This article examines some of the problems that are exposed when we try to figure out the appropriate conceptualization of human rights. Foremost, it explores the paradoxes ensuing the two traditional forms of definition in the titleholders of such rights: the moral personality and the ownership of human race. Subsequently, it revises the problem of childrens ownership rights. Finally, it reviews which type of subjective rights are the human rights.
