Making modern identity: Charles Taylor's retrieval of moral sources
Graduate studies at Western
Critical Horizons 2 (1):93-125 (2001)
|Abstract||Charles Taylor's attempt to map the complexity and fullness of the modern identity has led him to recuperate its moral sources. This paper explores the zone of ontological contestation Taylor has engaged by defending a notion of the self that does not succumb to a narrowing or partiality of vision. Taylor's criticisms of Michel Foucault and Jürgen Habermas are examined to draw out the features of his project and its own limitations.|
