    Challenge and Response: Justification in Ethics.Carl Wellman - 1971 - Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press.
    Mr. Wellman’s highly original contribution to the relatively new field of justification in ethics consists of characterizing the different ways in which ethical statements can be challenged and showing how each sort of challenge can be met by an appropriate response, enabling reasonable men to appropriately discuss or reflect on ethical issues. In developing his unique, systematic, methodology of ethics, Mr. Wellman has, first, rigorously reviewed and refuted the main arguments for the view of the nature of all reasoning as (...)

    Real Rights.Carl Wellman - 1995 - Oxford University Press.
    Real Rights offers a new theory of the grounds of legal and moral rights, thereby providing a platform from which to determine whether alleged rights are "real" or not. In particular, Wellman conceives of a legal or moral right as a complex of liberties, claims, powers, and immunities, and distinguishes the kinds of laws and moral reasons that can ground each of these. The book argues that only agents can be right-holders, that children and the mentally-limited can have only limited (...)

    A Theory of Rights: Persons Under Laws, Institutions, and Morals.Carl Wellman - 1985 - Rowman & Allanheld.
    This book makes two important contributions toward a general and systematic theory of rights-a powerful philosophical analysis of the language of rights and an explanation of the nature of rights. In working out these ideas, Wellman has provided a new and cohesive way of thinking and talking about rights of every sort. Wellman succeeds in bringing all kinds of rights-moral, legal, institutional, etc.-under one unified theory in a way that illuminates their similarities and differences. This enables him to deal in (...)

    The Proliferation of Rights: Moral Progress or Empty Rhetoric?Carl Wellman - 1999 - Westview Press.
    The Proliferation of Rights explores how the assertion of rights has expanded dramatically since World War II. Carl Wellman illuminates for the reader the historical developments in each of the major categories of rights, including human rights, civil rights, women’s rights, patient rights, and animal rights. He concludes by assessing where this proliferation has been legitimate and helpful, cases where it has been illusory and unproductive, and alternatives to the appeal to rights.

    An Approach to Rights contains fifteen previously published but mostly inaccessible papers that together show the development of one of the more important contemporary theories of the nature, grounds and practical implications of rights. In a long retrospective essay, Carl Wellman explains what he was trying to accomplish in each paper, how far he believes that he succeeded and where he failed. Thus the author provides a critical perspective both on his own theory and on alternative theories from which he (...)

    Freedom and Fulfillment: Philosophical Essays. 1992. Reprint.Carl Wellman & Joel Feinberg - 1996 - Philosophical Review 105 (3):413.
    This is a third volume of philosophical essays by Joel Feinberg. It exemplifies the clear and elegant formulation, useful conceptual distinctions, perceptive and imaginative insights, and powerful argument we have come to expect from him. Each of the first twelve essays deals with a problem of importance to moral philosophy and philosophy of law; the last two provide a preliminary taste of his projected inquiry into the absurd. Although these essays are diverse, Feinberg informs us that this volume continues its (...)

    Constitutional Rights -What They Are and What They Ought to Be.Carl Wellman - 2016 - Springer Verlag.
    This work explains the nature of constitutional rights. It does so by means of an analysis of the nature of law in general, the nature of constitutions, and the nature of rights. It looks in detail at several aspects of constitutional law, rights and institutions, as well as aspects related to public officials, private persons and associations. In addition, the book critically examines a considerable number of debates about whether some actual or proposed constitutional rights ought to be established and (...)

  26. The Functions of Rights.Carl Wellman - 2011 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 97 (2):169-177.
    On the basis of a Hohfeldian analysis of rights, Leif Wenar explains how rights perform six distinct functions. He then argues that his several function theory is preferable to the single function will and interest theories of rights. But in his description of the theories of H. L. A. Hart and Neil MacCormick, he fails to distinguish between essential and non-essential functions. When these are considered, neither is a single function theory. And an ambiguity in Wenar's descriptions of the functions (...)

  31. The Rule of Crisis: Terrorism, Emergency Legislation and the Rule of Law.Pierre Auriel, Olivier Beaud & Carl Wellman (eds.) - 2018 - Springer Verlag.
    This book analyzes emergency legislations formed in response to terrorism. In recognition that different countries, with different legal traditions, have different solutions, it adopts a comparative point of view. The countries profiled include America, France, Israel, Poland, Germany and United Kingdom. The goal is not to offer judgment on one response or the other. Rather, the contributors offer a comprehensive and thoughtful examination of the entire concept. In the process, they draw attention to the inadaptability of traditional legal and philosophical (...)

    El autor presenta en este texto diversos aspectos de su propuesta de teoría general de los derechos. Esta teoría toma a los legales como modelo de los derechos en general. Se plantea como primer objetivo la necesidad de esclarecer el discurso de los derechos, tanto por razones teóricas como prácticas, esto es, para detallar el alcance práctico de cada derecho. Este objetivo podría lograrse con la aplicación de categorías fundamentales que analizó W. N. Hohfeld al lenguaje de los derechos. También (...)
