What is a Human? The American Public's Views and the Impact on Human Rights

Εθνικό Ίδρυμα Ερευνών, Αθήνα

Πώς ορίζεται ένας Άνθρωπος; Οι απόψεις της αμερικανικής Κοινής Γνώμης και ο αντίκτυπός τους στα Ανθρώπινα Δικαιώματα

Ο ορισμός της έννοιας «Άνθρωπος» είναι ένα κάτι που μας απασχολεί από τότε που οι άνθρωποι απέκτησαν κριτική αυτοσυνείδηση. Ο επιστημονικός διάλογος έχει αναδείξει, μεταξύ άλλων, και το επιχείρημα ότι όποιος μετέρχεται τον «λάθος» ορισμό του Ανθρώπου, αντιμετωπίζει τους άλλους με λιγότερο ανθρωπισμό.
