Human Rights in a Posthuman World

Upendra Baxi


This book discusses and combines the different reflections on the human rights theory in the contemporary human condition, which was delineated by the discourses on development, terror, and the emergent posthuman. The six chapters cover a variety of topics, from theory-aversion, to the terror wars, and the posthuman. This book suggests that any general social theory of human rights needs to increase its domain in order to take the discourses on terror and the posthuman seriously.

Keywords: human rights theory, contemporary human condition, discourses, development, terror, posthuman, theory-aversion, terror wars
