»Axel Honneth has found wide reverberation with his socio-philosophical work. (...) In the perception of the profession Honneth stands next to such philosophers as Martha Nussbaum, Robert Pippin, Avishai Margalit, Judith Butler. That his books find such considerable resonance betrays as much about the substance of theory as about the authorial talent of the writer.« Jürgen Habermas, Die Zeit

About

A consolidation of his theory of recognition.

The essays at hand address classical issues while at the same time shedding light on new fields for research. The backbone of all these articles is the wish to ensure the contemporary concept of justice benefits from ideas originally developed by Hegel. However, the author also aims to show that starting from a normative concept of recognition a link can be forged to themes in the social sciences, just as currently being attempted in a sociological diagnosis of the present day or psychoanalysis.
