Its original aims were to provide a broad intellectual forum for academics, writers, artists, and postgraduates researching topics in Contemporary European philosophy, and to thereby become the region's premier reference point for people working within the diverse fields of Continental/European Philosophy.

Deranty-Beyond-Communication

Jean-Philippe Deranty, Beyond Communication: A Critical Study of Axel Honneth's Social Philosophy

Few thinkers have made such significant contribution to social and political thinking over the last three decades as Axel Honneth. His theory of recognition has rejuvenated the political vocabulary and allowed Critical Theory to move beyond Habermas. Beyond Communication is the first full-scale study of Honneth’s work, covering the whole range of his writings, from his first sociological articles to the latest publications. By relocating the theory of recognition within the tradition of European social theory, the book exposes the full depth and breadth of Honneth’s philosophical intervention. The book will be an indispensable resource for anyone interested in contemporary philosophy and the social sciences.
