    Revisiting Contextualism in Political Theory: Putting Principles Into Context.Tariq Modood & Simon Thompson - 2018 - Res Publica 24 (3):339-357.
    In this article, we articulate and defend a contextual approach to political theory. According to what we shall call ‘iterative contextualism’, context has two important roles to play in determining what is required by justice. First, it is through the exploration and evaluation of multiple contexts that general principles are devised, revised and refined. Second, significant weight should be given to the norms to be found in specific contexts because the people affected by those norms strongly identify with them. Having (...)

    On the Circularity of Democratic Justice.Simon Thompson - 2009 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 35 (9):1079-1098.
    In this article, I argue that justice and democracy stand in a circular relationship: just outcomes emerge from democratic deliberations, but only if such deliberations meet the standards of justice. I develop my argument by engaging in a critical dialogue with Nancy Fraser. Contending that she fails to deal with the danger that unfair deliberative procedures and inadequate norms of justice may reinforce one another, I show what a satisfactory account of democratic justice would look like. Going beyond Fraser’s theory, (...)

    Is Redistribution a Form of Recognition? Comments on the Fraser–Honneth Debate.Simon Thompson - 2005 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 8 (1):85-102.
    It has been argued that, in political theory and political practice, a concern with the distribution of economic opportunities and resources has recently been displaced by a preoccupation with the acknowledgement of cultural identities and differences. In their jointly authored book, Redistribution or Recognition?, Nancy Fraser and Axel Honneth present their very different reactions to this development. While Fraser argues that redistribution and recognition are two mutually irreducible elements of an account of social justice, Honneth contends that a suitably differentiated (...)

    Parity of Esteem and the Politics of Recognition.Simon Thompson - 2002 - Contemporary Political Theory 1 (2):203-220.
    This article begins from the premise that, in contemporary conditions of immense cultural, social and ethnic diversity, a just and stable political order must be one in which all citizens are able to enjoy due recognition. In order to determine what form such a politics of recognition must take in practice, the article focuses on the case of Northern Ireland. More specifically, it examines the principle of ‘parity of esteem’ which forms the keystone of the Belfast Agreement of 1998. A (...)

    Parity of Participation and the Politics of Status.Chris Armstrong & Simon Thompson - 2009 - European Journal of Political Theory 8 (1):109-122.
    Over the past decade, Nancy Fraser has developed a sophisticated theory of social justice. At its heart lies the principle of parity of participation, according to which all adult members of society must be in a position to interact with one another as peers. This article examines some obstacles to the implementation of that principle. Concentrating on the contemporary status order, it asks two specific questions. Is it possible to produce a precise account of how the status order might need (...)

  9. Richard Rorty: Critical Dialogues.Matthew Festenstein & Simon Thompson (eds.) - 2001 - Polity.
    Richard Rorty is one of the most influential and provocative figures in contemporary intellectual life. He argues that many of philosophy's traditional concerns are redundant, and that the goal of inquiry should not be truth but human betterment. In this collection a distinguished team of scholars grapples with the implications of his writings for social and political thought. Avoiding mindless adulation or ritual denunciation, they offer careful but critical investigations of the meaning of Rorty's work for a range of important (...)

    Axiomatic Recursion Theory and the Continuous Functionals.Simon Thompson - 1985 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 50 (2):442-450.
    We define, in the spirit of Fenstad [2], a higher type computation theory, and show that countable recursion over the continuous functionals forms such a theory. We also discuss Hyland's proposal from [4] for a scheme with which to supplement S1-S9, and show that this augmented set of schemes fails to generate countable recursion. We make another proposal to which the methods of this section do not apply.

    Hate Speech and Self-Restraint.Simon Thompson - 2019 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 22 (3):657-671.
    In this article, my aim is to consider under what circumstances, and for what reasons, individuals may freely choose not to speak hatefully about others. Even if not threatened with legal sanction, why might they decide not to say something which they think they have good reason to say? My suggestion will be that there are various pro tanto reasons for individuals to restrain themselves from saying what they wanted to say. To be specific, I shall argue that such reasons (...)

    Priority Arguments in the Continuous R. E. Degrees.Simon Thompson - 1985 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 50 (3):661-667.
    We show that at each type k ≥ 2, there exist c-irreducible functionals of c-r.e. degree, as defined in [Nor 1]. Our proofs are based on arguments due to Hinman, [Hin 1], and Dvornikov, [Dvo 1].
