Justice and Recognition
On Axel Honneth and Critical Theory
The book focuses on two important concepts of social theory: justice and recognition, especially social justice and social recognition. It analyzes their importance, their relationship, and their social, legal, and global aspects. It shows that traditional theories and practices involve serious deficits in the area of justice and recognition, and it offers alternative approaches in terms of a critical theory of society. The book analyzes the crucial role that recognition plays in Axel Honneth’s critical theory of non-recognition.
