Om boka

Axel Honneth is known for his critique of modern society centered on a concept of recognition. Jacques Ranciere has advanced a 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 philosophers explore the affinities and tensions between their perspectives to provoke new ideas for social and political change. While Honneth sees modern society as a field in which the logic of recognition provides individuals with increasing possibilities for freedom and transformation, Ranciere sees the social as a policing order and the political as a force that must radically assert equality. Their impassioned exchange advances critical theory's project of proposing new frameworks for justice.
