Aristotle on Human Rights - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 69
Human rights/Aristotle/Höffe: Aristotle did not have institutions like the basic and human rights, like the parties and associations, like the press or even a constitutional court, nor a legislator in the modern modern sense. Elementary inequalities are particularly serious. Although Aristotle defined human beings through language and reason, he did not grant them legal and political equality. On the contrary, he justifies the inequalities of his time, the lack of equal rights for women, slaves and barbarians.
