ETHICS OF RECOGNITION: AXEL HONNETH’S NORMATIVE CRITIQUE OF MODERN SOCIETY

John Paul J. Petrola.

Abstract
This paper is an expose of Axel Honneth’s theory of recognition. Using document analysis and hermeneutics of Axel Honneth’s seminal works and other resources on social pathology and struggle for recognition, this paper attempts to provide a deeper interpretation of Honneth 's theory of recognition as it tries to address the context of Honneth's critical theory, its three spheres of recognition, namely affection, rights and unity, which are required in order to gain concrete self-relationship, and its principle of disrespect as the spiritual grammar of the disenfranchised in the struggle for recognition. Furthermore, it offers a new alternative in doing critical analysis of the society.

Key words: Axel Honneth, Critical theory, Love, Rights, Solidarity, Modern Society
