Abstract

The aim of this paper is to create a better understanding of issues related to the theme of recognition in its disciplinary fields of greater use and value – in particular in sociology, politics and philosophy. Recognition, as Taylor among others noted, constitutes a ‘vital human need’. Thus recognition cannot be an “end”, nor a “means” or “paradigm”, but a principle, a ‘fundamental reason’ a ‘basic [natural, moral and juridical] law’. The passage through Habermas and Ricoeur’s sociology of recognition stresses the centrality of the other and of intersubjective dynamism in the process of personal emancipation. In order to promote a real progress of individuals and society it is necessary that a philosophy of emancipation takes root, or to promote and spread the education of human rights, intercultural education and the education of self-control and self-discipline. In addition, it is necessary that a philosophy of communitarian participation and intersubjective recognition is prominent, in order to nourish social life and the reality of everyday life.
