AGUIRRE ROMAN, Javier Orlando. Hannah Arendt and Charles Marxa debate on Human Rights and the discourse on rights. Opin. jurid. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.17, pp. 35-54. ISSN 1692-2530.
This article has two objectives: 1. Conceptual reconstruction based on the reading of "The Jewish Question" written by Charles Marx, about the basic elements of his criticism to the discourse of rights. 2. Conceptual reconstruction of the main categories of Arendt's philosophy which allow giving response to Marxist criticism and interpreting Arendt's idea on the right to have rights. The article is divided into three parts. The first part shows the main criticism made by Marx to the discourse of rights, found in "The Jewish Question." Second part, the answer to this criticism stated from Hannah Arendt is found; in the third section, some conclusions on these subjects are proposed.
