Resumen

ORTIZ LEROUX, Sergio. Democracy and Human Rights: A Reading from the Theory of Claude Lefort. Isonomía [online]. 2014, n.41, pp.175-203. ISSN 1405-0218.

Academic debate on the political meaning of human rights has emphasized their negative or private dimension, setting aside the positive or public dimension they display in the process of integration of a particular political society, such as the democratic one. The essay retrieves the political dimension of human rights as a key constitutive element of democratic society. It hypotheses that human rights provide a letter of naturalness to a real struggle for political freedom and against oppression finding its historical realization in a democratic society and its negation in a totalitarian one. To develop the argument, it resorts to the theory of Claude Lefort, who associates human rights discourse with a general conception of society that is historically realized, precisely, in the democratic society.

Palabras llave : human rights; democracy; totalitarianism; political society; political freedom; Claude Lefort.
