Informations and abstract

Keywords: Power; Rights; Hohfeldian Incidents.

Giorgio Pino's defense of the idea that social rights are «true rights» is grounded upon a Hohfeldian «molecular» conception of rights that allows for the weakening of the nexus between rights and duties, and as a consequence between rights and their susceptibility to judicial due processes. The a. discusses this conception, drawing on the restatement of Hohfeld's categories proposed by Max Radin, and suggests that the molecular conception is misleading if and in so far as it mistakes types of statements about rights for types of rights.
