PH 354 - Philosophy of Human Rights


The general aim of the course is to assist students in developing the moral perspective they already have by focusing on the nature and significance of human rights within the contemporary context of globalization. Drawing on a dialogical, Socratic model, resources are provided to enable the student to bring their own perspective into dialogue with a number of different philosophical, religious and cultural perspectives. These views represent visions, values and commitments, often harmonious but at times in opposition, which have played and continue to play a significant role in the evolution of human rights.

Prerequisites: One 200-level course; seniors completing their philosophy major; and, if seats are available, open to other seniors with permission of instructor.
