Chapter 5: Human rights through topo-logic: a theoretical foundation
Restricted access

The chapter combines a continuing discussion of Nishida’s philosophical ideas as they relate to the three core elements of the current objectification mechanism in human rights law: freedom, property, and right. The chapter reveals that while these same three elements are also joined together in Nishida’s discussion of right, by imbuing them with a very different meaning emerging from his view of reality that dissolves the subject/object dichotomy, Nishida’s philosophy offers a basis, an alternative vision of reality (his topo-logic), on which to theorize and develop a vision of human rights beyond subject/object dichotomy.
