This paper addresses the problem of historical change in human rights. Analyzing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the paper suggests that human rights maintain a view of historical change—a “philosophy of history”— which might be given further body, or fleshed-out, via Hegelian philosophy of history. “Alienation” is a decisive concept. Alienation drives concepts of change both in the UDHR and Hegelian concepts of historical transformation. The point here is less as a matter of Hegel scholarship, or valorizing the role of Hegel in the history of human rights, than indicating human rights as a philosophy of history. I.e., as much as law, social practice, institutional concept or mode of international relations, human rights might represent a way of thinking about the past. This has consequences for the “culture” problem surrounding human rights—i.e., are human rights interculturally comprehensible, and what are the bases for making arguments in that regard? This paper will offer no final answers to these questions. The paper will indicate, however, that the problem of historical thought may have a role to play in ongoing debates in the area.
