Chapter Summary

After briefly reconstructing Axel Honneth's revisitation of 'Reification: A Recognition-Theoretical View', this chapter highlights three problems that call for further reflection and perhaps for the integration of a slightly different set of premises. These three problems are: (1) the issue of the causal source of reification; (2) a certain tension arising between the 'priority of recognition' thesis and the understanding of validity underlying Honneth's argument; (3) the problem of the methodological import of the 'priority of recognition' thesis.

Keywords: Axel Honneth; priority of recognition; reification
