Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the themes of socialisation and microsociology in theory of recognition; this will involve a discussion of the concerns and proposals offered by Johanna Meehan, Carl-Göran Heidegren and (to some degree) Alessandro Ferrara. The author addresses the reflections on his writings on the social-theoretical status of the concept of recognition, for which the essays contributed by Emmanuel Renault and Nicholas H. Smith are representative. He then turns to the numerous concerns about the political-ethical thrust of my theory of recognition. In this connection the author deals with the contributions provided by Rainer Forst, Christopher Zurn and Alessandro Ferrara. It was most valuable for me to read the more survey-like essays by Joel Anderson and Jean Philippe Deranty, which continuously deliver material for the background of his rejoinder.

Keywords: Alessandro Ferrara; Johanna Meehan; microsociology; rejoinder; socialisation
