What are the origins of the idea of human rights and universal human dignity? How can we most fully understand-and realize-these rights going into the future? In The Sacredness of the Person, internationally renowned sociologist and social theorist Hans Joas argues that human rights are the result of a process of "sacralization," in which every single human being has increasingly been viewed as sacred. In exemplary studies on the abolition of torture and slavery, as well as on the genesis of paradigmatic human rights declarations, Joas demonstrates how our understanding of human rights has emerged as diverse cultural traditions have been articulated, legally codified, and assimilated into practices of everyday life.
