Produktbeschreibung
Rainer Forst develops a critical theory capable of deciphering thedeficits and potentials inherent in contemporary political reality.This calls for a perspective which is immanent to social andpolitical practices and at the same time transcends them. Forstregards society as a whole as an 'order ofjustification' comprising complexes of different normsreferring to institutions and corresponding practices ofjustification. The task of a 'critique of relations ofjustification', therefore, is to analyse such legitimationswith regard to their validity and genesis and to explore the socialand political asymmetries leading to inequalities in the'justification power' which enables persons or groupsto contest given justifications and to create new ones. Starting from the concept of justification as a basic socialpractice, Forst develops a theory of political and social justice,human rights and democracy, as well as of power and of critiqueitself. In so doing, he engages in a critique of a number ofcontemporary approaches in political philosophy and criticaltheory. Finally, he also addresses the question of the utopianhorizon of social criticism.

Rezensionen
"In his ambitious masterpiece, Toleration in Conflict,Rainer Forst laid the groundwork for an innovative concept, theright to justification. Here, he has developed this prolific ideafurther in a systematic manner, establishing a compelling andoriginal political theory. Forst, a brilliant scholar, deserves hisreputation as one of the leading political philosophers of hisgeneration."
Jürgen Habermas

"In this inspiring book, Rainer Forst covers a wide range ofimportant problems in contemporary moral and political philosophy,including the relation between recognition and distribution, thenormative foundations of toleration and human rights, and the bestway to understand human dignity. His ambition is to resolve theseproblems in a unified way by reflecting on the conditions underwhich persons stand in relations of reciprocal and generaljustification to one another. Elegant and synoptic, this workexemplifies and advances the exciting confluence between Anglophoneand German political philosophy."
Thomas Pogge, Yale University

"Rainer Forst is one of the most penetrating social and politicaltheorists writing today. In these essays, he further elaborates histheory of 'reflexive justification' in relation to questions ofjust rule, legitimation, and domination. The essays sparkle withinsight and clarity."
Seyla Benhabib, Yale University
