CafeLitt 127: Human dignity, rights and justice

Thu 2 Jul 2009, 19:00, by Mohammad Larijani, at Cafe Linda:1909 Rue Ste-Catherine Ouest,Montreal (Map)
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world (first paragraph of preamble of the Universal declaration of Human Rights), I would like to explore the concept of the dignity and rights of human family at the first place and as the second step I am willing to shed light on the concept of justice as one of the three ultimate goals for human society. (the two other ultimate goals are freedom and peace that we will talk about them in another sessions)

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
