Redistribution Or Recognition?: A Political-philosophical Exchange

Portada
'Recognition' has become a keyword of our time, but its relation to economic 'redistribution' remains unclear.

Axel Honneth conceives recognition as the fundamental, over-arching moral category, potentially encompassing redistribution, while Nancy Fraser argues that the two categories are both fundamental and mutually irreducible. In alternating chapters the authors respond to each other's criticisms, and offer a lively dialogue on identity politics, capitalism and social justice. The volume is a dramatic riposte to those who proclaim the death of 'grand theory.'
