British philosopher A.C. Grayling surveys the origins of the ideas of individual liberties and rights that formed the modern West. Produced in collaboration with the University of Manitoba's Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics, Professor Grayling speaks before an audience at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. This lecture is the first in a series of upcoming talks called Fragile Freedoms: the Global Struggle for Human Rights.
