Injustice, violence and social struggle. The critical potential of Axel Honneth's theory of recognition
Graduate studies at Western
Critical Horizons 5 (1):297-322 (2004)
|Abstract||Honneth's fundamental claim that the normativity of social orders can be found nowhere but in the very experience of those who suffer injustice leads, I argue, to a radical theory and critique of society, with the potential to provide an innovative theory of social movements and a valid alternative to political liberalism.|
