But to do right . . . Why the language of 'rights' does not do justice to justice

Abstract:
The essay critically engages Woltertorff's account of justice by challenging the political status of its archeological defence of rights language, its prioritizing of 'primary' and therefore 'procedural' justice, its suggestion to think of rights as 'social bonds' and the validity of subjecting God and world under one and the same concept of 'worth'.
