On Recognition

(Original title: K problematike uznania)
Filozofia, 64 (2009), 4, 356-361.
Type of work: Young Philosophy
Publication language: Slovak

The aim of the paper is to present the model of recognition as a substantial part of contemporary conceptions of justice. Its basis is the clarification of the theoretical background of the problem of recognition in the communitarian critique of liberalism. This critique embodies the dilemma of the relationship between equal approach (the principle of equality) and the recognition of differences. Attention is paid to the models of recognition in the theories of N. Fraser and A. Honneth and to how they can contribute to understanding the contemporary globalizing society.
