Legal Positivism does not predicate law on absolute morals and that law exists based on the realities that enforce it.

Philosophers also approach the problems within law, or the quirks to be analyzed within law, by examining two different angles. One examines issues with the structure of law and the systems that adjudicate it. Some might theorize that there are inherent flaws that undermine the authority of a government or let contradictory laws exist simultaneously.

The author then advocates improvements in the law to make it respect our moral rights more fully. Thus, these essays test the usefulness of the theory of rights explained and defended in An Approach to Rights and elsewhere. To justify his conclusions, he proposes original conceptions of the human rights to life, procreational autonomy, privacy, equitable treatment and personal security.

An Approach to Rights contains fifteen previously published but mostly inaccessible papers that together show the development of one of the more important contemporary theories of the nature, grounds and practical implications of rights. In a long retrospective essay, Carl Wellman explains what he was trying to accomplish in each paper, how far he believes that he succeeded and where he failed. Thus the author provides a critical perspective both on his own theory and on alternative theories from which he borrows, or that he rejects. These essays identify the problems any adequate theory of rights must solve, describe the more plausible solutions and weigh the merits of each. They will be of special interest to any reader concerned with legal theory, moral philosophy or any branch of applied ethics or social policy in which appeals to rights are frequently made but seldom rationally satisfactory.
