Aristotele e i diritti

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article challenges the mainstream opinion that views rights as a modern discovery (or innovation) alien to ancient and medieval political thought. The author first marshals linguistic evidence for attributing a concept of rights to Aristotle (W.N. Hohfeld's analysis of right is used to this purpose), and then shows that Aristotle's best regime is just in the sense that it guarantees the rights of individual citizens.
