This chapter advocates a version of the Will Theory of rights, whilst also maintaining (in opposition to the previous chapter) that an account of rights can be based entirely or almost entirely on formal considerations with no reliance or virtually no reliance on substantive ethical premises. It explores in some detail the Kantian conception of morality, in order to bolster his view that the delimitation of rights can be effected on the basis of purely formal criteria.
