A ruptura dos direitos humanos na filosofia política de Hannah Arendt
The aim of this paper is to discuss Hannah Arendt's critique of human rights according to the Western tradition. With this objective, we analyze its foundations from the social contract philosophers such as Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau, as well as its implementation in policy statements of the American and French revolutions. Human rights tended to be confused with the rights of citizens, particularly the within nations. Arendt will propose the existence of an international political arena to ensure the protection of human rights regardless of national states, a space where each individual, for belonging to humanity, has the right to have rights.
