The Sacredness of the Person
Full Product Description
Joas demonstrates that the history of human rights cannot adequately be described as a history of ideas or as legal history, but a complex transformation in which diverse cultural traditions had to be articulated, legally codified, and assimilated into practices of everyday life. The sacralization of the person and universal human rights will only be secure in the future, warns Joas, through continued support by institutions and society, vigorous discourse in their defense, and their incarnation in everyday life and practice.
The Sacredness of the Person by Hans Joas was published by Georgetown University Press in February 2013. The ISBN for The Sacredness of the Person is 9781589019690.
