The author of this paper outlines Charles Taylor’s critique to the atomistic conception of human rights, on which the great part of liberal thought is based, arguing that this critique can be understood as a need of an anthropological foundation of Kant’s transcendentalism. This can be provided by a holistic ontology, which values human beings not only in their rationality but in all their aspects. Hence one can understand the urgency, pointed out by Taylor, of rethinking the political praxis in order to deal with democratic institutions’ legitimation crisis.
