Elements of the philosophy of human rights
University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Philosophy, Department of Philosophy
Keywords: philosophy of human rights; human rights; law; morality; science; Aristotel; Hegel; four causes
The paper investigates the possibility of establishing the philosophy of human rights as a distinct philosophical science. Contemporary thematizations of problems related to human rights are called philosophies, but they are not philosophical in their essence. Following Hegel's understanding of the modern ethical order and Aristotle's teaching on the four causes, an attempt is made to give a framework for exploring the possibility of establishing the philosophy of human rights as a particular philosophical science. The framework includes considerations of the definition of the subject matter and methods, as well as an attempt to practically apply Aristotle's teaching on the four causes to the notion of human rights.
