Universalità dei Diritti Umani. Un chiasmo dialettico tra matrici di senso e concetto?

This contribution addresses the fascinating but ‘difficult issue’ of human rights. More specifically, the
leitmotiv of the overall essay is the (potential) universality of human rights. In this respect, the relationship
between human rights and fundamental rights is investigated in the first place. The next step coincides with the
assessment of the possible basis underlying human rights themselves. Finally, the last part is focused on the
dialectic and strained tension extant between universalism and relativism when the topic of rights is considered, with a conclusive analysis about the rights of non-human ‘subjects/persons.’
