|Abstract||This cross-disciplinary book investigates how morality translates into action by presenting original psychological research on our understanding of human rights and duties. This topical focus is especially timely in [the] post-9/11 world where the relative rights and duties of citizens and the [American] government are foremost in our minds. One of the book's goals is to explore the general public's ideas (both in the United States and abroad) about rights versus duties so that legislative and policy changes can be based on solid support, not assumptions. Two strategies are used to lead readers toward a better understanding of human rights and duties. Chapters by empirical researchers present findings on citizen's commonsense understandings of rights and duties, whereas normative chapters by leading social theorists conceptualize rights and duties from many perspectives. By contrasting present-day circumstances of life in many social spheres with the world of ideas, the editors expose the debate between what human rights and duties are and what they ought to be. The contributions respond to a number of provocative questions raised by the authors, including the following: 1. Can duties have primacy over rights in one culture, while another culture is right-centered? 2. Are rights and duties imposed from the outside, or do they evolve as the self develops? 3. Does a set of "universal" rights and duties exist? 4. How does power in individual or group-to-group relationship affect rights and duties? (DIPF/Orig.).|
