification, relating these to recent philosophical positions on the prospects for a common morality.
