Review of Talbott's 'Which Rights Should Be Universal?'


David A. Reidy


University of Tennessee - Department of Philosophy


Human Rights Review, Winter 2008

Abstract:     
This review essay sets out the key features of the human rights position developed by Bill Talbott in his Which Rights Should be Universal?. It then argues that Talbott's position is not so much an alternative to Rawls's position as it is a plausible and attractive answer to a question other than the one to which Rawls's own position on human rights is an answer.
