Legge e diritto naturale in Alasdair MacIntyre


di Gianluca Cavallo, Università di Torino – Il Pensare, Anno III, n. 3, 2014

This paper focuses on the theme of natural rights, as it emerges from the works of Alasdair MacIntyre.

MacIntyre’s writings contain the premises for an ontological foundation of natural rights, despite his rejection of any formulation of them.
