Philosophers Index Abstract

    The aim of this essay is to argue for four propositions concerning rights: first, that we have a right to punishment: second, that this right derives from a fundamental human right to be treated as a person; third, that this fundamental right is a natural, inalienable, and absolute right; and, fourth, that the denial of this fundamental right implies the denial of all moral rights and duties.
