Theoretical understanding and philosophical comprehension of all legal phenomena
began with the traditional division of the right to positive and natural, so they are considered
as certain antipodes in the general consciousness, which, however, are the most practical and
significant types of legal thinking. We managed to trace the fact that it was the intensive
development of humanistic ideas in the context of new political and economic trends that led to
the emergence of the doctrine of “natural human rights”. Increasingly, among the general
public, the assertion that every individual from birth has certain rights that belong to a person
from its very nature, and therefore, no government can limit or cancel them, gained
popularity. The constitutional influence, according to most scholars, was based on the naturallegal
concept that defined the primacy of human rights by outlining the new possibilities for
the relationship between individuals and authorities.
