In this volume Axel Honneth deepens and develops his highlyinfluential theory of recognition, showing how it enables us bothto rethink the concept of justice and to offer a compelling accountof the relationship between social reproduction and individualidentity formation.Drawing on his reassessment of Hegel’s practical philosophy,Honneth argues that our conception of social justice should beredirected from a preoccupation with the principles of distributinggoods to a focus on the measures for creating symmetrical relationsof recognition. This theoretical reorientation has far-reachingimplications for the theory of justice, as it obliges this theoryto engage directly with problems concerning the organization ofwork and with the ideologies that stabilize relations ofdomination.In the final part of this volume Honneth shows how the theory ofrecognition provides a fruitful and illuminating way of exploringthe relation between social reproduction and identity formation.Rather than seeing groups as regressive social forms that threatenthe autonomy of the individual, Honneth argues that the‘I’ is dependent on forms of social recognitionembodied in groups, since neither self-respect nor self-esteem canbe maintained without the supportive experience of practisingshared values in the group.This important new book by one of the leading social philosophersof our time will be of great interest to students and scholars inphilosophy, sociology, politics and the humanities and socialsciences generally.

Ever since the publication of The Struggle for Recognition (1995), Axel Honneth has been pursuing the Hegelian theme of 'recognition' as originally outlined in Hegel's Phenomenology (1807). The latest instalment is Honneth's The I in the We: Studies in the Theory of Recognition. To a large extent, The I in the We is a continuation of Honneth's project. The book has fourteen chapters, divided into four parts: 'Hegel's Roots', 'Systematic Consequences', 'Social and Theoretical Applications', and 'Psychoanalytical Ramifications'.

Drawing on his reassessment of Hegel's practical philosophy, Honneth argues that our conception of social justice should be redirected from a preoccupation with the principles of distributing goods to a focus on the measures for creating symmetrical relations of recognition.

Axel Honneth is best known for his critique of modern society centered on a concept of recognition. Jacques Ranci?re has advanced an influential theory of modern politics based on disagreement. Underpinning their thought is a concern for the logics of exclusion and domination that structure contemporary societies. In a rare dialogue, these two philosophers explore the affinities and tensions between their perspectives to provoke new ideas for social and political change. Honneth sees modern society as a field in which the logic of recognition provides individuals with increasing possibilities.
