About this video

In this first video of a four-part seminar, Craig Biddle surveys common theories of rights—from God-given rights to man-made rights to so-called “natural” rights—and shows that each fails to ground rights in perceptual reality. Biddle then demonstrates that because rights are moral principles—principles regarding how people should be free to act—the task of grounding rights in reality includes that of grounding morality in reality and thus bridging the so-called “is-ought” gap.
