Editorial Reviews

Review

“For the past few decades Axel Honneth has been developing and defending the concept of recognition as the groundwork for a critical theory of society. In this collection of articles he extends his analysis of recognition in order to show how this informs social philosophy, moral theory, and political philosophy. Honneth has a knack for situating fundamental issues in historical perspective, outlining alternative strategies for dealing with them, and breaking new ground. This superb collection of essays is essential for anyone interested in recent developments in the scope and normative foundations of critical social theory.”

Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research


“This belated translation makes patent what many of us have suspected for a long time: Axel Honneth’s recognition theory constitutes one of the most ambitious philosophical undertakings of our time. These sparkling essays work out its implications for major issues in social philosophy, moral philosophy, and political philosophy.”

Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research

Book Description

Over the last decade, Axel Honneth has established himself as one of the leading social and political philosophers in the world today. Rooted in the tradition of critical theory, his writings have been central to the revitalization of critical theory and have become increasingly influential. His theory of recognition has gained worldwide attention and is seen by some as the principal counterpart to Habermas's theory of discourse ethics.In this important new volume, Honneth pursues his interests is practical philosophy by exploring the limits of a theory of justice oriented towards procedure. He argues that a formal, procedural theory of justice needs to be augmented by an account of the 'other' of justice which addresses the specific morality of social relations and the political conditions of a democratic formation of the will. By developing an original account of the 'other' of justice, Honneth is able to steer a course between Kantianism, communitarianism and poststructuralist ethics and to outline a practical social and political philosophy for the contemporary age.This new book by one of the leading social and political philosophers of our time will be of particular interest to students and scholars in social and political theory and philosophy.
