This chapter looks at the debate between the Interest Theory and the Will Theory of rights. Most proponents of the Interest Theory believe that it allows for ascriptions of rights to the dead. It argues that any such ascriptions are untenable on the Interest Theory's own terms.

Keywords:   rights, Interest Theory, Will Theory, death, interests
