COIMBRA, Cecília Maria Bouças; LOBO, Lilia Ferreira  and  NASCIMENTO, Maria Lívia do. Por uma invenção ética para os Direitos HumanosFor an ethical invention for Human Rights. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp. 89-102. ISSN 0103-5665.

By the means of the Philosophy of Difference as a theoretical reference, we seek to place in discussion concepts such as civilization, barbary, rights, human, evolution and progress, among others. Therefore, we historicize the genesis of Human Rights, in the context of the 1948 Declaration, during the Cold War, and, in Brazil, with the emergence of the new social movements after 1975. These historical happenings, besides having their importance, have produced effects of essentialism and naturalism, emptying and capturing, many times, the struggle for Human Rights. When positively affirming the right and humanity as processes, we raise the discussion of an ethics of immanence.

Keywords : rights; human; ethics; subject-affirming processes.
