  1. Expanding the Taxonomy of (Mis-)Recognition in the Economic Sphere.Joerg Schaub & Ikechukwu M. Odigbo - forthcoming - European Journal of Social Theory 22 (1):103-122.
    This article makes a contribution to debates in recognition theory by expanding the taxonomy of recognition in the economic sphere. It argues that doing justice to the variety of ways in which recognition is engaged in economic relationships requires: taking into consideration not just the recognition principle of esteem, but also need and respect; distinguishing a productive from a consumptive dimension with regards to each principle of recognition ; and identifying the specific economic relationship at stake. In this way, we (...)

  • Recognition, Disrecognition and Legitimacy: On the Normativity of Politics.Luiz Gustavo da Cunha de Souza - 2016 - Thesis Eleven 134 (1):13-27.
    This article discusses Axel Honneth’s recent theory of recognition, as exposed in his book Freedom’s Right. The argument defended here is that Honneth’s approach does not apprehend the normative implications of political conflicts, for it relies on what some critics have called normative history. Against that approach, this paper defends a model of social theory that is not committed to normative presuppositions of analysis. Rather, it seeks to understand how political struggles strive for normative authority. As an illustration of forms (...)

  • Social Criticism as Medical Diagnosis? On the Role of Social Pathology and Crisis Within Critical Theory.Peter J. Verovšek - 2019 - Thesis Eleven 155 (1):109-126.
    The critical theory of the Frankfurt School starts with an explanatory-diagnostic analysis of the social pathologies of the present followed by anticipatory-utopian reflection on possible treatments for these disorders. This approach draws extensively on parallels to medicine. I argue that the ideas of social pathology and crisis that pervade the methodological writings of the Frankfurt School help to explain critical theory’s contention that the object of critique identifies itself when social institutions cease to function smoothly. However, in reflecting on the (...)

  • Book Review: Critique as Social Practice: Critical Theory and Social Self-Understanding. [REVIEW]Neal Harris - 2019 - European Journal of Social Theory 22 (1):123-126.
    While the framework of social pathology remains a crucial tool for critical social theorists, there is confusion and debate surrounding the precise nature of the heuristic. The core argument of this article is that while the diagnosis of social pathology harbours radical potential as a critical device, recent developments have led to the ascendancy of a restrictive, recognition-cognitive understanding. I argue that this has displaced alternate, more radical framings. To illustrate the changing face of the heuristic, this article opens by (...)

  • Pathologies of Recognition: An Introduction.Neal Harris - 2019 - European Journal of Social Theory 22 (1):3-9.
    For generations, critical social theorists have turned to the framing of ‘pathology’ to provide a theoretical infrastructure for their critique. Such an approach famously undergirds much of the Frankfurt School’s canonical work. Axel Honneth, current chair of the Institute of Social Research, continues this tradition. While Frankfurt School approaches have largely tied pathology diagnosis to a critique of historically mediated reason, a plurality of alternate conceptions exist. With the ascendancy of an intersubjective approach to critical social theory, the pathologies of (...)

  • Hierarchy, Social Pathology and the Failure of Recognition Theory.Michael J. Thompson - 2019 - European Journal of Social Theory 22 (1):10-26.
    This article argues that the dynamics behind the generation of social pathologies in modern society also undermine the social-relational framework for recognition. It therefore claims that the theory of recognition is impotent in face of the kinds of normative power exerted by social hierarchies. The article begins by discussing the particular forms of social pathology and their relation to hierarchical forms of social structure that are based on domination, control and subordination and then shows how the internalization of the norms (...)

  • Two Ways of Being a Left-Heideggerian: The Crossroads Between Political and Social Ontology.Kurt C. M. Mertel - 2017 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 43 (9):966-984.
    This article is concerned with the question of the relative priority between political and social ontology within left-Heideggerianism, a tradition recently reconstructed by Oliver Marchart. Although the title seems to imply that this question is an open and live one within left-Heideggerianism – that the two paths at the crossroads have been clearly delineated when, in fact, the current predicament of left-Heideggerianism resembles more a one-way street – this is somewhat misleading: the identification of left-Heideggerianism with a post-foundationalist political ontology (...)

  • Aesthetic Freedom and Democratic Ethical Life: A Hegelian Account of the Relationship Between Aesthetics and Democratic Politics.Jörg Schaub - 2019 - European Journal of Philosophy 27 (1):75-97.
    This paper presents a novel Hegelian view of the relationship between aesthetics and democratic politics. My account avoids the drawbacks associated with approaches that reconceive all of the political in aesthetic terms or reduce the aesthetic to art. Instead, I maintain that the aesthetic is best understood as a distinct relationship of individual freedom. My argument proceeds by highlighting shortcomings of Honneth’s account of democratic Sittlichkeit and then addressing these impasses by integrating aesthetic freedom into the picture. The first two (...)

  • Malinchism as a Social Pathology.Gustavo Pereira - forthcoming - Sage Publications Ltd: Philosophy and Social Criticism.
    Philosophy & Social Criticism, Ahead of Print. Malinchism is a social phenomenon, distinctive of Latin America, which generates an internalisation of valuation patterns characterised by denying and underestimating local cultural expressions and considering foreign cultures as models of emulation. I defend malinchism can be understood as a social pathology, concept that I define as the imposition of a type of practical rationality on a social space alien to it. I also propose that malinchism is such a complex social phenomenon that (...)

  • Bridging the Gap Between Critical Theory and Critique of Power? Honneth’s Approach to ‘Social Negativity’.Marco Angella - 2017 - Journal of Political Power 10 (3):286-302.
    In this paper, I will analyze Axel Honneth’s theory against the background of some of the criticisms that Amy Allen levelled against it. His endeavor seems to partially compromise his ability to identify the domineering forms of power that the subject does not acknowledge consciously and affectively. I will argue that, despite some significant limitations, Honneth’s theory has become increasingly able to analyze social negativity since The struggle for recognition. Also, in both defending Honneth’s methodology and delimiting its scope, I (...)

  • At the Limit of the Concept: Logic and History in Hegel, Schelling, and Adorno.John M. Lumsden - unknown
    In this thesis I show how the challenges of producing a philosophy of history responsive to the negativity of the world benefits from working through the difficulties of G. W. F. Hegel’s systematic philosophy. By revealing the powerful and intricate ways that Hegel gives an illegitimate primacy to thought we can better appreciate the obstacles that face a philosophy which places new emphasis on the nonconceptual whilst recognising the genuine role of the concept. In the first half of this thesis (...)

  • Misdevelopments, Pathologies, and Normative Revolutions: Normative Reconstruction as Method of Critical Theory.Jörg Schaub - 2015 - Critical Horizons 16 (2):107-130.
    In this article I argue that the method of normative reconstruction that is underlying Freedom’s Right undermines Critical Theory’s aspiration to be a force that is unreservedly critical and progressive. I start out by giving a brief account of the four premises of the method of normative reconstruction and unpack their implications for how Honneth conceptualizes social pathologies and misdevelopments, specifically that these notions are no longer linked to radical critique and normative revolution. In the second part, I demonstrate that (...)

    Does theorising always presuppose a programme of justification? Does the Critical Theory of Adorno and Horkheimer do so? Do they claim it does? The answer should be a resounding ‘no’ to all three questions. In regard to the second and third question, I have sketched an argument to that effect in an earlier paper in this journal. In this paper, I offer a rejoinder to the critical reply offered by Stefan Müller-Doohm und Roman Yos on behalf of the Habermasian mainstream (...)

    This paper distinguishes between two main questions regarding the notion of privacy: “What is privacy?” and “Why do/should we value privacy?”. In developing a social-ontological recognitional model of privacy, it gives an answer to the first question. According to the SORM, Privacy is a second order quality of roles within social practices. It is a function of who is or should be recognized as a “standard authority”. Enjoying standard authority means to have the right to interpret and contest role behavior (...)

  • Reconstructing Erich Fromm’s ‘Pathology of Normalcy’: Transcending the Recognition-Cognitive Paradigm in the Diagnosis of Social Pathologies.Neal Harris - 2019 - Social Science Information 58 (4):714-733.
    Erich Fromm’s analysis of ‘pathological normalcy’ offers promising social-theoretical resources to help transcend the contemporary, ‘domesticated’, diagnosis of social pathologies. This article commences by briefly tracing the numerous limitations of the current orthodoxy, epitomised by the recognition-cognitive ‘pathologies of recognition’ approach. A sympathetic reconstruction of Erich Fromm’s diagnosis of pathological normalcy is then presented as a promising palliative. The strengths of Fromm’s social-theoretical framework are then outlined: Fromm’s scholarship presents a structure through which objectively inadequate and contradictory social conditions can (...)
