    Recognition as a Philosophical Practice: From “Warring” Attitudes to Cooperative Projects.Miriam Bankovsky - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):29-55.
    ABSTRACT What does it mean to practice a theory of recognition within the discipline of philosophy? Across an initially acrimonious French-German divide, Axel Honneth’s effort to recognise the value of contemporary French philosophy and social theory suggests that philosophy is a self-critical, outwardly oriented, and cooperative discipline. First, mobilising the idea of recognition in his own philosophical practise has permitted Honneth to notice non-deliberative aspects of social interaction that Habermas had overlooked, including the need for self-confidence and the need for (...)

    Recognition Beyond French-German Divides: Engaging Axel Honneth.Miriam Bankovsky & Danielle Petherbridge - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):1-4.

    An “Enchanted” or a “Fragmented” Social World? Recognition and Domination in Honneth and Bourdieu.Louis Carré - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):89-109.
    ABSTRACT Current debates on recognition and domination tend to be characterized by two polarized positions. Where the “anti-recognition” camp views recognition as a tool for establishing and reproducing relations of power, the “pro-recognition” camp conceives it as a way for dominated individuals and social groups to lay stake to intersubjective relations that are more just. At first glance, Honneth’s normative theory of recognition and Bourdieu’s critical sociology of domination also divide along these lines. Honneth takes the pro-recognition stance, criticizing the (...)

    The Norm, the Normal and the Pathological: Articulating Honneth's Account of Normativity with a French Philosophy of the Norm.Katia Genel - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):70-88.
    ABSTRACT Axel Honneth deploys the categories of normal and pathological to explain contemporary society in organic terms. This article concerns itself with how these medical references function in Honneth's work to explain the social world, and what their political implications are. For Honneth, social normality is a normative resource, even if it is only accessible through the study of pathology. Socially accepted norms are taken to reflect legitimate principles, with the early Honneth taking pathology as an individual psychic suffering that (...)

    Misrecognising Recognition. Foundations of a Critical Theory of Recognition.Steffen Herrmann - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):56-69.
    ABSTRACT According to Max Horkheimer, a critical theory of society has to fulfil two tasks: the elimination of social injustice and the critical reflection of its own conceptual means. Based on this definition, I argue that Axel Honneth’s critical theory of recognition is at risk of losing sight of the ambivalence of recognition which limits the scope of his analysis of social pathologies. By drawing on the concept of misrecognising recognition it can be shown that recognition itself is an ambivalent (...)

    Recognition Across French-German Divides: The Social Fabric of Freedom in French Theory.Axel Honneth & Miriam Bankovsky - 2021 - Critical Horizons 22 (1):5-28.
    ABSTRACT In his recent book, Recognition: A Chapter in the History of European ideas, Honneth has explained how he understands the French concept of recognition. This article places Honneth's latest interpretation in the context of his long-standing and evolving engagement with French theory over several decades. Honneth acknowledges his significant debt to a French tendency to view recognition as a problem for self-realisation. Bourdieu's and Boltanski's account of how ambitions become limited by the availability of capital and the internalisation of (...)
