  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 and Work in the Platform Economy: A Normative Reconstruction.Max Visser & Thomas C. Arnold - forthcoming - Philosophy of Management.
    The rise of the platform economy in the past two decades, have on the whole negatively affected working conditions, leading to growing concerns about the “human side” of organizations. To address these concerns, the purpose of this paper is to apply Axel Honneth’s recognition theory and method of normative reconstruction to working conditions in the platform economy. The paper concludes that the ways in which platform organizations function constitutes a normative paradox, promising flexibility and autonomy while at the same time (...)

  • Normative reconstruction and social memory: Honneth and Ricoeur.Terence Holden - 2020 - Continental Philosophy Review 53 (2):157-181.
    Normative reconstruction is a form of immanent critique which judges society in terms of values which are already institutionalized and implicitly expressed across everyday forms of interaction. Honneth, for his part, reads the value of social freedom into the normative grammar of modern institutions and anticipates further advances towards its institutionalization. Many have voiced doubts over the extent to which the model of normative reconstruction which Honneth proposes is solidly anchored in social reality: at worst, it is argued, this reality (...)

    In this article, after retracing the main lines of Honneth’s The Idea of Socialism, I address two objections to it. Firstly, I question the marked substantiality of Honneth’s proposed socialist ‘co...

  • 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 (...)

  • 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 (...)

  • Ecological Sensibility: Recovering Axel Honneth’s Philosophy of Nature in the Age of Climate Crisis.Odin Lysaker - 2020 - Critical Horizons 21 (3):205-221.
    ABSTRACT What is “critical” about critical theory? I claim that, to be “critical enough”, critical theory’s future depends on being able to handle today’s planetary climate crisis, which presupposes a philosophy of nature. Here, I argue that Axel Honneth’s vision of critical theory represents a nature denial and is thus unable to criticize humans’ instrumentalization as well as capitalism’s exploitation of nature. However, I recover what I take to be a missed opportunity of what I term as the early Honneth’s (...)

  • Justice in Education and Recognitive Justice.Teemu Eino Petteri Hanhela - 2018 - Studier i Pædagogisk Filosofi 7 (2):1-20.
    This paper focuses on a topical issue - the idea of ‘justice in education’ – developed by Krassimir Stojanov, among other recent educational justice theorists. Justice in education has to ask ‘educational questions about education’, which means that educational justice theory should be capable of dealing with educational practices, and constellations that are asymmetrical interaction orders. This requires, from the perspective of a child, criteria to distinguish between justified and unjustified educative demands towards responsibility and autonomy. This paper analyses forms (...)

  • 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 (...)
