Description
Summary:Hegel's criticism of Kant's philosophyof representation can be understood as a shift from representation (Vorstellung) to presentation (Darstellung). This shift affects not only theoretical but also practical philosophy. A basic idea of Hegel's Phenomenology is that freedom can only be realized if individuals present themselves as free. Hegel often calls this conflictual process of presentation "probation" or "verification" (Bewährung). In acts of practical verification, individuals do not simply assert their identity, but carry out a liberating break with given identities. This motive was very important for Adorno's philosophy of the non-identical, but was lost in the following generations of the Frankfurt School. The essay shows that it currently lives on in Jacques Rancière's theory of radical democracy. It argues that Rancière is closer to some important intuitions of early Critical Theory than Axel Honneth!s theory of recognition. To this end, it examines a discussion between Honneth and Rancière that took place in Frankfurt in 2009.
