Direitos humanos, qualidade de vida, dignidade humana, libertade real, diversidade cultural. Palavras Chave En este artículo, se propone la calidad de vida como una expresión concreta de la dignidad humana que permite supe- rar el relativismo en la discusión bioética sobre la diversidad cultural y los límites de una concepción universalista de los derechos humanos. Después de hacer referencia al proceso mediante el cual las nociones cristianas de dignidad humana y de derecho natural fueron secularizadas, se hace examen de la conservadora crítica culturalista de Lee Kwan Yew y de la crítica comunitarista de Charles Taylor a la concepción universal de los derechos humanos. A partir de las respuestas de Thomas Pogge y de Amartya Sen a dichas críticas, finalmente se establece la relación que hay entre libertad, calidad de vida y capacidades humanas en la teoría de Sen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
