|Author(s)||Albert Amalraj . M, Imkumnaro|
|Abstract||Philosophical foundations of human rights as envisioned by the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard, a pivotal figure in existentialist philosophy, presents a unique perspective on human rights that investigates into the individual’s subjective experience and moral responsibility. His ideas emphasize the significance of human agency, freedom, and the ethical imperative of choosing one’s values and actions authentically. This article provides an overview of Kierkegaard’s key concepts, such as the individual’s relation to God, the concept of authenticity, and the ethical life, and their implications for the understanding of human rights. It delves into Kierkegaard’s existentialist perspective and its implications for our understanding of human rights, highlighting the importance of individuality, freedom, and moral responsibility in his philosophical framework. It also highlights the potential contributions of Kierkegaard’s philosophy to contemporary discussions surrounding the nature and justification of human rights.|
