Abstract

This review analyzes some reflections elaborated by twelve authors about substantive issues of traditional human rights theories. These aspects are systematized around the following sections: The relevance of the philosophical perspective in the critical review of human rights conceptions; the problem of the foundation of human rights; the absolute character as an essential property of this rights; the problem that fundamental rights lose its limit role to collective interest; the human dignity as a principle that allows, but also limits, individual autonomy; the effective exercise of autonomy against the presupposition of the autonomous agent; the problem of the universality of human rights in a context of plurality and diversity; the importance of the international system; and the rejection of a conception of rights and duties focused on the State.
