Student: Iuliia Ageeva

Supervisor: Rodion Belkovich

Faculty: Faculty of Law

Educational Programme: Jurisprudence (Bachelor)

The historical roots of the theory of natural rights date back to the Greco-Roman legal heritage. Of particular importance are discussions on the concepts of physis-nomos and dichotomy - ius-lex. Two versions of the consequentialist approach to libertarianism will be considered: the Chicago School of Economics and the Austrian School of Economics. Supporters of natural rights will be represented by Robert Nozick and Murray Rothbard. The theory of property rights is also considered. In addition, the last chapter examines the category of self-ownership and approaches to understanding intellectual property rights.
