   schema:description "The rationalization of power has been an enduring feature of Modernity, assigning to human rights the task of subjecting the excesses of power to the scrutiny of critical reason. Gaete examines this task in the wake of the crisis of modernity, when the belief that man can draw principles out of his own ground has lost its authority and when the very possibility of an enlightened, disinterested Reason is being questioned. The aim of the book is not to offer another critique of rights but to investigate how both rights and critiques are transformed by the rhetoric of power. The author traces the discourse of judicial criticism as a series of rhetorical operations, bringing to light the paradoxes, antinomies and 'truth games' that permeate the field of human rights. He interrogates the discourse of modern humanism and investigates how its claims to being the law of the law and the metaphysics of the modern State shape the bond between State and citizen."@en ;
   schema:description "Gaete carries his argument across the fields of post-Nietzschean philosophy, anglo-american jurisprudence, political science, cultural and legal studies opening new ground for analyses of the rhetoric of rights."@en ;
