Description
The Community of Rights, Alan Gewirth's sequel to Reason and Morality, extends his fundamental principle of equal and universal human rights, the Principle of Generic Consistency, into the arena of social and political philosophy, exploring its implications for both social and economic rights.

"The Community of Rights argues that the ethical principles that guide individual action apply as well to the state, and that the state's failure to overcome such afflictions as unemployment, homelesshess, and poverty constitutes violations of basic human rights". -- Columbia College Today

"(The Community of Rights) argues that rights and community, rather than being antithetical to one another, have a relation of mutual support, and explores how this relation can serve to fulfill the economic and other rights of the most deprived members of society and thereby lead to greater economic and political equality". -- Journal of Economic Literature
