Auteur: Vaneigem, Raoul
Titel: A Declaration of Human Rights
Sub titel: On the Sovereignty of Life as Surpassing the Rights of Man
Raoul Vaneigem is an iconic figure in French philosophy. One of the founding fathers - along with Guy Debord - of the Situationist movement, his writings helped trigger the events of May 1968. After the inevitable Situationist split, Vaneigem pursued his own interests, and he has since established a unique place in the world of French political thought.In this work, he sets out quite literally to create a new declaration of human rights, by updating earlier declarations - from the French Revolution to the UN declaration in 1948 - on the grounds that "we can no longer make do with the liberties derived from free exchange, while the free circulation of capital is establishing a tyranny that reduces humankind and the earth to a commodity".
