This book is an exploration of the concept of natural rights and their relation to history. The author argues that the idea of natural rights is a fundamental aspect of Western civilization and is essential for its survival, but also notes that this concept has been largely forgotten or misunderstood in the modern world. The book examines the origins and development of natural rights, from ancient Greece to the American Revolution, and critiques modern political philosophies that have moved away from this idea. It also discusses the relationship between natural rights and history, and the implications of this relationship for the future of Western civilization.
