Abstract: Nowadays human rights are the lingua franca of international relations and cooperation policies bewtween states. However, they are also fragile tools, sometimes manipulated to develop national interests. How can we observe the universal principles of human rights? How do we justfy the legitimate practices derived by them? In this book, the author analyses philosophical and juridical matters to suggest the political and constitutional lines underlying the people ideal of justice. The core of the debate is the most recent theory by J. Habermas, leading exponent of the Critical Theory nowadays, and one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. The author discusses this line of thought, suggesting that human rights open a new dimension of universalism, a level here defined in terms of "pluralistic universalism".

The new critical idiom.
Abstract: Ecocriticism explores the ways in which we imagine and portray the relationship between humans and the environment in all areas of cultural production, from Wordsworth and Thoreau through to Google Earth, J.M. Coetzee and Werner Herzog's Grizzly Man. Greg Garrard's animated and accessible volume traces the development of the movement and explores its key concepts, including: pollution, wilderness, apocalypse, dwelling, animals, and earth. Featuring a newly rewritten chapter on animal studies, and considering queer and postcolonial ecocriticisms and the impact of globalisation, this fully updated second edition also presents a glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading in print and online. Concise, clear, and authoritative. Ecocriticism offers the ideal introduction to this crucial subject for students of literary and cultural studies.
