In these lectures Professor Honneth will reconstruct the very different roles played by ‘recognition’ in the three different philosophical contexts of Britain (Hume, Smith, Mill), of France (Rousseau and Sartre), and of Germany (Kant, Fichte, Hegel).

Axel Honneth is Director of the Institut für Sozialforschung and Professor of Philosophy at the Goethe University of Frankfurt, and Jack C. Weinstein Professor of the Humanities in the Department of Philosophy at Columbia University, New York.

The Seeley Lectures are given every two years, and form the premier lecture series of the Centre for Political Thought. They are open to all, free of charge. There will be a drinks reception in Clare College after the first lecture, to which everyone is invited.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Centre for Political Thought series.
