The literature on rights is obviously vast and cannot be summarized adequately in a brief essay. Many aspects of rights theory are hotly contested. Without engaging the vast contested territory surrounding the thesis that rights and duties are correlative, let me then simply assert, for the purposes of this essay, that universal rights imply universal duties. 6 By contrast, local, stipulative rights are derived from a subset of those otherregarding duties that Kant called duties of “imperfect” obligation.

See, for example , how Anthony Powell developed this idea in his writings (Treglown 1995). That is, as Jacques Derrida argues, the opposite of “what is” is not “what is not,” but rather the difference itself. This approach keeps the individual rooted in circumstances, family, society, and culture (Derrida 1982). Derrida goes on to note that, by emphasizing difference, one deconstructs all efforts of establishing a kingdom. In his thinking, there can be no capital letters, not even I. No one perspective, for instance, autonomy, could govern our ethics.
