Gordon Wood on Lynn Hunt

Gordon Wood, whose own corpus is reviewed here by Steve Hayward, appreciates (I wouldn’t really call it a review) Lynn Hunt’s Inventing Human Rights. I look forward to a real review of a book that makes some interesting claims about the invention of the notion of human rights. At the moment, I simply find it amazing that one can write about inwardness and empathy without mentioning religion.
