Man's Rights

John Ridpath

Presented at: CC 1990

Date: Jun 30, 1990

The concept of man's right is crucial to establishing a proper society, and yet rights presently are being evaded, distorted, and even used to attack rights. This course will examine Ayn Rand's identification of what rights are, and then analyze the Enlightenment's view of rights (Cicero, Grotius, Locke, Jefferson), the French Revolution's distortion of rights (Rousseau); the British attack on rights (Hume, Smith, Burke, Bentham, Mill); and the twentieth century's perversion of rights.
