Abstract

This chapter provides the basis for a process theoretical sociology of human rights. It offers critiques of Luhmannian and Foucaultian approaches and builds upon Turner's (1993) rethinking of the fact / value distinction. A.N. Whitehead's implicit sociology from 'Adventures in Ideas' (1933) is presented as a valuable precursor to process thinking in sociology.
