Chapter Summary

This preliminary material presents the contents section and acknowledgements for the book Beyond Communication. A Critical Study of Axel Honneth's Social Philosophy. The book relocates the theory of recognition within the tradition of European social theory, and exposes the breadth of Honneth's philosophical intervention. Honneth's theory of recognition has attracted widespread attention since the publication of The Struggle for Recognition in Germany in 1992 and in 1995 in the English translation. The book focuses on the philosophical foundations of the mature theory of recognition, by delving in some detail into Honneth's readings of Hegel, Mead and the tradition of philosophical anthropology.

Keywords: Axel Honneth; social philosophy
