Sind die Menschenrechte westlich?

Hans Joas

Publisher: Kösel-Verlag


If the idea of human rights is a characteristic of Western culture, how can it be that long stretches of European history are riddled with slavery and torture? Hans Joas points to the West’s justification of inhumanity to show how fragile the progress of seeing a person as sacred actually is. And he warns against any cultural triumphalism that invokes the progress that has been made.
