Abstract

universalism of revolutionaries. Friedrich August Hayek regards Burke's doctrine in another way. His opposition to Human Rights might be a moment of an internal conflict between two conceptions of rationality in modern thinking: constructivism and confidence in the natural order. Hayek never deals with Human Rights in general, and the Universal Declaration in particular in his works. 6 They are discussed through the analysis of "social justice". 7 The winner of the Nobel prize for economics developed one of the most innovatory philosophies of Law of the 20^ century. Villey-1990, pp. 11-13 ; -1986, p. 146. Villey-1969, pp. 60-84. Burke-1996, pp. 183-285 ; Burke-1989, pp. 41-44. See e.g. Barry-1979, n. 18, pp. 218-219 ; Hoy-1984, p. 49. See Lukes-1996, pp. 617-627. Feldman. Hayek's Critique of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Hayek made a general criticism of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in an article published in a Norwegian review in 1966.
