The Veritas Forum

What are Human Rights? And why do we have them?

Human rights and universal human dignity are values large swaths of human society profess to hold... but what are human rights? Why do we have them? What grounds our belief in human rights? Can a secular naturalism do it? How? Is religious belief required? This playlist explores the history of the development of the belief in human rights and the current philosophical debate around the source of one of our most popular modern doctrines. For almost twenty years, The Veritas Forum has brought people together—students, faculty, scholars, practitioners—to explore life's hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life. Our playlists continue that vision beyond the Veritas Forum events, bringing together resources from YouTube to further discussion. *Our playlists do not just represent content that we create, but also content that we curate around a certain discussion. So our playlists whenever possible include a diversity of voices from a diversity of worldviews, in the belief that this engagement leads to a clearer understanding of truth.
