Andrew asked whether there had been further discussion of Shue’s claims about positive and negative rights.
I said that I would post references to a book by Cass Sunstein and a critical review by Alan Gewirth. Here they are.
- Holmes, Stephen, and Cass R. Sunstein. The cost of rights : why liberty depends on taxes. 1st ed. New York: W.W. Norton, 1999.
- Gewirth, Alan. “Are All Rights Positive?” Philosophy & Public Affairs 30, no. 3 (2001): 321-33. [electronic copy]
