In this conference paper I critically assess Jim Nickel's (in his otherwise excellent second edition of 'Making Sense of Human Rights') characterization of and objections to Rawls's position on human rights as 'ultraminimalist.' I explore also the differences in Nickel's and Rawls's commitments to liberal toleration.
