DZPhil 2014; 62(2): 260–278 Amy Allen Herrschaft begreifen: Anerkennung und Macht in Axel Honneths kritischer Theorie Abstract: Axel Honneth frames his contribution to the tradition of critical theory as an attempt to do justice to both the structures of social domination in contem- porary Western societies and the practical resources for their overcoming. This paper assesses how well Honneth’s critical theory, which centers on the notion of the struggle for recognition, accomplishes the first of these two tasks. I argue that Honneth has yet to offer a fully

117 • 5 • Axel Honneth’s Hegelianism I. Hegelian Origins In the following I want to express enthusiastic solidarity with Axel Hon- neth’s inheritance and transformation of several core Hegelian ideas, and to express one major disagreement. The disagreement is not so much with anything he says as it is with what he doesn’t say. It concerns his rejection of Hegel’s theoretical philosophy, and so his attempt to reconstruct Hegel’s practical philosophy without reliance on that theoretical philosophy. This is of course not a novel claim in the “Critical Theory

Honneths Theorie der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft 3.1 Zu Honneths Preisgabe der Korporation Die Probleme der hegelschen Korporationslehre sind eine Herausforderung für alle Autoren, die sich um eine Aktualisierung der hegelschen Rechtsphilosophie bemühen. Ein Vorschlag, mit dem Korporationsproblem umzugehen, stammt vom Präsidenten der Internationalen Hegel-Vereinigung und prominentesten Re- präsentanten der dritten Generation der Frankfurter Schule – von Axel Honneth. Er argumentiert in Leiden an Unbestimmtheit (2001), dass es keiner

6  Axel Honneth und das Anerkennungs paradigma Axel Honneths Werk steht für den bisher wahrscheinlich ambitioniertesten Versuch, Anerkennung zum expliziten Kernbegriff der Philosophie zu machen. Bei Honneth wird Anerkennung in den Mittelpunkt dessen erhoben, was manche Kommentatoren bereits als ein neues „Paradigma“ der kritischen Sozial- und Politischen Philosophie bezeichnen. In der Tradition der Kritischen Theorie der „Frankfurter Schule“ stehend, ist es Honneths Ziel, Elemente und Gedanken früherer Generationen der Frankfurter Schule – von Theodor
