Chapter Summary

This chapter establishes a dialogue with social-philosophical and ethical approaches that explicitly deal with the question of how the structure of social interaction can be characterized as a structure of interpersonal relations and interpersonal difference. Therefore, the focus of attention will shift from the interaction and its consequences to the phenomenal field of interpersonal sociality. The chapter discusses theoretical concepts of social philosophy that focus on the potential for conflict in human social relationships. It focuses on social-philosophical concepts that describe the emergence of social forms of order based on the presentation and analysis of the interpersonal relation structure. The chapter provides a basic outline of two entirely different models for the relation of recognition.

Keywords:human sociality; interpersonal relation; interpersonal sociality; social interaction; social philosophy
