The Philosophy of Mutual Recognition by Richard Gunn

Presented in a quite detailed fashion will be the significance of ‘recognition’ as a theme in the writings of G.W.F. Hegel and Karl Marx. When I talk to Ragged on Thursday 31 May 2018, I do not attempt to dwell on textual details alone but develop a discussion and dialogue around the text I present.

Such an attempt would run the risk of being dry as dust. The written version dwells on textual detail as background to get this part of my remarks out of the way. My main aim when I am talking is to give my audience a sense of why ‘mutual recognition’ is an important term for me. With luck, the textual focus in my written version frees me up to emphasise more personal and substantive points.

 

 

The events are all informal and you can come and go as you please.  There is some food provided and you are warmly welcomed to bring along an item of food to put on the table to share, and help take away some at the end.
