This history of natural rights thinking between 1150 and 1625 is relevant to the important contemporary questions of whether natural rights is a "western" or more universal notion; of the scope or content of the idea of natural rights; of how the earlier classical and medieval ideas of natural rights relate to the modern notions; and of how natural law, the laws of nature, and natural rights, relate if at all.
Because much of the discussion is about the meaning and understanding of medieval latin terms one regrets not paying more attention in high school latin class. That said Tierney makes it as easy as it can be with his lucid analytic style. Working ones way through this classic is well worth the effort.
