  • Dussell, Enrique D. The Underside of Modernity: Apel, Ricoeur, Rorty, Taylor, and the Philosophy of Liberation. Translated by Eduardo Mendieta, Eduardo Mendieta, editor. Atlantic Highlands: Humanities Pr, 1996. 
    Abstract:
    This book offers reconstructions and critiques of the thinking of Apel, Ricoeur, Taylor and Rorty, while profiling a noneurocentric and nonethnocentric appraisal of modernity. In agreement with Apel, Dussel lays down the foundations for a "transcendental economics" which elucidates the condition of possibility of any ethics, namely the production and preservation of life. Departing from Ricoeur, Dussel articulates a hermeneutics that is sensitive to the dimensions of text appropriation and disownment. Taylor's project is contextualized with reference to neo-Aristotelianism and neo-Hegelianism, on the one hand, and neo-Kantianism, on the other hand. In contrast, Dussel calls for the development of a third path between Kantian proceduralism and Hegelian substantivism, that is between Apelian and Habermasian "discourse ethics", and Taylor's ethics of authenticity. The book includes response essays from Apel and Ricoeur.
  • Fraser, Ian. Dialectics of the Self: Transcending Charles Taylor. Exeter: Imprint Academic, 2007. 
    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor is a philosopher concerned with morality and the nature of the identity of individuals and groups in the modern West. Dr. Fraser offers a critical evaluation of Taylor's conception of the self, and of its moral and political possibilities in modernity, from the perspective of Marxist dialectics, especially as developed in the writings of Bloch, Benjamin and Adorno. What distinguishes this book is its plainly critical intent, aiming more at criticism than exegesis. It includes an up-to-date evaluation of Taylor's most recent, and explicitly religious, work to which older introductions to his thinking had no access. (publisher).
  • Laitinen, Arto. Strong Evaluation without Moral Sources: On Charles Taylor's Philosophical Anthropology and Ethics. Berlin; New York: Walter de Gruyter, 2008. http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/38264
    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor (1931- ) is one of the leading living philosophers. This is the first extended study on the key notions of his views in philosophical anthropology and ethical theory. Firstly, Laitinen clarifies, qualifies and defends Taylor's thesis that transcendental arguments show that personal understandings concerning ethical and other values (so called "strong evaluation") is necessary, in different ways, for human agency, selfhood, identity and personhood. Secondly, Laitinen defends and develops in various ways Taylor's value realism. Finally, the book criticizes Taylor's view.
  • Lehman, Glen. Charles Taylor's Ecological Conversations: Politics, Commonalities and the Natural Environment. Palgrave Macmillan, 2015.
    Abstract:
    Central to the argument of the book are Charles Taylor's perspectives on authenticity and expressivism, which the author reads as a radical reworking of our understanding of being in the world and a starting point for rethinking the way individuals and communities ought to be dealing politically with ecological crises. Glen Lehman uses Taylor's work on liberalism, interpretivism and socialism to construct a bridge between democratic, ethical and ecological perspectives. The bridge developed involves a fusion between liberal and interpretivist ideas, establishing a common ground through which different values are addressed. Such a fusion of perspectives acts in a spirit that moderates the dominant anthropocentric attitude toward the natural environment.

  • Meijer, Michiel. Charles Taylor's Doctrine of Strong Evaluation: Ethics and Ontology in a Scientific Age. Rowman & Littlefield, 2017. [Forthcoming October 2017]
    Abstract:
    This book provides a comprehensive critical account of the philosophy of Charles Taylor. The author engages with the secondary literature on Taylor's work and suggests that some interpretations and criticisms have been based on misunderstandings of the ontological dimension of strong evaluation, while also developing a novel interpretation of Taylor's ontological thought. Meijer argues that a close examination of Taylor’s central concept of “strong evaluation” reveals both the potential of and the tensions in his entire thinking. The analysis pursues the development of Taylor’s thought from his very first philosophical papers (1958) until his most recent reflections in Retrieving Realism (2015) and The Language Animal (2016). It also examines in detail Taylor’s ambitious philosophical project: to connect arguments in philosophical anthropology, ethics, phenomenology, and ontology across the full range of his diverse writings. The book therefore specifically traces the links between Taylor’s arguments, with strong evaluation as their unifying leitmotif.

    Abstract:
    How (Not) to Be Secular is what Jamie Smith calls "your hitchhiker's guide to the present" — it is both a reading guide to Charles Taylor's monumental work A Secular Age and philosophical guidance on how we might learn to live in our times.   Taylor's landmark book A Secular Age (2007) provides a monumental, incisive analysis of what it means to live in the post-Christian present — a pluralist world of competing beliefs and growing unbelief. Jamie Smith's book is a compact field guide to Taylor's insightful study of the secular, making that very significant but daunting work accessible to a wide array of readers.   Even more, though, Smith's How (Not) to Be Secular is a practical philosophical guidebook, a kind of how-to manual on how to live in our secular age. It ultimately offers us an adventure in self-understanding and maps out a way to get our bearings in today's secular culture, no matter who "we" are — whether believers or skeptics, devout or doubting, self-assured or puzzled and confused. This is a book for any thinking person to chew on.

    Abstract:
    Moderne Moraltheorien lösen das Problem der Pluralisierung ethischer Anschauungen zunehmend durch eine radikale Trennung von universal Gerechtem und partikulär Gutem. Die vorliegende Studie kritisiert in Auseinandersetzung mit Ch. Taylor die mit dieser Tendenz verbundene Privatisierung und Marginalisierung des Guten als unvereinbar mit dem Selbstverständnis einer Moralt­heologie, für welche telosbezogene Vorstellungen konstitutiv sind und die dabei doch nicht auf einen universalen Gestaltungs­anspruch verzichten will.

    Abstract:
    Come può essere pensata oggi la politica come pratica del bene comune? A partire da questa domanda l’autore propone una lettura dell’opera di due fra i più noti filosofi viventi, mostrando l’attualità della critica “comunitarista” al liberalismo. Riconsiderando temi quali modernità, secolarizzazione, diritti e intersoggettività attraverso l’ottica di Charles Taylor e Alasdair MacIntyre si individuano i limiti della pratica politica liberale (e, seppur indirettamente, neoliberale) e si avanza la proposta di un modello alternativo che ha al suo centro l’idea del bene comune, come mezzo costitutivo per la vita buona di ciascun individuo.

    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor’s A secular age generated a great deal of attention—and has stimulated important debates—among a diverse range of scholars in sociology, history, politics, religious studies and to a lesser extent, anthropologists. much of the debate has focused on the implications of Taylor’s work for the so-called secularisation thesis and the place (or non-place) of religion in the so-called public sphere. the essays in this volume arise less out of such concerns and more from Taylor’s discussion of secularism in a third, ‘experiential’ sense. each paper addresses the question of what it is like to ‘believe’ (or not ‘believe’) in the modern world. among other things the authors of the essays published in this special issue are concerned to develop better understandings of the conditions under which belief and unbelief may be experienced as open, rather than closed, to the possibility of other ontological construals, thereby building on Taylor’s insights into the phenomenology of modern secularism.

    Abstract:
    In this paper, I explore what it would mean to pursue modes of ‘deeper engagement’ and how this might be done without abandoning the capacity for disengaged reasoning. charles taylor recognises disengaged reasoning as ‘one of the most important developments of the modern era’ and as essential to the pursuit of the good society, even though (like everything else) when taken to an extreme it corrupts or distorts the modes of being-in-the-world. in A secular age, taylor continues a long-running critique of disengaged reason and its contributions to the malaise of modernity, focusing especially on its conflictual relationship with religious belief and its central role in the disenchantment of the world. my objective here is to relativise and contextualise the relationship between disengaged and engaged modes of being, in part by exploring some of the ways in which we may be deeply engaged in the world and with one another while also employing the critical faculties that enable us to analyse dispassionately, amongst other things, theistic and other interpretations of being-in-the-world.

    Abstract:
    This paper examines stephen jay Gould’s concept of science and religion as ‘nonoverlapping magisteria’ with reference to spiritualism, specifically the case of the cottingley fairies. it argues that this is a case in which the magisteria are neither separate nor overlapping but instead exist in a far more complex relationship. through an exploration of this complexity, this paper offers discussion of the relationship between religion and science. in doing so, it problematises the common use of the terms ‘faith’ and ‘belief’ to characterise the experience of religious conviction.

    Abstract:
    ‘What does it mean to say that we live in a secular age?’ asks the philosopher charles taylor from a christian (catholic) perspective. this paper critiques key aspects of the way he seeks to answer the question, doing so from a methodologically agnostic anthropological standpoint. it focuses on three key elements of his argument: His construal of the problem of immanence, his account of secularisation and his treatment of science as an (inadequate) antidote to religion. the critique contains within it the ingredients for an alternative, anthropologically grounded approach to secularity, secularism and secularisation. in this spirit, it moves towards examining actually existing secularity as a syncretic phenomenon that is, in significant respects, definitive of modernity.

    Abstract:
    How does transcendental religion flourish when a secular frame sets conditions of belief? this question is put in a case study of the catholic newman society at the university of melbourne (1955–65). the society flourished in a secular university where charles Taylor’s ‘immanent frame’ was supposedly in place. explanations are found in the particular spirituality nurtured in the society and in the contingencies of australian catholicism in the mid-twentieth century, but also in the conventions of secular discourse in the university. conclusions drawn from the case are: (i) that there are elective affinities between some forms of transcendental religion and a secular context; (ii) that social science dichotomies that separate the religious and secular obviate appreciation of elective affinities and hybridisation; (iii) that there are parallels between ethnographic inquiry and inner-worldly spirituality that may help us develop a conversational ethnography.

    Abstract:
    This paper addresses issues raised in Taylor’s work concerning how communities may come to work in normatively secular ways. for taylor, it seems to be sufficient for believers (and nonbelievers) to acknowledge that their own ‘construals’ are not shared by everyone. however, this leaves open the question of how the acknowledgement of difference may be turned into respect. A common strategy is to require that faith-based truth claims are ‘bracketed out’, treating secular and religious discourse as ‘nonoverlapping magisteria’. this secularising strategy is, however, problematic on a number of counts. the article makes a case for a less confrontational, more cosmopolitan conversation between secular and religious reason in a postsecular age, examining in particular the possibilities for conversation between science and mysticism. it concludes that it is possible to retain a commitment to naturalism and yet also accept some of the most mystical of propositions, thereby establishing a bridge between ‘secular’ and ‘religious’ forms of reasoning.

    The article presents responses on several articles which includes one by karl smith on deep engagement, anna branfod on non-overlapping magisteria, and jean-paul baldacchino on the pre modern form of religious belief in a secular age. he agrees on smith's study and says that disengaged knowing is a valuable addition. he tells that branford's story is interesting but does not take into account the ways in which magisteria have overlapped and changed each other. he describes baldacchino study as showing his main thesis about a secular age.
  • Beyond the Secular West. Edited by Akeel Bilgrami. New York: Columbia University Press, 2016. http://cgt.columbia.edu/research/books/archive/beyond-secular-west/
    Abstract:
    What is the character of secularism in countries that were not pervaded by Christianity, such as China, India, and the nations of the Middle East? To what extent is the secular an imposition of colonial rule? How does secularism comport with local religious cultures in Africa, and how does it work with local forms of power and governance in Latin America? Has modern secularism evolved organically, or is it even necessary, and has it always meant progress? A vital extension of Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age, in which he exhaustively chronicled the emergence of secularism in Latin Christendom, this anthology applies Taylor’s findings to secularism’s global migration. Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na’im, Rajeev Bhargava, Akeel Bilgrami, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Sudipta Kaviraj, Claudio Lomnitz, Alfred Stepan, Charles Taylor, and Peter van der Veer each explore the transformation of Western secularism beyond Europe, and the collection closes with Taylor’s response to each essay. What began as a modern reaction to—as well as a stubborn extension of—Latin Christendom has become a complex export shaped by the world’s religious and political systems. Brilliantly alternating between intellectual and methodological approaches, this volume fosters a greater engagement with the phenomenon across disciplines.

    Abstract:
    Being a Muslim is foundational for me, it informs and guides everything I do or say in every aspect of my life. It is therefore inconceivable to me that I can hold any philosophical or ideological position that is inconsistent with my being a Muslim by my understanding of Islam. I have said that frequently regarding human rights, for instance, and affirm it here regarding secularism. It is from this perspective that I support the secular state for the possibility of being a better Muslim, and not secularism as a life philosophy that diminishes the public role of religion. “In.

    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor’sA Secular Ageis a book about the social imaginary of the North Atlantic and, to some extent, European modernity.¹ But much of its argument, and I believe the reason for its success, lies in its characterization of what the secular age leaves behind, what no longer exists, perhaps what it has lost. It is a feature of Taylor’s work that he enables us to experience the In Charles Taylors Landkarte, edited by Ulf Bohmann, Gesche Keding and Hartmut Rosa. Transition from one kind of life-world to another. Among these lost worlds, he discusses “early religions” that still exist in some parts of the world. This essay must be viewed as.

    Abstract:
    Gandhi never really came to any detailed grip with the concept of class, to say nothing of “class struggle,” in the remarkable politics he espoused and generated. Yet I believe that there is a radical and “left-wing” Gandhi in a broad but genuine sense of that term. But if that is so, then there are interpretative tasks ahead. We need to reconcile this Gandhi with the ease with which he seems susceptible, and rightly susceptible, to an antimodernist reading.
    I would like in this short essay to suggest that if we follow a method that is superbly exemplified in illuminating.

    Saad ibn Abī Waqqās is one of theSahaba, which in Islamic terminology means the early companions and disciples of the prophet Muhammad, those who were the first to believe in his mission and to follow him at a time when doing so meant persecution, exile, and the possibility of being killed. Saad, who is said to have been the seventeenth person to embrace the new faith, when he was seventeen, holds a particular place among those who wrote the golden legend of the early days of Islam. According to the narratives of those early times, he resisted the moral.

    Abstract:
    The sparseness of the title of Charles Taylor’s work is itself an incitement to further thinking. The work purports to be a description, analysis, and reflection on “a secular age”—but it is reticent about the question of space. It offers a story of a great transformation—but where does this narrative happen? There are two ways of taking this unspoken indeterminate site of the secular age. A dominant strand of social theory, aligned to powerful narratives of modernization, would view in it a double story: a story of a historic transformation that really occurred in some “Western societies”—though.

    Abstract:
    My object in this essay is to present elements for a study of radical Mexican secularism in a fashion that is in critical dialogue with Charles Taylor’s account of secularism. It is a double-edged endeavor that seeks, on one hand, to explore the pertinence of some of Taylor’s core concepts for the analysis of secularism in Mexico and Ibero-America and, on the other, to try to place that region in relation to the historical arc that Taylor conceptualizes and explicates. My contribution is offered with the aim of identifying a few general conceptual and historical parameters in the case, and.

    Abstract:
    For many of the most influential “modernization” and “secularism” theorists, religion is “traditional and irrational” and associated with authoritarianism; they see it as the binary opposite of “modernization and rationality,” which they view as a necessary path to democratization.¹ Indeed, one of the most influential English-language political philosophers in the last half of the twentieth century, John Rawls, in his early work went so far as to argue that, in the name of arriving at an “overlapping consensus,” religious arguments should be “taken off the public agenda.”² Charles Taylor in his book, A Secular Age, discusses the complex historical processes.

    Abstract:
    We live in a world in which ideas, institutions, art styles, and formulae for production and living, circulate among societies and civilizations that are very different in their historical roots and traditional forms. Parliamentary democracy spread outward from England, among other countries, to India. And the practice of nonviolent civil disobedience spread from its origins in Gandhi’s practice to many other places, including Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights movements, to Manila in 1983, and eventually to the Velvet and Orange revolutions of our time.
    But these ideas and forms don’t just change place as solid blocks; they are also.

    Abstract:
    Perhaps it might help to sharpen some points that emerge from this interesting collection of essays, or at least to bring them more clearly into focus, if I comment on the descriptions they offer of their respective periods and regions. I’ll try to do this by contrasting them with the basically North Atlantic trajectory to a secular age, as I understand this.
    Sudipta Kaviraj raises the issue, at several points in his paper, why the existence of religious difference with intense rivalry and intellectual polemic didn’t lead to a general decline of religion. One might expect this kind of conflictual,.

    Abstract:
    My aim in this contribution is to focus on four moments in history that may illuminate the nature of Confucianism from a comparative perspective and in conversation with Charles Taylor’s work on the secular age. Establishing a definition of Western secularism and then searching for this object in the societies of China, India, and elsewhere does not make much sense, since it will only establish that “they do not have it” or “they have something that resembles it but is different.” Comparing different traditions of transcendence and immanence as well as their political dynamic can help us to move beyond.

    Abstract:
    La notion d'identité est au centre de la conscience moderne, mais elle paraît en même temps si problématique, entretenant à la fois des confusions intellectuelles déplorables et des passions politiques dangereuses, que beaucoup de penseurs contemporains n'y voient qu'une fiction idéologique et préfèrent s'en passer dans leur analyse des représentations qui s'en réclament. C'est l'un des principaux mérites de charles taylor d'avoir transformé cette notion embrouillée en point de départ d'une interrogation rigoureuse sur la modernité comme expérience historique. les textes réunis dans ce volume, issus d'un colloque consacré à l'auteur des sources du moi, témoignent de la fécondité de cette interrogation dans ces domaines extrêmement variés, allant de la recherche conceptuelle la plus abstraite à la discussion de problèmes politiques aussi actuels que l'avenir de l'etat-providence ou le statut des minorités.

    Abstract:
    Charles taylor is currently one the most renowned and influential contemporary philosophers. he is also widely quoted and discussed both in the social sciences and humanities. taylor earns this attention through his remarkable capacity for presenting his conceptions in the broadest possible intellectual and cultural context. his philosophical intuition is fundamentally antinaturalistic, and tends toward developing broad syntheses without a trace of systematizing thinking, or any anarchic postmodernist methodology. his thought unites the past with the present, while culture is treated as a broad mosaic of discourses. religion, art, science, philosophy, politics and ethics are all fields through which the canadian philosopher deftly moves about in his search for their hidden structures and deepest sense. taylor's philosophical output is prodigious. recently, as his monumental study A secular age (2007) indicates, he has been concentrating much of his attention on the problem of secularization..
    the selection of contributions in the current volume proffer a penetrating cross section of taylor's thought. they are derived from a conference held in october 2008 in lublin, poland although some of the articles are focused on a reconstruction of the philosopher's concepts, most either engage in a polemic with elements of his thought or find inspiration in it for their own reflections. the contributions are grouped in four parts: 1) philosophy and the modern self; 2) the problem of secularization; 3) between liberalism and communitarianism; and 4) language, literature, and culture.

    Abstract:
    Being formed through learning a practice is best understood within a constitutive theory of meaning as articulated by charles taylor. disengaged views of the person cannot account for the formative changes in a person’s identity and capacities upon learning a professional practice. representational or correspondence theories of meaning cannot account for formation. formation occurs over time because students actively seek and take up new concerns and learn new knowledge and skills. engaged situated reasoning about underdetermined practice situations requires well-formed skillful clinicians caring for particular patients in particular situations.

    Abstract:
    Genomics has brought biology, medicine, agriculture, psychology, anthropology, and even philosophy to a new threshold. in this new context, the question about “what is human in humans” may end up being answered by geneticists, specialists of technoscience, and owners of biotech companies. the author defends, in this article, the idea that humanity is at risk in our age of genetic engineering, biotechnologies, and market-geared genetic research; he also argues that the values at the very core of our postgenomic era bring to its peak the science-based ideology that has developed since the time of galileo, newton, descartes, and harvey; finally, it shows that the bioindustry has invented a new genomythology that goes against the scientific evidence produced by the research in human sciences in which life is interpreted as a language.

A synthesis of taylor's relevant work is presented. taylor has argued for a conception of the human sciences that regards human life as meaningful–deriving meaning from surrounding horizons of significance. an overview of the interdisciplinary articles in this issue is presented. this collection advances our thinking in the philosophy of medicine as well as the philosophy of charles taylor.

    Abstract:
    Medicine is unique in being a combination of natural science and human science in which both are essential. therefore, in order to make sense of medical practice, we need to begin by drawing a clear distinction between the natural and the human sciences. in this paper, I try to bring the old distinction between the geistes and naturwissenschaften up to date by defending the essential difference between a realist explanatory theoretical study of nature including the body in which the scientist discovers the causal properties of natural kinds and the interpretive understanding of human beings as embodied agents which, as charles taylor has convincingly argued, requires a hermeneutic account of self-interpreting human practices.

    Abstract:
    Many people feel uneasy about enhancement technologies, yet have a hard time explaining why. this unease is often less with the technologies themselves than about the desires and aspirations that they express. I suggest here that we can diagnose the source of that unease by looking at three themes that emerge in Taylor’s writings about the making of the modern self: The importance of social recognition, the ethics of authenticity, and the rise of instrumental reason.
  • Kirmayer, Laurence J. "Multicultural Medicine and the Politics of Recognition." Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 36, no. 4 (August 01, 2011): 410-423.
    Abstract:
    Health care services increasingly face patient populations with high levels of ethnic and cultural diversity. cultures are associated with distinctive ways of life; concepts of personhood; value systems; and visions of the good that affect illness experience, help seeking, and clinical decision-making. cultural differences may impede access to health care, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment. the clinical encounter, therefore, must recognize relevant cultural differences, negotiate common ground in terms of problem definition and potential solutions, accommodate differences that are associated with good clinical outcomes, and manage irresolvable differences. clinical attention to and respect for cultural difference (a) can provide experiences of recognition that increase trust in and commitment to the institutions of the larger society, (b) can help sustain a cultural community through recognition of its distinct language, knowledge, values, and healing practices, and (c) to the extent that it is institutionalized, can contribute to building a pluralistic civil society.

    Abstract:
    This paper provides a brief overview and critique of the dominant objectivist understanding and use of illness narrative in enlightenment (scientific) medicine and ethics, as well as several revisionist accounts, which reflect the evolution of this approach. in light of certain limitations and difficulties endemic in the objectivist understanding of illness narrative, an alternative phronesis approach to medical ethics influenced by charles Taylor’s account of the interpretive nature of human agency and language is examined. to this end, the account of interpretive medical responsibility previously described by schultz and carnevale as “clinical phronesis” (based upon Taylor’s notion of “strong” or “radical evaluation”) is reviewed and expanded.the thesis of this paper is that illness narrative has the ability to benefit patients as well as the potential to cause harm or iatrogenic effects. this benefit or harm is contingent upon how the story is told and understood. consequently, these tales are not simply “nice stories,” cathartic gestures, or mere supplements to scientific procedures and decision making, as suggested by the objectivist approach. rather, they open the agent to meanings that provide a context for explanation and evaluation of illness episodes and therapeutic activities. this understanding provides indicators (guides) for right action. hence, medical responsibility as clinical phronesis involves, first, the patient and provider’s coformulation and cointerpretation of what is going on in the patient’s illness narrative, and second, the patient and provider’s response to interpretation of the facts of illness and what they signify–not simply a response to the brute facts of illness, alone. the appeal to medical responsibility as clinical phronesis thus underscores the importance of getting the patient’s story of illness right. it is anticipated that further elaboration concerning the idea of clinical phronesis as interpretive illness narrative will provide a new foundation for medical ethics and decision making.
  • Stoljar, Natalie. "Informed Consent and Relational Conceptions of Autonomy." Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 36, no. 4 (August 01, 2011): 375-384.
    Abstract:
    The received view in medical contexts is that informed consent is both necessary and sufficient for patient autonomy. this paper argues that informed consent is not sufficient for patient autonomy, at least when autonomy is understood as a “relational” concept. relational conceptions of autonomy, which have become prominent in the contemporary literature, draw on themes in the thought of charles taylor. I first identify four themes in taylor's work that together constitute a picture of human agency corresponding to the notion of agency implicit in relational accounts of autonomy. drawing on these themes, I sketch two arguments against the position that informed consent secures autonomy. the first is that informed consent is an “opportunity” concept whereas autonomy is an “exercise” concept; the second is that informed consent requires merely weak evaluation and not strong evaluation. on taylor's analysis of agency, strong evaluation is required for agency and for autonomy.
  • Weinstock, Daniel M. "How should Political Philosophers Think of Health?" Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 36, no. 4 (August 01, 2011): 424-435.
    Abstract:
    The political philosophy of health care has been characterized by considerable conceptual inflation in recent years. first, the concept of health that lies at its core has come to encompass ever-increasing aspects of individuals’ existences. and second, the emergence of the public health perspective has increased the range of resources relevant to health equity. this expansion has not been without cost. the decision to include more rather than less within the ambit of “health” is ultimately a moral/political rather than an ontological or metaphysical one, and there are several ethical reasons to define the scope of theories of distributive justice in health narrowly.

  • Multiculturalism: Examining the Politics of Recognition. Amy Gutmann, ed. (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1994).
    Abstract:
    A new edition of the highly acclaimed book multiculturalism and "the politics of recognition," this paperback brings together an even wider range of leading philosophers and social scientists to probe the political controversy surrounding multiculturalism. Charles Taylor's initial inquiry, which considers whether the institutions of liberal democratic government make room--or should make room--for recognizing the worth of distinctive cultural traditions, remains the centerpiece of this discussion. it is now joined by Jürgen Habermas's extensive essay on the issues of recognition and the democratic constitutional state and by K. Anthony Appiah's commentary on the tensions between personal and collective identities, such as those shaped by religion, gender, ethnicity, race, and sexuality, and on the dangerous tendency of multicultural politics to gloss over such tensions. These contributions are joined by those of other well-known thinkers, who further relate the demand for recognition to issues of multicultural education, feminism, and cultural separatism.

    Abstract:
    Probably no book published in the last decade has been so ambitious as Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age. He seeks nothing less than to account for the spread of secularism and decline of faith in the last 500 years. Now a remarkable roster of writers—including Carl Trueman, Michael Horton, and Jen Pollock Michel—considers Taylor’s insights for the church’s life and mission, covering everything from healthcare to liturgy to pop culture and politics. Nothing is easy about faith today. But endurance produces character, and character produces hope, even in our secular age.

    Abstract:
    This article argues that a useful way of understanding charles taylor's political theory is to classify it as postliberal. this is in recognition of the synthesis between certain elements of liberalism and certain elements of communitarianism that taylor effects. the paper defines the postliberal debate as one which asks which aspects of traditional liberalism should be preserved and which ones jettisoned. it is further contended that the conception of postliberalism provides not just an angle on taylor's work but also provides a handle on a slice of contemporary anglo-american political theory.
  • Ikäheimo, Heikki. "Taylor on Something Called 'Recognition'." Acta Philosophica Fennica 71 (2002): 99-111.
    Abstract:
    In the discussions on something called 'recognition' it is important to distinguish between three senses of the word: (1) identification of anything/-one, numerically as something/-one, and qualitatively as of some kind; (2) acknowledgement of norms, reasons, commitments, responsibilities, faults, etc.; and (3) recognitive attitudes of love, respect and esteem towards persons. it is also useful to distinguish between a recognizee-insensitive and a recognizee-sensitive conception of (3) recognition, and, following the latter conception, between valuing, holding in esteem and being recognized. with the help of these distinctions I analyze what it is exactly that charles taylor discusses under the catchword 'recognition' in "the politics of recognition".

    Abstract:
    This paper outlines and defends a 'culturalist' but nevertheless nonrelativistic theory of values. culturalist moral realism is cognitivist concerning our ordinary moral and evaluative reactions and responses to situations: Genuinely correct and incorrect (or better and worse) judgments are possible. these theses are reconstructed from charles taylor's writings, but authors like john McDowell and joseph raz hold similar views. not unimportantly, charles taylor would add a further thesis claiming that there are 'constitutive goods' which constitute the goodness of 'life goods', or which in other words bring about the fact that evaluative properties have value. this paper tries to show the coherence and appeal of culturalist moral realism without taking any stand on this further claim about constitutive goods.

    Abstract:
    In this paper I argue that moral realism does not, pace charles taylor, need "moral sources" or "constitutive goods", and that adding these concepts distorts the basic insights of what can be called "cultural" moral realism. yet the ideas of "moral topography" or "moral space" as well as the idea of "ontological background pictures" are valid, if separated from those notions. what does taylor mean by these notions?

    Abstract:
    The purpose of this paper is to reflect on charles taylor's contribution to the general debate over modernity. I start by taking a look at some general themes in this debate and situate taylor in it accordingly. I take up taylor's criticism for some of the current ways of theorizing modernity and then sketch his own alternative. taylor can be credited with making an important contribution to the "moral turn" in the discourse of modernity, as well as with delineating a broad view of the richness and complexity of the modern moral culture. I end the article with some contemporary challenges facing taylor's view.

    Abstract:
    This essay reconsiders charles taylor's discussion of transcendental argumentation and his reading of wittgenstein's later philosophy, particularly the private language argument, as an example of such argumentation. taylor's criticism of naturalism and his defense of what may be labeled a "culturalist" philosophical anthropology are crucially related to this argumentative strategy. the problem of the factual grounding of normativity is explored as a major challenge for taylor's wittgensteinian view.

    Abstract:
    The interview covers almost the whole range of charles taylor's political and intellectual endeavor. it starts with a discussion of his new project of exploring "modern social imaginaries" and of his interpretation of 9/11. this is followed by a critical re-examination of key concepts of social criticism, such as equality, justice, alienation or recognition, and of the role intellectuals can play today. the focus then shifts to taylor's political and intellectual background and his sources of inspiration, such as E.P. thompson, merleau-ponty or dostoyevsky. the last part seeks a clarification of contested aspects of taylor's philosophical approach such as his notions of culture, identity, personhood or strong evaluation and the somewhat uneasy relationship between moral realism and radical self-interpretation.

    Abstract:
    Charles taylor's opposition to representationalist conceptions of the tasks of philosophy is shared by several other philosophical movements, most notably pragmatism and contemporary advocates of hegelian idealism strongly influenced by pragmatism (e.g., robert pippin). the article considers what, if anything, the particular antirepresentationalist strategy adopted by taylor adds to these other forms of nonrepresentationalism. in this way it attempts to throw new light on the significance of taylor's project today.

    Abstract:
    This is the first comprehensive evaluation of charles taylor's work and a major contribution to the leading questions in philosophy and the human sciences as they face an increasingly pluralistic age. charles taylor is one of the most influential moral and political philosophers of our time, and these essays address topics in his thought ranging over the history of philosophy, truth, modernity and postmodernity, theism, interpretation, the human sciences, liberalism, pluralism and difference.

Transitions. his approach to articulating strong evaluations and cultural self-understanding is illustrated by articulating clinical know-how and caring practices in clinical nursing. an atomistic, monological understanding of the self is critiqued. the paper argues that caring practices are grounded in shared public, historical worlds of human connections, common meanings, social practices and skills. A nursing ethic, "following the body's lead," is articulated as a notion of good and skillful practice that counters a technological imperative.

In English. http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/CBO9780511621970.007
    Abstract:
    In 'sources of the self', charles taylor argues that one characteristic feature of modernity is the "affirmation of ordinary life." this affirmation is altogether worthy and should be affirmed. but is the affirmation of ordinary life really that secure? the author argues that ordinary life is under extraordinary pressure to succumb to certain features of late modernity. these include a growing 'scientization' and 'technologization' of human reproduction, up to and including modern eugenics that would intervene in the process of human reproduction in order to guarantee 'perfect' outcomes. philosophically, such developments are accompanied by rampant subjectivism. in the sphere of public life, the pressure put upon citizens by states, up to and including the wrenching of ordinary life in the name of political necessity, continues unabated, only partially checked by such counter-pressures as human rights. altogether, then, the affirmation of ordinary life is less secure than taylor would have it.

    Abstract:
    This essay (a contribution to a volume about the work of charles taylor) examines taylor's interpretation of descartes as the philosopher who champions the idea of a disengaged self, which can find no external guarantees of truth and morality, and must seek them in its own powers of reasoning. I argue that taylor oversimplifies descartes's epistemological and ethical positions, and that this oversimplification potentially undermines his overarching view that the history of philosophy charts the emergence of a disenchanted self, yearning for sources of moral authority.

    Abstract:
    I argue that charles taylor's conception of "strong evaluation" must be conceived as a normative rather than as a descriptive view of human agency. it is therefore possible for social conditions to be more or less propitious to the development of this ideal. I argue that a liberal society governed by the principle of neutrality is more likely to foster the ideal of strong evaluation than are the communitarian arrangements for which taylor has expressed a preference. I argue, finally, that taylor's arguments against liberal neutrality fail, because they do not recognize the neutrality can itself be the reflection of an ethical ideal.

    Abstract:
    Taking advantage of the way in which charles taylor hinges his account of the rise of modern secularity around the year 1500, this article attempts a reassessment of some aspects of early modern thought which have been prominent in recent studies. in particular, it focuses on the thin boundary between illusion and reality, on the lure of scepticism, and on the changing role of the aristotelian notion of phronêsis in human action.

    Abstract:
    This article considers three aspects of taylor's A secular age: The issue of the status and authority of theological insights derived from sociological analyses; the irresolvable ambiguities of secularity, where it marks the disappearance of religion but inadvertently affirms its persistence; and the properties of nostalgia and memory that unexpectedly shape post-secularity and the forms of enchantment it seeks.

    Abstract:
    Following the fall of mainstream secularization paradigms, this article suggests opportunities arise for considering social and political life as ?religious? phenomena and, specifically, for using taylor's pregnant notion of ?social imaginaries? as a bridge between ?secular? and ?post-secular? social science. thus, themes implicit in A secular age are made explicit and used to challenge how social science is done in ?post-secular? times.

    Abstract:
    This article analyses three of taylor's principal theoretical moves: His basic account of secularity and related rejection of secularist ?subtraction stories?; his comprehension of historico-empirical realities in the light of a sort of philosophy of history; and his presentation of the transcendental quality of the experience of ?fullness?. motivated to contest taylor's framing of the ?unbeliever? as spirituality deprived and intellectually complacent, the coherence, content and rhetorical overkill of his argumentation in each of these areas is questioned.

    Abstract:
    Taylor addresses A secular age to an ?us? identified with the west. in this way the book is particularised and entered into a conversation. it is a prime example of the multiculturalism taylor acclaims. however the paper argues that the commitment to multiculturalism forces A secular age to downplay the importance of catholicism as an institution. it is contended that the book is a great work of catholicity (small "c") but in need of more catholicism (capital "C").

    Abstract:
    The author of this article confirms charles taylor's thesis that despite the growing spread of unbelief in modern society, i) religion remains an independent variable, ii) a creative ?back and forth? continues to occur between secular wisdom and religious faith, and iii) the difference between these two does not necessarily produce opposition between them. the author also agrees with the importance taylor attaches to the emergence of immanent humanism. yet the author disagrees with taylor's account of contemporary culture and religion as expressions of people's quest of identity; the article demonstrates instead that religion participates in all contemporary social movements.

    Abstract:
    In modern societies and cultures today, religion is widely perceived as basically even if not merely trivially ?optional.? this is a contention strongly advocated by charles taylor, most notably in his monumental A secular age. throughout his career, taylor has made the question of religion in modernity the core of his interests. in his most recent work, A secular age, taylor addresses challenging issues of what he calls the ?contemporary spiritual experience? and speaks to ?the spiritual hungers and tensions of secular modernity.? I critically consider three aspects of this immensely suggestive if not uncontroversial work: (1) I examine whether there is in fact a possible reversibility or revisability to the so-called ?optional? nature of belief that taylor thinks is characteristic of the secular age; (2) I scrutinize taylor's notion of ?immediacy? of belief in the same milieu; (3) I interrogate his use of the term ?fullness? in delineating the temper of the secular age.

    Abstract:
    While we are deeply appreciative of taylor's A secular age, we nonetheless worry that his use of the immanent/transcendent duality may introduce a certain kind of christian constantinianism that he wants to disavow. in particular, we worry that the immanent/transcendent duality is far too formal in its character. in order to develop this concern, we draw on talal asad's account of the secular to suggest how liturgy may provide an alternative way of understanding as well as challenging taylor's worries about ?the immanent frame.?

    Abstract:
    Some philosophers (stephen mulhall, peter winch, and D.Z. phillips) complained that in sources of the self charles taylor allowed his christian allegiance to ?peep through?, whereas, as a philosopher, he should have done justice to other views than his own, without taking sides. they would no doubt have protested even more about A secular age. reading these two books in the context of his previous work it becomes hard to accuse taylor of failing to expound fairly views he opposes, especially regarding british empiricism. moreover, how disinterested can critical genealogy of religion in the west ever be?

    Abstract:
    In this essay I explore, from a theologian's perspective, two questions which arise from the taylor's development of a genre addressing two quite different audiences: The social scientists and the theologians. in particular, it examines the relationship between theology and history and the relationship between believing, an act of faith and the imaginary. while accepting the conditions for believing in the age of enchantment differ from those in a secular and disenchanted age, the essay concludes by questioning whether an act of faith was any less difficult and by pointing out that if it was less difficult then theologically we need a more nuanced account of the relationship between god and history.

    Abstract:
    To analyse and explain charles taylor's understanding of secularity in terms of "optionality" or "plurality" and to illuminate the nature of the hypothetical stance and the virtuality of beliefs it entails requires one to engage in a larger than empirical and, as it were, deeper than merely historical inquiry, one that is, if not metaphysical, then at least ontological or preontological. the conditions of the secular age should, on this view, not be confused with the epistemological or, more broadly normative, criteriological terms that categorize experience and the search for the spiritual "fullness". as a consequence, neither specific elements or forms of belief nor their successive repudiation, neither historical nor empirical, neither sociological nor psychological findings will ever allow us to determine where or when, exactly, secularity begins, let alone suspect whether (where or when) it might very well come to an end. what is required is, rather, to take a step back and to investigate why and how the advocacy of "public secularity" and the broader assumption of the eventual practical and existential demise or irrelevance of faith -- which has been falsified by recent trends and current affairs in "global religion" -- could have emerged as a theoretical construct (and communis opinio) at all.

    Abstract:
    The essay explores charles taylor's "A secular age" and focuses on following shortcomings of the work: Is the separation of the sacred and the profane a loss or an intensivation of religiosity? does the kantian universalist ethics not represent an increased commitment to basic christian ideas? must not even atheism be interpreted as a step in the self-unfolding of the divine? taylor's remarkable work is interpreted as being too strongly committed to catholic personalism and not sufficiently familiar with the protestant theological tradition.

    Abstract:
    This article is my introduction, as the editor, to a book symposium on charles taylor's 'A secular age'. I point out that taylor's book focusses on "the entstehungsgeschichte of exclusive humanism": On the historical genesis, that is, of "the immanent frame" that is "common to all of us in the modern west". this "immanent frame", taylor claims, "some of us want to live as open to something beyond", but "some live as closed". in the book symposium this thesis is discussed from various perspectives (pragmatism, deconstruction, post-hegelian thought) by hans joas, hent de vries, and vittorio hösle.

    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor’s conception of the relationship between democracy and social creativity developed through a critical synthesis of various traditions, including the romantic movement and liberal political philosophy. however, it is argued that Taylor’s understanding of the implications of religion and revolution significantly differentiates his standpoint from that of pragmatism and theories of democratic creativity. Taylor’s defence of religious transcendence is shown to give rise to tensions with the latter perspective. the theorists of democratic creativity suggest that democracy originates in the rupturing of religious significations and their closure of meaning. taylor essentially inverts these arguments and perceives that the loss of transcendence may lead to a closed world structure. taylor claims that the dilemmas of the modern immanent frame were prefigured in the french Revolution’s inability to generate an institutional form consistent with its understanding of democracy and that social creativity should be qualified in light of this historical experience.

    Abstract:
    In A secular age, taylor introduces the idea of porous subjectivity by way of elucidating the mode of being typical of the enchanted pre-modern world, and juxtaposes it to the buffered self typical of the disenchanted modern world. the framing of the problem in this way, with the argument so clearly oriented as an attack on the latter position, risks a polarization that defaults to the former as the preferred option. these, though, are not our only choices. there is much to recommend Taylor’s notion of porous subjectivity as distinct from the buffered self of atomistic individualism. but taylor associates the emergence of the disenchanted world with disengaged reason, and the existence of an enchanted world with a deeper mode of engagement in the world. if we instead focus upon modes of engagement with the world separate from the question of enchantment, we can perhaps further our understanding of human subjectivity and relations with others.

    Abstract:
    After characterizing Taylor’s general approach to the problems of solidarity, we distinguish and reconstruct three contexts of solidarity in which this approach is developed: The civic, the socio-economic, and the moral. we argue that Taylor’s distinctive move in each of these contexts of solidarity is to claim that the relationship at stake poses normatively justified demands, which are motivationally demanding, but insufficiently motivating on their own. on Taylor’s conception, we need some understanding of extra motivational sources which explain why people do (or would) live up to the exacting demands. taylor accepts that our self-understanding as members of either particular communities or humanity at large has some motivational power, but he suspects that in many cases the memberships are too thin to resonate deeply and enduringly within us. in Taylor’s view, a realistic picture of what moves people to solidarity has to account for the extra motivation, when it happens. we propose an alternative view in which morality, democracy and socio-economic cooperation can be seen as separate spheres or relations which are normatively justified, motivationally demanding, but also sufficiently motivating on their own.

  • Wie Wollen Wir Leben? Das Politische Denken Und Staatsverständnis Von Charles Taylor. Edited by Ulf Bohman. Baden-Baden: Nomos, 2014. In German.
    Abstract:
    Charles Taylor is a genuine political thinker. While a wider audience interested in political theory knows him best from the debates on communitarianism, his substantial approach is still mainly entertained in philosophy and the humanities in general. This volume aims to demonstrate the relevance, diversity, and fruitfulness of his political thought in particular. Pertinent experts contribute to this task. The book is divided into three parts: (I) constellations in intellectual history, (II) systematical concepts and positions, and (III) democracy and its institutions. Despite all the diversity in Taylor's political thought – assembled for the first time specifically in this volume – one unifying questions shines through: How do we want to live?
