Chapter Summary

The concept of mutual recognition seems to be a useful tool for addressing some of the problems modern societies with a large plurality of ethnic groups and religions are facing. This chapter makes a few brief comments on this reading and on the significance of recognition in Hegel's writings on objective spirit. It sketches what consider to be the main internal problems of Hegel's theory of recognition within his philosophy in general. The chapter then turns to some problems of recent theories of recognition and tries to justify my own position with regard to the role which the concept of recognition can play for contemporary social philosophy.

Keywords:Hegel; mutual recognition
