Human Rights and Human Well-Being

William Talbott

Oxford Political Philosophy

  • This book provides: a new consequentialist theory of moral and legal improvement; a new resolution to the so-called naturalistic fallacy; a list of robust, inalienable, human rights; a new argument against moral relativism
  • Talbott develops a new consequentialist rationale for rights against legal paternalism
  • The author offers insight on issues at the center of contemporary human rights debates, such as same sex marriage, assisted suicide, rights against paternalism, and rights to social insurance
