Ideology in Modern Times: Three Ideological Lies Behind Universal Human Rights

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
When the Soviet Union collapsed, it was believed that the following century would be time of the end of history, politics, and ideology. As a result, the times of liberal democracies seem to be post-ideological and postpolitical. An opposing view has, however, emerged insomuch that our times are considered more ideological than they have ever been before. The main aim of this paper is to consider whether modern times are post-ideological and post-political or not. The concept of human rights, a crucial foundation of liberal democracies, will serve as a reference. However, before I am able to analyze the ideological and political dimension(s) of human rights, I will try to reconstruct the notion of ideology and the political as itself. (fragment of text)
