Roland Theuas DS. Pada’s book Axel Honneth’s Social Philosophy of Recognition: Freedom, Normativity, and Identity has been reviewed in the latest edition of Kritike. The full review can be accessed here, and below is an indicative excerpt.
“[R]eaders who are uninitiated with Honneth or with his recognition theory will find in Pada’s book a helpful tool to get acquainted with the fundamental arguments, hermeneutic structure as well as the basic grammar and vocabulary of Honneth’s ethico-political thought. […] Pada’s text is a serious philosophic work which requires focus, deliberation and an expansive interpretive range. In his first foray into international book publication, Pada tried to establish himself as a reputable recognition theory scholar proven no less by his ability to navigate through Honneth’s extensive oeuvre. […] Recognition is a relatively novel theme in the Philippine intellectual scene. Pada, along with his fellow critical theory scholars, should be acknowledged for espousing this as a way of promoting the more vital causes of freedom and justice.”
