Legal Rights

Pavlos Eleftheriadis

  • Examines a wide range of rights theories and problems - from the right to property in economic analysis to the role of rights in political liberalism
  • Rehabilitates Rawls' idea of 'Public Reason' and indicates its potential impact for fundamental questions in the philosophy of law
