The new issue of Opera historica 21 (2020), Nr. 1 focuses on the discussion on Dan Edelstein's book about human rights and natural law in France, Central Europe and America. The contributions come from distinguished French historians Olivier Grenouilleau (expert on the slave trade), Emmanuelle de Champs (expert on Bentham's legal philosophy), Thérence Carvalho (expert on the physiocrats and their global impact), plus the Czech historian Ivo Cerman (natural law) and responses from Dan Edelstein. The discussion reconsiders the overestimation of the 1970s in recent research and defends the siginficance of the Enlightenment.
All the contributions and abstracts are available on our new website www.opera-historica.com
