MetadataShow full item record
This article aims to highlight, in the form of brief general notes, the broad outlines of Honneth's critique of some aspects of Habermas' thought. Honneth's critique is guided by an investigation of the moral and normative criteria of social struggles, which Honneth appropriates in a critical fashion from the young Hegel. Honneth's central point is that the possibilities of interactive-communicative experience cannot be summarized in, or taken exclusively from, linguistic interaction, nor can the latter be pursued in its ideal aspect without the presupposition of the conflicting contexts in which it is always inserted.
