Human Rights and Civil Rights

The Morality in Our Age Series
By Prof. John Arthur, John Lachs, Mike Hassell & John Arthur
Narrated by Robert Guillaume / 2 hours 55 minutes

Only a few hundred years ago there emerged the ideal of inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, free speech, freedom of conscience and religion, etc. Yet rights now are routinely claimed to include health care, employment, housing, and education; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights even lists paid vacations. Are rights bestowed by government, or do we possess them simply because we are human? Do we have a “right” to all things we need for a full human life—even if it obligates others to provide them?

The Morality in Our Age series examines the historical and philosophical background of today’s most pressing moral challenges. Though a final “answer” is notoriously elusive in moral discussion, you’ll develop a much better insight into the forces and principles at play on today’s most serious moral issues, problems, and dilemmas.
