Personhood can be explained in terms of autonomy, liberty, and minimum provision. All more specific human rights can then be seen as falling under one or other of these three abstract headings. Under liberty, for example, fall several well-known freedoms, such as freedom of expression, of religion, of assembly, and so on. This chapter focuses on liberty in general — the high-level right.
