Thomas Paine and the Idea of Human Rights

Langue : Anglais

Auteur :

Couverture de l’ouvrage Thomas Paine and the Idea of Human Rights
Thomas Paine is a legendary Anglo-American political icon: a passionate, plain-speaking, relentlessly controversial, revolutionary campaigner, whose writings captured the zeitgeist of the two most significant political events of the eighteenth century, the American and French Revolutions. Though widely acknowledged by historians as one of the most important and influential pamphleteers, rhetoricians, polemicists and political actors of his age, the philosophical content of his writing has nevertheless been almost entirely ignored. This book takes Paine's political philosophy seriously. It explores his views concerning a number of perennial issues in modern political thought including the grounds for, and limits to, political obligation
Introduction; 1. Paine as political philosopher: interpretation and understanding; 2. Political obligation, human rights and the moral universe; 3. Rights of democratic inclusion and the virtues of citizenship; 4. Private property, the natural inheritance and rights to welfare; 5. Cosmopolitanism and the rights of nations; 6. Religion, creation and liberalism; Conclusion.
