Real rights by Carl Wellman ( )
12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Real Rights provides a new theory of the grounds of legal and moral rights.

Real Rights also describes how rights imply duties, and how rights conflicts can be resolved and what considerations override rights

Do patients undergoing intolerable irremediable suffering have a moral right to physician-assisted suicide? Ought they to have a comparable legal right?

The moral dimensions of human rights by Carl Wellman ( Book )
17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many books on human rights either concentrate on human rights as fundamental moral rights with little attention to international human rights, or discount moral human rights and focus on international human rights. The Moral Dimensions of Human Rights takes a broad approach by discussing all three species of human rights - moral, international, and national -at length. At the same time, Carl Wellman pays special attention to the moral reasons that are relevant to each kind of human rights. The book has three parts. In the first, Wellman develops an original view of the nature and grounds of moral human rights based on his previous publications in the general theory of rights, especially Real Rights. The next part explains how moral human rights are relevant both to the justification and to the interpretation of human rights in international law and identifies several other relevant moral considerations. In the third part, the author argues that different kinds of moral and international human rights ought to be incorporated into national legal systems in four distinct ways-recognition in a written constitution, judicial decisions, legislation, and ratified human rights treaties. -- Product Description

5. Animal Rights and Environmental Ethics
Terrorism and counterterrorism a moral assessment by Carl Wellman ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a definition of terrorism that is broad and descriptive and much needed to prevent misunderstanding. The book identifies the features that make terrorism 'wrong', including coerciveness, the violation of rights and undermining of trust. Next, it evaluates reasons given for terrorism such as the protection of human rights and the liberation of oppressed groups as not normally justified. Following this, the book identifies and evaluates international responses to terrorism, taking into account General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, United Nations conventions and cr
An approach to rights : studies in the philosophy of law and morals by Carl Wellman ( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An Approach to Rights contains fifteen previously published but mostly inaccessible papers that together show the development of one of the more important contemporary theories of the nature, grounds and practical implications of rights. In a long retrospective essay, Carl Wellman explains what he was trying to accomplish in each paper, how far he believes that he succeeded and where he failed. Thus the author provides a critical perspective both on his own theory and on alternative theories from which he borrows, or that he rejects. These essays identify the problems any adequate theory of rights must solve, describe the more plausible solutions and weigh the merits of each. They will be of special interest to any reader concerned with legal theory, moral philosophy or any branch of applied ethics or social policy in which appeals to rights are frequently made but seldom rationally satisfactory
Rights and reason : essays in honor of Carl Wellman by Marilyn Friedman ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The collection honors the eminent rights theorist, Carl Wellman, on the occasion of his retirement. Stimulated by Wellman's extensive writings on rights, the newly written essays here address such topics as the grounding of rights, the universality of rights, conflict among legal rights, the nature of political rights, the care-based presuppositions of rights, the misuse of rights talk, the connection between rights and religion, and the rights of cultural minorities, as well as related issues concerning the foundations of morality and the nature of justice. Aimed at researchers, scholars, graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the fields of philosophy, law, human rights and political theory."--BOOK JACKET
