Chapter Summary

This book represents both a continuity and reconfiguration in the tradition of French social and critical philosophy. It deals more specifically, in one way or another, with Critical Theory understood in the narrower sense of German Critical Theory, associated with the tradition of the 'Frankfurt School' and its reception and interpretation in the current French context. The book defends the 'ethics of recognition' not only by providing conceptual and normative arguments in favour of its main premises and the resulting three-fold analytical grid. It addresses Durkheim's theoretical and political understandings of representation in ways that recognise the innovation, radicality and legacy of Durkheim's work, and also bring it in contact with neo- and post-Marxist currents.

Keywords: Durkheim's work; French Critical Theory; German Critical Theory; post-marxist
