Title: THE WRONGNESS OF RIGHTS: A CRITIQUE OF MODERN MORAL LANGUAGE
Authors: Pines, W. Colby
Advisors: Miller, Bradley
Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2013
Abstract: This paper argues that appeals to rights should not be part of moral discourse, and suggests that rights talk is actually counter-productive to debate. It is argued that there are better ways to communicate substantively normative ideas without relying on the vague and/or question-begging language of rights.
