      A política de identidade e o conceito de reconhecimento těm se transformado em questőes dominantes da teoria política contemporánea. Como conceito, o reconhecimento significa que um individuo ou grupo social reivindica o direito a ter sua identidade reconhecida, de forma direta ou através da mediaçao de um conjunto de instituiçöes. As teorías que tem problematizado estas questőes abordam tanto temas teóricos importantes como questőes políticas centrais do nosso tempo, como a definiçâo de direitos das minorias, reivindicaçöes de autodeterminaçâo nacional ou os desafios colocados por nossas sociedades cada dia mais multiculturais. Dessa forma, o objetivo central do presente artigo é apresentar e discutir os argumentos centrais de Charles Taylor, Axel Honneth e Nancy Fraser que těm se transformando em essenciais para esta discussâo, enfatizando o debate em torno da relaçâo entre reconhecimento e redistribuiçâo, e mais especificamente entre o problema da injustiça baseada na questâo da identidade e o problema da injustiça económica. Por último, tentaremos entender algumas das implicaçöes teóricas e políticas do discurso da diferença e das teorias do reconhecimento dentro de uma perspectiva conceptual mais ampla.

      This article traces Charles Taylor's "secularity three" outside the West, finding that it was present among poets but not among novelists in twentieth-century Turkey. It explains this contrast between these two very similar groups by using network analysis, highlighting the greater availability, in poetry networks, of nonpious gatekeepers to aspiring pious actors, following an initial long period of religious conflict. In order to benefit from association with these gatekeepers, pious actors learned to split their selves into two, committing themselves simultaneously to their absolutist faith and to its practical impossibility in a secular age. If and when the prospect of cross-fertilization waned, however, they would effortlessly switch back to their earlier subjectivity. Pious novelists, by contrast, underwent no such learning process. Based on these findings, I argue, first, that the study of the secular must pay greater attention to religious conflict and the ways in which it is resolved, and second, that it must consider balancing its longue-durée approach with an eventful focus.

      Humboldt has had a complex reception in the English-speaking world. The thesis-antithesis-synthesis rhetorical structure he inherited from Fichte has contributed to misunderstanding of his views. In the later nineteenth century he was depicted as an evolutionist, including by his prominent American disciple Brinton. His thought helped to shape twentieth-century anthropology in the USA through the work of Boas, who, however, cited him only once, and it had an impact on the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, though how much of one is debated. If Noam Chomsky’s claim to be his intellectual heir is dubious, Humboldt’s shadow looms over current work on embodied language, and is central to Taylor’s (2016) attempt to redirect the Anglophone philosophical tradition towards a conception of man as ‘the language animal’.

      Neste artigo temos como objetivo tratar do significado político da secularização. Iniciamos abordando a tensão existente entre a epistemologia religiosa e a epistemologia do humanismo exclusivo. Damos continuidade problematizando a questão referente à era dos reordenamentos e da transmutação para uma nova ordem moral secularizada, na qual o agente humano se autointerpreta. Assim, destacamos a relevância da presença da epistemologia religiosa na construção de uma nova mentalidade no imaginário social moderno. Surge a implicação do exercício do self se avaliar fortemente a partir da epistemologia imanente do humanismo exclusivo. Outra abordagem empreendida deste problema é a da elaboração de uma ética da autenticidade, que interferiu na construção da identidade moral expressivista, cada vez mais desarraigada dos pressupostos da epistemologia religiosa. Então, abordamos a postura do agente humano viver o conflito de busca por autorrealização e sentido normativo-ontológico para o seu self ao articular a sua forma de vida e identidade moral numa era secular.
      In this article we aim to address the political significance of secularization. We begin by addressing the tension between religious epistemology and the epistemology of exclusive humanism. We proceed to the question of the age of reordering and transmutation into a new secularized moral order, where the human agent is self-interpreting. Thus, we highlight the relevance of the presence of religious epistemology in the construction of a new mentality in the modern social imaginary. The implication of the exercise of the self arises strongly from the immanent epistemology of exclusive humanism. Another approach taken to this problem is the elaboration of an Ethics of authenticity, which interfered in the construction of expressivist moral identity, increasingly uprooted from the presuppositions of religious epistemology. So we approach the posture of the human agent to live the search conflict for self-realization and normative-ontological sense for his self by articulating his way of life and moral identity in a secular age.].

      This paper analyzes the characteristics of interculturalism in relation to multiculturalism. Multiculturalism is often criticized for the reason that it ghettoizes cultural minorities and hinders them from integrating into main stream society. Taking the same stance, Interculturalism suggests itself as a model which aims at both the recognition of diversity and integration.
      To understand the relationship between multiculturalism and interculturalism, we go through Charles Taylor. He suggests to use the term ‘multiculturalism’ on two levels : as a generic term and as a sub term. As a generic one, it is for the ensemble of policies introduced with the combined goals of recognizing diversity, fostering integration and producing/maintaining equality. As a sub one, it designates a sub-species of such policies, to be contrasted with another sub-species, called ‘intercultural’. Following his suggestion, we can have a proper understanding of the relationship between them while reducing the possible confusion.
      Francophone Quebec society prefers interculturalism, while anglophone Canada prefers multiculturalism. This reflects each region’s concerns and situations. ‘Interculturalism’ recognizes official culture maintained by the medium of French, while ‘multiculturalism’ does not. Anglophone Canadian regards Quebec’s such a policy as refusing the recognition of cultural diversity. However, Quebecer considers that as a way of realization of multiculturalism as a generic term in Confederation.
      When we try to understand properly the relationship between multiculturalism and interculturalism, it is important to consider the reason why each model is preferred in each relevant region. On the basis of understanding of each model’s local and historical aspects, we can have a proper recognition of those models and examine the validity of criticism on multiculturalism by interculturalism.

      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.
    • ———. "Is Charles Taylor (Still) a Weak Ontologist?" Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review 56, no. 1 (2017): 65-87.
      In this paper, I critically discuss Charles Taylor’s employment of the concept of ontology by shining a spotlight on a shift in emphasis from an anthropocentric to a non-anthropocentric viewpoint in his more recent writings on ontology. I also argue that Stephen White’s characterization of Taylor’s “weak” ontology, while revealing, only partly explains Taylor’s position, as White’s interpretation leaves no room for the metaphysical thrust in Taylor’s thought. Drawing attention to a Taylor left out of White’s Taylor, I ultimately seek to show why Taylor’s distinctive mode of argumentation is not consonant with White’s weak-ontological approach.

      This essay critically discusses Charles Taylor’s distinctive mode of argumentation regarding ethics, phenomenology, and ontology. It also examines the meaning of Taylor’s ontological claims by putting a spotlight on the underappreciated significance of Heidegger and Murdoch for Taylor’s ontology. I argue that Taylor’s hybrid position is best understood as a phenomenological attempt to connect Heideggerian ontology and Murdochean ethics. The paper is divided in five sections: (1) Taylor’s engagement with Murdoch and his tendency towards non-anthropocentrism in ethics; (2) his unusual interwoven mode of thought; (3) his debt to Heidegger; (4) his hesitant interpretations of Heidegger and Murdoch; and (5) how these hesitations affect Taylor’s ethical view in general and its underlying ontology in particular.
    • ———. "Does Charles Taylor have a Nietzsche Problem?" Constellations: An International Journal of Critical and Democratic Theory 24, no. 3 (2017).
      This paper critically discusses Charles Taylor’s ontological views in an ongoing discussion with Mark Redhead’s analysis of what he calls “Taylor’s Nietzschean predicament.” The paper is divided in five sections. The first section examines Taylor’s evaluation of the difference between theistic and non-theistic moral sources. It becomes clear in the second section that this is only the gateway to Redhead’s critique of Taylor. I argue that his analysis, while revealing, is largely based on interpretive errors. After locating Taylor’s “Nietzsche problem” by drawing heavily on an insightful paper by Michael Shapiro in the third section, I continue to discuss the implications of this problem for Taylor’s views in the fourth section by showing that his hermeneutic perspective of strong evaluation tends to close the very questions that Nietzsche’s genealogy opens up, and finally reflect in the concluding fifth section on how these issues affect Taylor’s ontology as a whole.

      This short article is a commentary of Martin Stokhof’s paper “The End of Philosophy? A Wittgensteinian Perspective on the Challenge of Naturalism” (published in the same volume), in which he addresses the challenges that naturalism poses for the humanities in general, and for philosophy in particular. My commentary is titled “What About Ethics? Challenging Naturalism From a Taylorian Perspective”. Referring to Taylor’s arguments, I suggest that Stokhof’s analysis could be supplemented with a criticism of naturalism concerning its (in)ability to explain the full scope of our moral deliberations, and thereby pose to Stokhof the question as to whether (and if so, to what extent) his Wittgensteinian analysis can also be used to challenge naturalism itself.
    • ———.  "A Phenomenological Approach with Ontological Implications? Charles Taylor and Maurice Mandelbaum on Explanation in Ethics." Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 20, no. 5 (2017): 977-991.
      This paper critically discusses Charles Taylor’s ethical views in his little known paper “Ethics and Ontology” (J Philos 100 (6): 305–320, 2003) by confronting it with the moral phenomenology of Maurice Mandelbaum, as laid out in his (largely neglected) The Phenomenology of Moral Experience (1955). The aim of the paper is to explore the significance of Taylor’s views for the dispute between naturalists, non-naturalists, and quietists in contemporary metaethics. It is divided in six sections. In the first section, I examine Taylor’s critique of naturalism. I continue to discuss his moral phenomenology in more detail in the second and third sections, arguing that Taylor’s move from phenomenology to ontology is problematic. In the fourth section, I evaluate Taylor’s strategy by comparing it with Mandelbaum’s understanding of moral phenomenology, while also extending this comparison to the issue of how to locate the source of moral experience in the fifth section. Based on these discussions, I finally conclude in the sixth section that Taylor’s hermeneutical position, although ontologically incomplete and underdemonstrated, draws attention to a question to which current moral theory does not adequately respond.

      Este artículo hace parte de una tesis doctoral inédita, titulada el consenso deseable, entre la visión de Charles Taylor y el cosmopolitismo contemporáneo. Basado en la lectura orientada al problema, el artículo introduce en las condiciones que, según la visión de Charles Taylor, requiere el consenso en las sociedades contemporáneas. Esas condiciones son: primero, la demostración de la tesis de la refutabilidad de las posiciones morales y, segundo, la ruptura con el etnocentrismo en el análisis de las situaciones de conflicto. La primera condición nos pone en contacto con las nociones básicas que estructuran el pensamiento de Taylor, a saber, autocomprensión, trasfondo moral compartido y orden moral secular. La segunda implica un marco de pensamiento político cosmopolita y producción de conocimiento transcultural que desafía el hacer de las ciencias sociales.

      Girard distanced himself from philosophy so strongly most of the time that only a few philosophers engaged with his mimetic theory. Besides philosophers committed to mimetic theory and Gianni Vattimo, Charles Taylor is one of the few philosophers who has taken Girard’s work seriously. Girard and Taylor are among those contemporary thinkers who address the crisis of modernity without ending up in a fundamentalist antimodernism. Taylor is less apocalyptic, but also does not discount the crisis of modernity, as the original title (The Malaise of Modernity) of one of his books attests. He comes closest to Girard’s apocalyptic attitude when he follows Ivan Illich’s interpretation of modernity as a perversion of Christianity.

      The philosophical literature on personal authenticity is (as many philosophical literatures admittedly are) deeply fraught and riddled with controversy. n this paper I will focus on one particular, prominent sense in which authenticity has been conceived—as an ethical ideal of self-fulfillment.1 This conception finds its most well known expression in the work of Charles Taylor, and more recently in that of Somogy Varga.2 Herein I will consider Taylor’s and Varga’s accounts of authenticity as self-fulfillment, and show that, though rich and largely successful on certain grounds, they are ultimately incomplete, failing to capture certain intuitions that seem key to our pre-theoretical notions of self-fulfillment, and are also key if authenticity is to be conceived as a full-fledged ethical ideal. I recommend that their model be integrated with another sense of authenticity, originating in Sartre’s work but also discussed in recent analytic literature, which centers on epistemic notions of self-acknowledgement. I argue that this conception supplies considerations of honesty and epistemic responsibility to oneself and others regarding the facts of one’s personal situation, condition, and character—factors that are missing in the theories of Taylor and Varga.

      From Charles Taylor to Marcel Gauchet, theorists of the social imaginary have given us new ways to talk about the shared structures of meanings and practices of the West. Theorists of this group have argued against the narrow horizons of meaning that are deployed by deliberative political theories in developing their basic normative concepts and principles, providing an alternative to the oscillation between the constructivism and the realism. Theorists of the imaginary have enabled us to think about normatively charged collective imaginaries as logically prior to the construction of normative principles. What theorists of the imaginary have not done is make specific connections between the ontological background of social imaginaries and the normative utterance. This lacuna has left them vulnerable to the charges of ?normative deficit? and vagueness that Habermas and others famously make against philosophies of ?world disclosure?. This article develops a conception of the normative utterance that enables us to reason through social imaginaries. In such reasoning, claims are not expressed in the propositional form of the Rawlsian or Habermasian justification, but through a complex engagement with the worldhood that informs normative judgements.

      Notre objectif est de montrer que la théorie de l’argumentation philosophique développée par Charles Taylor apporte une solution élégante, quoiqu’implicite, au problème de l’« historicisme transcendantal » dans la tradition herméneutique contemporaine (Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricoeur). Ce problème consiste à se demander comment il peut être possible à la fois (1) de désavouer l’existence de vérités « absolues » ou « anhistoriques » et (2) de reconnaître au discours philosophique sur l’« historicité » (Geschichtlichkeit) de la pensée tous ses droits, puisque ce discours demeure de facto et de jure une pensée de l’a priori. En ce sens, mes analyses se concentre-ront sur la façon dont Taylor parvient à justifier la thèse – en apparence contradictoire – selon laquelle la réflexion philosophique peut parvenir à des conclusions « apodictiques et pourtant ouvertes à un débat sans fin ».
      Our aim is to show that Charles Taylor’s theory of philosophical argumentation proposes an elegant, albeit implicit, solution to the problem of “transcendental historicism” in contemporary hermeneutics (Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricoeur). This problem consists in asking how it is possible both to (1) disavow the existence of “absolute” or “anhistorical” truths and (2) fully acknowledge the status of philosophical discourses on “historicity” (Geschichtlichkeit), since those discourses remain de facto and de jure properly a priori. The following discussion focusses on how Taylor manages to justify the seemingly contradictory thesis that philosophical reflection can reach conclusions that are “apodictic and yet open to end-less debate.”.
    • Tsz, Wan Hung. "Habermas and Taylor on Religious Reasoning in a Liberal Democracy." The European Legacy 22, no. 5 (2017): 549-565.
      Abstract This article compares Habermas’s and Taylor’s approach to the role of religious language in a liberal democracy. It shows that the difference in their approach is not simply in their theories of religious language. The contrast lies deeper, in their incompatible moral theories: Habermas’s universal discourse ethics vs Taylor’s communitarian substantive ethics. I also explore William Rehg’s defence of discourse ethics by conceding that it is based on a metavalue of rational consensus. However, I argue that Habermas’s and Rehg’s discourse ethics and translation proviso are untenable. While Taylor rightly argues that there is no reason to exclude religious reason from the formal political sphere, his proposed fusion of horizons to generate a new hybrid framework is also problematic. I suggest that Taylor’s historical hermeneutics should be extended to include the narrative approach to ethical deliberation as conducive to mutual experiential understanding, and hence to achieving a fusion of horizons of the diverse worlds of citizens in a liberal democracy.

      Stanley Hauerwas has been noted for his theology of missionary “witness.” However, his theology is not uncontroversial. Of late, it is argued that his theology of witness does not often, or sufficiently, attend to the nature and complexity of belief for those people who live in contemporary, Western society. Part of this complexity, as highlighted by various sociologists and theologians, is that religion has become individualized and privatized. These are serious challenges to the church’s engagement with contemporary society, which Hauerwas does not always seem to adequately address. It will be the purpose of this article, however, to attempt to overcome this lacuna in Hauerwas’s theology, and explore if, and how, his theology might serve as a response to some of the specific challenges arising out of the growing trend towards “privatized religion” in the United States. This will be accomplished by bringing into dialogue Hauerwas’s later work on witness, with some of the sociological insights provided by Charles Taylor and Robert Wuthnow. It will be argued that Hauerwas’s theology of witness, though incomplete, does provide insights that might be helpful to the church in her missionary efforts in the United States.

      A peculiar narrative about the Western secularity given by Charles Taylor brings about not only a revival of secularization thesis , but also a reopening of spiritual understanding. This article discriminated three dimensions of Taylor's concept of secularity: as the understanding background of " transcendental condition" ; as the social imaginaries in the profane time ; as the excarnation from the standpoint of Christian secularization. Then it gave three possible reflections on the spiritual condition in modem time: 1 ) Taylor's work deconstructs the dichotomy of "the secular and the spiritual , " which means modern secularization is a new understanding context which is implicit and shared by secular people and religious people; 2) According to the reflective consciousness prompted by an modem immanent structure, spirituality can be properly defined as "the fullness" of lived experience; 3) Taylor's approach of social imaginaries raises the question of how to develop modem "spiritual imaginaries" to religious people.

      This paper analyzes the contemporary philosophical and political debate concerning the difficulties raised by intercultural processes and liberal institutions, showing how today’s liberal system crisis of legitimacy is rooted in the philosophical grounds of occidental cultural identity. Two authors are mainly considered: Charles Taylor and Jürgen Habermas. They both refuse the postmodern theory of the exhaustion of practical reason’s normativity and found the possibility of a reason’s virtuous development on the explanation of its genealogical link with the history of occidental identity.

      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.

      本文透過對於托克維爾與泰勒之民主思想的對照與比較,一方面從思想史的角度比較兩人的民主理論,提供一個理解泰勒的公民人文主義的思想脈絡;另一方面則藉此凸顯泰勒反省現代民主社會政治實踐的切入點。本文指出兩位思想家都強調民主制度兼具包容與排除的兩股內生趨力,也都主張在共同追求政治自由的共同信念與避免柔性暴政的威脅之間取得平衡。但泰勒與托克維爾民主思想存在一個根本差異:托克維爾認為要避免柔性暴政的肆虐對於政治自由的戕害,公民必須學習培養參與公共事務的技藝、習慣與民風,但對泰勒而言,參與公共事務與自我治理是一種具有內在價值的實踐行動,透過政治實踐,多元異質的公民才能形成對於共同體的共享認同。 ; The purpose of this article is to compare Alexis de Tocqueville's democratic theory with Charles Taylor's civic humanism through a close textual reading, and to illustrate Taylor's succession, expansion, and adaptation of Tocqueville's democratic theory. This article places Taylor's democratic theory in the context of the history of political thought and highlights how Taylor re-invented Tocqueville's democratic thought to establish his own version of civic humanism. Following Tocqueville's legacy, Taylor identifies a structural dilemma embedded in modern democratic societies: the coexistence of an inclusive and an exclusive dynamic. Taylor believes citizens in modern democracies always have to make balanced decisions between inclusion and exclusion, between accommodating plural values and forming a common identity. I argue that Taylor applies and expands Tocqueville's prescriptions to the context of contemporary democratic society, and reassures the importance of citizens' participation in public spheres, which is necessary for a healthy and viable democracy. Finally, I argue that the two thinkers differ in their views on the nature of political participation. Whereas for Tocqueville political participation is a means to learning the art of being free, for Taylor, political practice is a good in itself to achieve a higher and shared common good.

      I argue that in recent years, the therapeutic ethos and the ideal of authenticity have become aligned with distinctively neo-liberal notions of personal responsibility and self-reliance. This situation has radically exacerbated the threat to political community that Charles Taylor saw in the ‘ethics of authenticity’. I begin by tracing the history of the therapeutic ethos and its early (Rieff, Lasch, MacIntyre) and late (Furedi) critics. I then discuss Charles Taylor’s argument that the culture of self-fulfillment generated by the therapeutic ethos harbors an important moral ideal, namely, the ethic of authenticity. Pace Taylor, I argue that authenticity has now become thoroughly instrumentalized in the service of the guiding political rationality of neo-liberalism. I make this case through a discussion of its uptake in managerial techniques and practices and also in popular culture.

      The biblical book of Ecclesiastes is often claimed as a harbinger of modernity. In this essay, I compare Ecclesiastes with two overlapping constructions of modernity, taken from Matthew Arnold and Charles Taylor, focusing especially on Taylor’s motifs of inwardness, narrativity, meaninglessness, and ordinary life. I suggest that the likeness to modernity in Ecclesiastes is a complex bundle of emphases held in tension, which remains hospitable to pre-modern understandings and commitments.

      The aim of this paper is for two things: (1) One thing is to explore ethical thought in a Canadian philosopher, Charles Taylor(1931~) and to disclose its significance in terms of a reconstruction of ethics as practical philosophy. (2) Another thing is to suggest that Taylor`s ethical thought is of help to ethical lives of contemporary Koreans as well as West modern individuals. Exactly, `the ethical thought of Taylor` means the conception of human nature of Taylor and (based on the conception) the moral ideal of him. Taylor makes a diagnosis that modern ethics involved modernity does not rightly understand human nature as a live agent, so that it proposes excessively abstractive moral ideals. In other words, he implicates that we need to establish again ethics as practical philosophy, which can help us find an answer in the practical or moral crisis experienced in real life. According to him, there are three main separations in modern culture that are `mind-body` separation, `agent-world` separation, `individual-community` separation. Made based on these, modern ethical theories and views are a main cause of existential crisis of modern people. For this reason, Taylor tries to synthesize certain separation mode implicit in the Western modern society. In short, Taylor is drawing the conception of human agent as the dialectical synthesis between `mind-agent-individual` and `body-world-community`, in accordance with it, the moral ideal. In this context, Taylor`s effort is a kind of prescription for overcome limits of modern ethics or modern culture. Taylor`s ethical thought, which has been constructed under a consistent point of view for more than 30 years, is a critical appraisal of modernity of the western society, a philosophical reflection on it, and an effort to overcome its errors. In this sense, his thought can have important meaning in Western History of ethics. And also, it is worth to be continuously studied in our Korean society today. Because human agent, as Taylor emphasized, only don`t mean to the western modern individuals. Therefore, if we could agree that Taylor`s thought will contribute to overcome an existential crisis of modern Westerns, we would also accept that it will help to Korean`s ethical life in the same manner. And this being so, we need to review more properly Taylor`s message, and reinterpret it in our way.

      The idea of nihilism continues to figure prominently in philosophical debates about the problems of modernity. The aim of this article is to consider how Richard Rorty’s work might advance these debates. The article begins with a discussion of the problem of nihilism as it appears in the recent exchange between Charles Taylor, Hubert Dreyfus and Sean Kelly. It then brings Rorty into the conversation by considering his reflections on egotism and his proposed antidote to it: self-enlargement. I propose that self-creation and solidarity, two key ideas of Rorty’s earlier work, should be understood as redemptive paths to self-enlargement. With this interpretation in place, Rorty can be seen as offering an alternative perspective on the problem of nihilism, one that compares favourably with those put forward by Taylor, Dreyfus and Kelly.

      ABSTRACTA Secular AgeA Secular Age Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age represents a remarkable achievement. Taylor insists in a reasoned way that the sacred continues to have an important and legitimate role, and challenges assumptions, whether based on Weberian or Durkheimian understandings of religion in society, that faith no longer has a place. In doing this, he distinguishes among different aspects of the secularisation thesis. In this article I assert that there is a coherence to Taylor’s body of work, including A Secular Age , and I trace certain themes, such as a concern with notions of the self, that run through his work. I also identify in Taylor’s argument links to the thought of thinkers like Blondel, Gilson, Maritain and Marcel, and to the notion of an apologetics of hope.

      Charles Taylor not only makes a strong defense of Hegel' s philosophy,but also reveals the relation between Hegel and the modern society. Taylor reinterprets"self- consciousness"which forms the basis of Hegel' s philosophical system through three phases. The first phase is the transformation process from "sense- certainty"to "self- consciousness". The second phase is struggles for recognition between self- awareness. The third phase is that self- consciousness pursues freedom. Therefore,Taylor depicts the dangerous journey which self- consciousness aspires to fullness and reconciliation.

      In this paper, I insist that we need a collective human right to collective identity. This is because collective identity is one in which the members of a community/group have a sense of being an indispensable part of an individual identity, with distinct characteristics as group and individual human rights are not sufficient to protect collective identity. I have also tried to locate the argument within the framework of inter-culturalism presented by Charles Taylor. In my account, Taylor’s inter-culturalism, a variation of his non-procedural liberalism, which aims at ensuring equal opportunity for participation in making new collective identity while admitting the de-facto existence of pervasive collective identity in the given community, could deal with conflicts that are presently unsolvable because it aims at opening a public space for all in creating new collective identity.

      En este trabajo me propongo mostrar las raíces agustinianas del pensamiento de Charles Taylor. Para ello, describiré el agustinismo tal como lo hace Taylor en Sources of the Self e intentaré mostrar los avances de Agustín respecto de la filosofía antigua (sobre todo Platón y Plotino): la interioridad, la creación ex nihilio y una nueva interpretación del deseo. En segundo lugar, describiré los rasgos esenciales que tiene la Modernidad para Taylor así como la ambivalente afirmación-crítica que hace de ellos, sobre todo a partir de su teoría de la acción y su comunitarismo. Por último, intentaré mostrar que tanto la afirmación y la crítica de la Modernidad como el ideal de “autenticidad” que defiende Taylor son deudores de un agustinismo que, si bien la Modernidad asumió, lo hizo de manera incompleta.

      Hay diversas maneras de entender y definir la religión. El filósofo canadiense Charles Taylor —quien se ha ocupado del fenómeno religioso en los últimos años— la ha intentado definir desde la trascendencia. El problema de esta definición es que no está exenta de críticas: la primera de ellas plantea que la religión propone ideales humanos demasiado altos, tales como el ascetismo, la mortificación o la renuncia a los fines humanos ordinarios. La segunda crítica, por su parte, pone el acento en que la religión no es capaz asumir y reconocer la agresión y el conflicto en la humanidad. La religión tiende a expurgar la realidad. En este artículo presentaremos estas críticas y, también, cuáles pueden ser las posibles maneras de responder a ellas.

      This study aims to find a new way of educating our Korean youngsters for their formation of self-identity, as an alternative to the psychological approach that has dominated our schooling. The psychological approach tends to objectify and alienate the youngsters’ deep sense of their identity centering on what they value in life and how to orient their lives in the long run. For the alternative approach, Charles Taylor’s notion of authenticity is considered a guiding concept that helps us better understand the idea of self-identity; here self-identity is regarded as being shaped, not given, by one’s own reflection and interpretation of oneself in quest of one’s deep inner voice. Being authentic or honest to oneself is to be attentive to one’s inner voice. One’s inner voice directs him/her to the good or value that he/she is truly seeking. Taylor calls on one to understand himself/herself and interpret one’s life according to that good and value that he/she is in touch with. Furthermore, he argues that articulating what one deeply values in language is a way of shaping one’s self-identity. This study contributes to the field of philosophy of education by proposing a form of self-identity education which has two distinctive features. First, it is suggested as a way of overcoming problems inherent in the psychological approach. Second, it is suggested not as a partial program of, but as an overall principle of, the curriculum, based on Rene Archillar’s idea of self-defamiliarization through the process of aporia. This is a way of leading our students to questioning their current self-identity in the educational context, which can affect the way teachers teach their subject matters in the classroom. Yet this approach also has limitations. It does not provide enough examples to show how education for the formation of self-identity can be carried out in the teaching of many different subject matters in schools.

      There has been an ongoing dispute between defenders of world disclosure (understood here in a loosely Heideggerian sense) and critics who point to its normative shortcomings. Habermas’s attack on Heidegger, Castoriadis and Derrida for privileging disclosure over argument in The Philosophical Discourse of Modernity is good example.  I will take up a recent confrontation between Charles Taylor and Robert Brandom over this question as my point of departure for showing how world disclosure can expand the range of normative argument. I begin by distinguishing pre-reflective disclosure—the already interpreted, structured world in which we find ourselves—from reflective disclosure—the discrete intervention of a particular utterance or text. I discuss Taylor’s notion of social imaginaries as a way of thematizing our pre-reflective background and Talal Asad’s critique of Taylor to show how this background can be one space of argument. I then look at reflective disclosure, of which Taylor gives an inadequate account, developing my argument with help of literature, including a close analysis of Susan Glaspell short story “A Jury of Her Peers.” This story illustrates how world disclosure can make normative arguments without confining itself to Brandom’s or Habermas’s idea of the exchange of reasons.

      Abstractand This article seeks to frame the work of the Canadian political philosopher Charles Taylor in terms of its significance for Irish culture. Taylor came to wide prominence for his work on multiculturalism, but the varying ways he understands this term are especially important for Ireland. “Multiculturalism 1” speaks to the kinds of difficulties between nationalist and Unionist communities in Northern Ireland. “Multiculturalism 2” speaks to the more widely understood meaning of the term, which is connected to a cultural diversity that is often born of immigration. Taylor has had a strong role in the emergence of the term “interculturalism” to describe a form of cultural diversity that explicitly seeks to balance the needs of minority and majority cultures, and in Canada and Quebec that term has taken on a different understanding than the one that is common in Ireland. That work on interculturalism also strongly underwrites Taylor’s work on secularism, and he traces that social phenomenon in ways with clear relevance for Ireland. Although Taylor’s explicit engagement with Ireland is rare, it is clearly time to bring his work into the mainstream of studies of Irish culture.

      Incisive insights into contemporary pop culture and its apocalyptic bent   The world is going to hell. So begins this book, pointing to the prevalence of apocalypse — cataclysmic destruction and nightmarish end-of-the-world scenarios — in contemporary entertainment.   In How to Survive the Apocalypse Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson examine a number of popular stories — from the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica to the purging of innocence in Game of Thrones to the hordes of zombies in The Walking Dead — and argue that such apocalyptic stories reveal a lot about us here and now, about how we conceive of our life together, including some of our deepest tensions and anxieties.   Besides analyzing the dsytopian shift in popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson also suggest how Christians can live faithfully and with integrity in such a cultural context.   Read more about this book at

In this new book, it is both reassuring and instructive to witness someone with Redhead's deep and long knowledge of Taylor incorporate his more recent work, A Secular Age , into a discussion of the themes of Taylor's corpus more generally.

      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 This paper calls attention to the interpretive, and humanist liberal, strand of thinking that is most clearly evident in the development of Charles Taylor's ideas. Recovering it makes it possible to see why the differences between Taylor and Rawls should be seen, not in terms of the erstwhile disputes between liberals and communitarians, but instead as over issues of method, and in particular about the independence or autonomy of political philosophy. Rawls and Taylor exemplify distinct modes of postanalytic liberal theorizing that emerged in the late twentieth century out of two very different responses to challenges within analytic philosophy's discursive beginnings that continue to divide the discipline to this day. Their juxtaposition, therefore, sheds light on how such methodological commitments animate normative prerogatives and generates important resources for thinking about the very powers and limits of political theory.

      本論文藉由臺灣與中國大陸關於社會理論專書譯作的發展、流動(進出口)的不對稱現況,闡述臺灣的社會理論知識處境處於雙重的殖民狀態:一方面,臺灣社會理論學界對於中國大陸中文譯作的渴求與依賴,使得中國大陸的譯本成為支配著臺灣社會理論知識的活動內容;另一方面,臺灣與中國大陸的社會理論又不得不依賴西方歐美傳統與發展的社會理論,以解釋自身的經驗世界。前者是兩岸社會理論知識一消一長的關鍵,後者則是百餘年來,中西文化交流衝突與依賴的老問題。這兩種「殖民」皆非以武力所形成的支配關係,毋寧是一種「自我殖民」,是一種文化主體性的自我閹割,以及重新自我認識的契機。 ; In this study, the “doubly colonized” status of Taiwan’s social theory-related knowledge was discussed by examining the imbalance between the development and flow (i.e., import and export) of translated social theory-related special books in Taiwan and China. First, the needs and dependence of the Taiwanese social theory field on the translated social theory-related books from China have made China a dominant force influencing Taiwan’s social theory-related knowledge. Second, the dependence of Taiwan and China on social theories proposed by the West (which were established on the basis of its own traditions and development instead of those of Taiwan and China) to explain their social situations has resulted in cross culture-based issues. Regarding the aforementioned two situations, the first describes the problem in which Taiwan’s social theory-related knowledge regresses while that of China improves, and the second details the reliance on and conflicts between Chinese and Western cultures over the past century (in which Taiwan and China have been forced to adopt the knowledge provided by the West despite their differences in culture). Accordingly, the two entities (i.e., China and Western countries) have “colonized” and dominated Taiwan without the use of force. However, instead of submitting to foreign influences Taiwan should employ a “self-colonization” approach, a cultural subjectivity that denies itself from foreign sovereignty. Such an approach will provide Taiwan with an opportunity to “relearn” about itself.

      This paper develops and integrates several strands of thought represented in recent contributions that the author has tried to make to the secularizationsacralization debate. That debate is both ecclesial and theological, and the two contexts are related. The theological debate will not be resolved short of discovering the key to discerning grace everywhere. Resolution of the ecclesial debate will take much longer, if not in the sensus fidelium at least in magisterial attitudes. This paper proposes a central element in the relevant discernment.

      In A Secular Age Charles Taylor endorses Mikhail Epstein's notion of 'minimal religion' as his preferred orientation to the good for Western secular society. This article examines the basis of Epstein's 'minimal religion' which rests on the psychoanalytic theories of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. It is shown that Freud's theories are incompatible with Taylor's own thought, and in the case of Jung, Epstein fails to develop the latter's contribution to our understanding of religion. Moreover, although Taylor endorses Epstein's work he makes no reference to Jung. To this end, the importance of Jung's theories in relation to religion are elucidated and offered as a way to forge a dialogue between a nuanced humanist position and the theistic vision offered by Taylor.

      There are many different diagnoses of what constitutes the 'post-secular.' My own view is that it constitutes the unprecedented and paradoxical co-existence of two supposedly contradictory social, religious, and cultural trends: on the one hand, the persistence of secular objections to public religion and on the other, the novel re-emergence of religious actors in the global body politic. John Caputo's much quoted aphorism - that God is dead, but so also is the death of God - captures this agonistic model of the post-secular, in which what we are looking at is not the revival of religion, or the reversion of secular modernity into a re-enchanted body politic, but something more unprecedented and complex. Yet it also means there is little in the way of agreed discourse about the nature of the public square and the legitimacy of religious reasoning within it. This article considers one possible model, that of 'post-secular rapprochement,' as one way of envisaging how newly-emergent forms of religious activism and discourse might be mediated back into a pluralist public domain.

    • Lehman, Glen. Charles Taylor's Ecological Conversations: Politics, Commonalities and the Natural Environment. Palgrave Macmillan, 2015.
      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.

This article suggests instead that the hallmark of Western secularity is not so much a disenchanted subject, but a conflicted relation between a psychology defined by disenchantment and a theory of the body open to a world of invisible and untraceable forces.

      In this paper, we use the work of the philosopher, Charles Taylor, to investigate the role of culture on internationalization decisions. Using parameters related to key constructs such as positive liberty, social ontology, expressivism, civic republicanism and common spaces, we look at how culture influences the decisions regarding corporate international expansion. This framework was applied in a multi-interview design in four firms from the food processing industry from France and Canada. Results showed an obvious sensitivity to cultural difference and that managerial practices surrounding this issue tended to be intuitive and emergent. These practices were not crystallized in the form of a conscious and deliberate organizational strategy for dealing with cultural difference when planning foreign market entry. Our findings triggered further reflections on managerial implications such as the importance of searching more explicitly for cultural and organizational anchors when reviewing location factors.

    • Shackman, Elizabeth. "Thinking about Religion, Law, and Politics in Latin America." Revista De Estudios Sociales 51 (2015): 25-35.
      Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age is both important and insufficient to the study of religion, law, and politics in Latin America. While aspects of the North Atlantic experience of secularity have become globalized, shaping legal systems and other forms of collective governance around the world, local and regional histories and experiences often depart significantly from Taylor’s account of secularity and conception of religion. Scholars of religion and politics in the region need to consider those aspects of local and regional history, such as indigenous and Afro-descendent histories and experiences, that challenge or may be indifferent to globalized Euro-American experiences of secularity and religion. To do so requires grappling with the global effects of the history charted by Taylor while also moving beyond it to account for practices, histories, and ways of life that work outside or against “secularity 3” and the presumptions about religion that it presupposes and produces.

      In this essay I examine the debate between Jürgen Habermas and Charles Taylor on the post-secular state. I argue that, although their views on the relation of religion and politics converge in certain respects, a profound difference remains between their overall approaches. Their disagreement on the epistemic status of religious as opposed to secular moral reasons, and on the role religious arguments can play in the public sphere testify to a deeper schism. Thus what might at first seem like a quarrel about details proves to be a fundamental philosophical divide on the issue of modernity. I conclude that Taylor?s model of post-secularism is more promising as an approach to the challenge posed by growing religious and cultural diversity, for, if understood as a version of ?reiterative universalism,? it avoids both moral relativism and Eurocentrism.; AbstractIn this essay I examine the debate between Jürgen Habermas and Charles Taylor on the post-secular state.

    • Vanheeswijck, Guido. "Does History Matter? Charles Taylor on the Transcendental Validity of Social Imaginaries." History and Theory 54, no. 1 (2015): 69-85.
      Since its appearance in 2007, Charles Taylor's monumental book has received much attention. One of the central issues in the discussions around Taylor's book is the role of history in philosophical argumentation, in particular with regard to normative positions on ultimate affairs. Many critics observe a methodological flaw in using history in philosophical argumentation in that there is an alleged discrepancy between Taylor's historical approach, on the one hand, and his defense of fullness in terms of openness to transcendence, on the other. Since his “faith‐based history” is unwittingly apologetic, it is not only “hard to judge in strictly historical terms,” but it also proves that “when it comes to the most ultimate affairs history may not matter at all.” This paper challenges this verdict by exposing the misunderstanding underlying this interpretation of the role of history in Taylor's narrative. In order to disambiguate the relation between history and philosophy in Taylor's approach, I will raise three questions. First, what is the precise relation between history and ontology, taking into account the ontological validity of what Taylor calls social imaginaries? Second, why does “fullness” get a universal status in his historical narrative? Third, is Taylor's position tenable that the contemporary experience of living within “an immanent frame” allows for an openness to transcendence? In order to answer these questions, I will first compare Peter Gordon's interpretation of the status of social imaginaries with Taylor's position and, on the basis of that comparison, distinguish two definitions of ontology (sections I and II). Subsequently, I try to make it clear that precisely Taylor's emphasis on the historical character of social imaginaries and on their “relaxed” ontological anchorage allows for his claim that “fullness” might have a trans‐historical character (section III). Finally, I would like to show that Taylor's defense of the possibility of an “openness to transcendence”—as a specific mode of fullness—is not couched in “onto‐theological” terms, as suggested by his critics, but that it is the very outcome of taking into account the current historical situation (section IV).
    • Williams, Emma. "In Excess of Epistemology: Siegel, Taylor, Heidegger and the Conditions of Thought." Journal of Philosophy of Education 49, no. 1 (2015): 142-160.
        Harvey Siegel's epistemologically-informed conception of critical thinking is one of the most influential accounts of critical thinking around today. In this article, I seek to open up an account of critical thinking that goes beyond the one defended by Siegel. I do this by re-reading an opposing view, which Siegel himself rejects as leaving epistemology (and, by implication, his epistemological account of critical thinking) 'pretty much as it is'. This is the view proposed by Charles Taylor in his paper 'Overcoming Epistemology'. Crucially, my aim here is not to defend Taylor's challenge to epistemology per se, but rather to demonstrate how, through its appeal to certain key tropes within Heideggerian philosophy, Taylor's paper opens us towards a radically different conception of thinking and the human being who thinks. Indeed, as will be argued, it is through this that Taylor and Heidegger come to offer us the resources for re-thinking the nature of critical thinking--in a way that exceeds the epistemological, and does more justice to receptive and responsible conditions of human thought.

      This essay contends that Polanyi’s groundbreaking effort to formulate a more adequate understanding of scientific knowing by acknowledging its practice of operating on the basis of shared assumptions bears striking parallels to Taylor’s subsequent efforts to disclose the cultural assumptions sustaining our sense of identity. Both projects had to uncover normally ignored cultural values and practices sustaining scientific knowing and our identities as moral beings. Given this connection, students of Polanyi would be well-served to explore Taylor’s works in order to develop further implications of Polanyi’s thought. Given Taylor’s later exploration of belief in a secular era motived by his Catholic faith, he offers additional examples of developing Polanyi’s thinking for students exploring theological questions.

While a wider audience interested in political theory knows at him the latest from the debate on Communitarianism, his substantial approach is still mainly entertained in philosophy and the humanities in general. This volume aims at demonstrating the relevance, diversity and fruitfulness of his political thought in particular. Pertinent experts contribute to this task. The book divides into three parts: (I) constellations in intellectual history, (II) systematical concepts and positions, and (III) democracy and its institutions. Despite all the diversity in Taylors political thought – assembled for the first time specifically in this volume – one unifying questions shines through: How do we want to live?

      Abstract Normativity is a problem of modernity. Relativism has emerged with the negation of moral universals. Clifford Christians consistently argues for the concept of proto-norms as a workable basis for normative ethics applied to media practices that operate on a global scale. Christians declares philosopher Charles Taylor to lie in the background of his theorising, but seldom gives a hint as to how Taylor’s thought influences his own. There appears to be sufficient congruence between Christians’ thinking about proto-norms and the articulation of hypergoods, strong evaluation and persons in Taylor’s philosophical anthropology to consider this to be the influence, among other sources Christians draws on. Of particular interest is Taylor’s insistence that persons always exist in normative moral space as an inescapable horizon of existence. The article explores some aspects of Taylor’s thought that may shed light on what proto-norms are and how they may be applied in the quest for a viable global media ethics in an age when moral relativism seems to be the media's only ethical principle.

      This article is about the moral philosophy of Charles Taylor. The Canadian philosopher establishes a constitutive relationship between our ethical horizons and the way in which we make our identity. This construction is performed by means of the narrative activity of agents that shape their moral space in view of the horizons of meaning that guide them in it. Authors such as Paul Ricoeur, Alasdair MacIntyre , and others have defended against the claim of addressing issues of identity through metaphysical analysis as proposed by the analytic tradition originated in the works of John Locke, David Hume to contemporary authors such as Derek Parfit, the need to address it in phenomenological and hermeneutical terms. Finally, we explore the strategies in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition of authors such as Nagarjuna, Chandrakirti and Tsong Khapa, and explore hypothetical implications of their position for the contemporary philosophical debate.

Desde la teoría de Bolívar Echeverría, parece ser inaceptable esta explicación de la modernidad como modélica y múltiple, porque termina omitiendo las experiencias (mundos de vida de las múltiples) y que un patrón de dominio acompaña la modernidad occidental, lo que provoca el surgimiento de contra imaginarios.

But the proliferation of this term has gone largely unchecked by critical investigations into its deployment. To correct this I address the work of Charles Taylor, Michael Warner and Chiara Bottici, each of whom has written influential texts on imaginaries and the sites of imaginaries. Interestingly, their reliance on imaginaries does not compel them to do away with older modes of thinking such as ideology critique and dialectical thought. Yet what remains of these enduring modes has been sanitized, their radical commitments scarcely pursued. I proceed by conducting an immanent critique of each author’s work, revealing troublesome pre-critical and instrumentalist features that lead to political phenomena being misrepresented or going unidentified entirely. In addition I elaborate modes of dialectical thought and ideology critique that avoid these difficulties and produce the types of critical insights absent from these texts.

      In this article I argue that Rahner's notion of the Supernatural Existential serves to complement and more concretely illustrate Taylor's at‐times tacit, if conflicted, advocacy for some sort of human characteristic that seeks, desires, or is otherwise oriented toward something ‘beyond human flourishing.' By engaging Rahner's theological anthropology with Taylor's thought in ‘A Secular Age,' I show how Taylor's immanent and transcendent divide presupposes an overly cognitive framework that relies extensively on human agency, thematic reflection, and the necessary intellectualization of human experience. As such, Taylor only ever engages in a secondary‐level or a posteriori reflection on belief and unbelief, thereby (perhaps unwittingly) precluding the possibility of considering the a priori ‘condition' for his proposed ‘conditions for belief or unbelief,' otherwise known as ‘secularity 3.' In uncovering the secondary‐level cognitive conditions for categorical belief and unbelief today, helps shed new light on the relevance and value of Rahner's project. Furthermore, I suggest that both Rahner and Taylor, although maybe not immediately recognizable, actually share similar concerns that initially launched their respective projects. Read together, Rahner and Taylor offer a fuller treatment of both the human condition and the social circumstances of this age.

      This paper considers recent arguments from Jürgen Habermas and Charles Taylor that argue that even secular societies ought to tolerate religion for its practical benefits. Then, taking inspiration from Thomas Aquinas, I critique their positions as misconstruing the nature of religion in two fundamental ways. First, we must distinguish generic religion as a natural virtue from diverse species of faith that go beyond the duty to render homage to the First Cause. It will be seen that, generically, religion is integral to the common good inasmuch as it is essential to the perfection of the intellect’s search for truth. Second, from this it follows that religion ought not be justified in utilitarian terms of extrinsic benefit; rather, the good of religion is the intrinsic realization of the activity itself. In light of these correctives, I conclude that even secular societies ought to encourage religious belief, while remaining open to a variety of faiths.

      To understand, or have a right relationship with other cultures has been an important matter especially since the era of colonialism. It is generally acknowledged that the first step to understand other cultures is to overcome ethnocentrism. Some people think the best way to accomplish this task is to accept the thesis of incorrigibility which means that it is impossible to criticize other cultures with one`s own conceptual scheme. Some versions of multiculturalism show this kind of understanding. This position, however, indicates only the lack of willingness to have a genuine relationship with other cultures. So, the standpoint is needed for us which encourages to have relations with other cultures guiding us beyond the dilemma: either being ethnocentric, or accepting incorrigibility thesis. This paper, following Charles Taylor, claims that the model of hermeneutical understanding suggested by Gadamer can contribute to approach other cultures properly. In Gadamer`s hermeneutics, the event of understanding occurs when the horizon of interpreter is fused with that of the text. After fusion, early horizons are transformed into another horizon. This one is different from previous horizons. The concept of ‘fusion of horizons’ implies that both horizons are transformable. So, from this we can derive that ‘fusion of horizons’ says that it is possible to question other cultures without being ethnocentric. From analyzing Taylor`s interpretation of Gadamerian hermeneutics concerning understanding of other cultures, the most precious insight we can acquire seems to be as follows: “If understanding the other is to be construed as fusion of horizons and not as possessing a science of the object, then the slogan might be: no understanding the other without a changed understanding of self.”.

      Leaving Christendom for Good argues that the solution to some of the most troubling tensions in the life of the Catholic Church since Vatican II can be found in the council’s document Gaudium et spes. That text’s view of the church’s mission and social relationships as dialogical has the capacity to liberate. Part One studies the contemporary place of religion, with particular reference to Charles Taylor’s groundbreaking work, A Secular Age. In that context, Gaudium et spes’s dialogical view of the church–world relationship is examined. Part Two explores what true dialogue entails, and how it is best understood theologically. Joseph Ratzinger’s view of the church–world relationship is examined. The book’s final chapter considers two practical implications of its argument: how evangelization can be best understood today, and how the church can best approach issues in the public sphere.

      Tomando como punto de partida el concepto que tiene Taylor acerca del ser humano como un ser de significados, este artículo estudia el modo como Taylor elabora su concepción del uso práctico de la razón, recuperando ciertas nociones fundamentales de la tradición fenomenológica y hermenéutica relativas al lenguaje, como lo son la idea del trasfondo y la situación encarnada del hombre. Puesto que, en definitiva, el trasfondo constituye un horizonte de referencia anterior, desde el punto de vista ontológico, al dominio subjetivo de la razón en el agente humano, el análisis de Taylor termina por favorecer ciertos enfoques de la filosofía contemporánea como, por ejemplo, la analítica existenciaria de Heidegger, que buscan prescindir, paradójicamente, de la premisa del sujeto. Si atendemos a esta indicación, un desafío que resta, pues, al desarrollo futuro de los modos de comprensión de la filosofía moral, y de la antropología filosófica, es el de cómo vincular el análisis del problema moral, de un sujeto de sentidos, con una teoría ontológica del trasfondo que es, en cambio, a-subjetiva.
      Taking as a starting point Taylor's concept about man as a being of meanings, this article examines, in particular, the way that Taylor elaborates his conception of the practical use of reason, recovering some fundamental notions of the phenomenological tradition and hermeneutics, relating to language, such as, the idea of the background, and the incarnated situation of man. Considering that, ultimately, the background is a horizon of previous reference, from the ontological point of view, to the subjective domain of reason in the human agent, the analysis of Taylor ends up favoring certain approaches of contemporary philosophy such as, Heidegger’s existential analytic that aims at leaving aside, paradoxically, the premise of the subject. If we consider this indication, a challenge that remains, then, to the future development of the ways of understanding moral philosophy and philosophical anthropology, is how to link the analysis of the moral problem, in a subject of senses, with the ontological theory of the background that is, however, a-subjective.
    • Meijer, Michiel. "Strong Evaluation and Weak Ontology. the Predicament of Charles Taylor." International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 75, no. 5 (2014): 440-459.
      This paper aims to come to grips with the rich philosophy of Charles Taylor by focusing on his concept of ‘strong evaluation’. I argue that a close examination of this term brings out more clearly the continuing tensions in his writings as a whole. I trace back the origin of strong evaluation in Taylor’s earliest writings, and continue by laying out the different philosophical themes that revolve around it. Next, the focus is on the separate arguments in which strong evaluation is central, uncovering several methodological conflicts in Taylor’s strategies. Arguing against most of his commentators, I suggest that a distinction should be drawn between the philosophical anthropological, moral, and ontological implications of strong evaluation. As a result, the contribution of this paper is threefold. First, it clarifies the issue of strong evaluation by distinguishing the different arguments in which Taylor employs the concept. Second, it makes the case for multiple tensions within Taylor’s methods. Third, as a consequence, this analysis not only enables us to evaluate the potential and limits of his subject-centered philosophy but also separates his objectivist claims from his theories of human subjectivity, opening up the question of the metaphysical status of his ontological view.

Byway of introduction, Taylor's interpretation of the medieval socio-political assumptions for the creation of the extra-political public sphere is presented. Next, there is a discussion of Taylor's interpretational conception of the two most significant traditions of civil society which take their rise from a confrontation with European enlightenment absolutism the traditions of Locke and Montesquieu. The author attempts to make sense of the way in which Taylor's approach resonates with the concept of civil society in discussions about the presuppositions and forms of the creation of the European public sphere and trans-national (European) identities as two key forms of European civil society. In conclusion, the concept of the active border is presented as a key matrix of the conceptual constellation of the public sphere, identity and Europeanisation.

      We intend to show that Taylor's communitarian criticism of the liberal view of (negative) freedom proposes a new way of seeing the freedom of the will (which is called positive freedom). Theories of negative liberty simply rely on an opportunity-concept. This concept does not involve the capacity for realization, since it applies to (negative) freedom as the absence of obstacles, which becomes explicit as the power to do this or that without facing external, physical or legal impediments, for the exercise of this or that possible action. The issue becomes more complex with the exercise-concept, whereby freedom essentially entails self-determination and control over the person of the agent and their action and, therefore, has an intrinsic value of achievement and not simply an instrumental one. Without neglecting the importance of the liberal value of individual freedom, Taylor proposes a new way of seeing this freedom: it does not reside in the exercise of undifferentiated options, but in the actual exercise of capacities through the fulfilment of certain desires that are defined as authentic. We are free only if we do what we really want on the basis of our true desires, not compromised by internal obstacles, in particular by the non-authenticity of some of them.  .

      This chapter critically reconstructs Taylor’s image of modernity, and his accompanying human self-image of what he terms the modern buffered self against which he will posit a porous one. The porous self is his own critical anthropology, which points beyond the specifically religious reference point of A Secular Age to the transcendent. It is argued here that there are three main threads with which Taylor weaves his concern with transcendence—suffering, violence and mystery. Suffering, violence and mystery are imbued in his critique of the modern condition. By contrast, and in a critique of modern violence, mystery, so Taylor argues, has been re-articulated in the Romantic counter-current in a way that opens onto another possible relation to moments of transcendence.

      This paper analyses Charles Taylor's description of the modern identity and its characteristics, especially its expressivist quality, emphasizing the relation between individual and community. After a brief presentation of his work, it considers the notion of 'public sphere', as a privileged space of the political and social debate. Throughout the exposition potential tensions are identified regarding the subjects, the type of arguments and the aims of such debate. The attempt is made to provide tentative answers to these questions drawing on a distinction between different levels or kinds of public discussion, remaining open to further developments.

      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.

      This article deals with the fundamental features of Taylor's concept of recognition and considers some problem areas to which cultural recognition is relevant. Our identity is partly characterized by the recognition or the misrecognition - too often by the misrecognition - of others. The collapse of original social settings has brought a transition from honour to dignity, implying a redefinition of identity and authenticity. The period in which people from western society lived in their pre-determined settings, and with corresponding characters they were called to represent, has lost its relevance today. Taylor distinguishes between the politics of universalism and the politics of difference, both of which are based on the politics of this transition from honour to dignity. Taylor refers to context and particular sociability values, although the community's perception does not reflect any overly-particularist tendencies. His thesis has universalist elements from which he derives normativity. Universal moral ontology is, according to Taylor's thesis, a condition for particular values and standards in practice.

      The theme of this article is the concept of community in the writings of Charles Taylor. It treats as its starting point both the significance attributed by him to this concept as well as his reluctance to being labelled a communitarian. The reconstruction of the concept is based on two of Taylor's major works, Sources of the Self The Making of the Modern Identity and A Secular Age. In the former the focus is on the notion of moral space which is deployed in a critique of individualist ontology, but which does not lead him to claim that the community has some special status. The reconstruction of the latter book focuses on the description of developments leading to modern forms of sociality that have superseded previous forms of social organization that were based, to a large degree, on local communities. In conclusion, I describe Taylor's normative concept of community which is an integral part of his vision of "fullness", which transcends both individualism and the traditional, exclusive communities.

      In this essay Luc Van den Berge and Stefan Ramaekers take the idea(l) of “scientific parenting” as an example of ambiguities that are typical of our late‐modern condition. On the one hand, parenting seems like a natural thing to do, which makes “scientific parenting” sound like an oxymoron; on the other hand, a disengaged stance informed by the latest scientific findings is uncritically demanded of parents, as such an approach is conceived of as a panacea. Instead of taking sides in this discussion, the authors seek a way to make sense of it, drawing upon the work of Charles Taylor, who offers a striking account of our contingent modern condition as well as of our ontological human constitution. They focus particularly on two examples Taylor gives where the contingent self‐understanding does not coincide with our timeless human features. This opens a space for what might be considered paradoxes in our late‐modern Western culture. This essay thus confronts Taylor's philosophy with the new parenting discourse to reveal how our moral horizons have evolved. Following this approach, the authors both expand on Taylor's thinking about our late modernity and at the same time try to assess the new scientific parenting discourse.

      In this paper I present Charles Taylor’s innovative approach to the issue of secularity. Following José Casanova, I distinguish three layers of analysis: (a) the notion of secularity and secularization; (b) theories of secularization; and (c) secularism. In further discussion I point out three senses of secularity used by Taylor: (a) secularity as an emancipation of public spheres; (b) secularity as a decline in religious practice and belief; (c) secularity as a background understanding (or as conditions of belief). I concentrate particularly on the last dimension due to the fact that it reflects the originality of Taylor’s account. In the next stage the three elements which decide about the secular character of the background understanding are presented ("reflexivity", "the immanent frame", and "the decline of the transformation perspective"). Finally I try to point out the pros and cons of Taylor’s approach.

      In skirmishes over the interpretive turn, the work of Charles Taylor is frequently cited as representing the state of the art. yet a systematic assessment of Taylor's interpretivism in light of the most salient criticisms made against it has not been conducted. this paper argues that Taylor's interpretivism withstands the strongest criticisms made of it so far, and therefore is an essential resource for revitalizing the interpretive turn. although it is widely acknowledged in the secondary literature that Taylor's interpretivism rests on ontological claims about human agency, this paper presents a novel justification for this thesis as derived from a heideggerian phenomenology of moods. it also presents two novel ways in which a defense of Taylor's interpretivism helps to bridge the gap between empirical social science research and normative political and ideological critique. in the latter discussion, it draws on Taylor's most recently published work.

Charles Taylor’s Ethics of Authenticity)." Szkice Humanistyczne XIII, no. 4 (33) (2013): 15-28. In Polish.
      This article is an attempt to analyze the concept of the ethics of authenticity created by Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor. The ideal of authenticity is rooted in romantic expressivism and is nowadays connected with the postulate of fulfillment in the Western European culture. The article raises the question about the possibility of the implementation of the ideal of authenticity on educational grounds. The article draws attention to the issue of how and in what axiological horizon young people can form their identity in a contemporary „fluid” postmodern reality, which rejects the traditional moral order. A distinctive feature of our times is to emphasize what is new, individual, subjective and different. In this sense we can speak of the „affirmation of difference” culture. In this reality, the ethical life model is the authenticity – a new form of the moral ideal of being true to oneself. The aim of this paper is not the assessment of ethics of authenticity „rightness” or lack thereof, but rather to draw attention to what it valuable, to save the sense of it by returning to the original ideal and to oppose the aberrations. We may presume that the remedy to the threat coming from the individualistic culture is the same ideal, but properly fulfilled – considering its conditions of meaningfulness, dialogical human nature and moral horizon.

      The model of the politic of difference, proposed by Charles Taylor, in the wake of a conception of liberalism ‘hospitable’, unfolds in a journey aimed to comply with the ontological dimensions of the dignity of different cultures, of cultural traditions and ways of life. Being a self, constructed in terms of dialogue and dialectic of mutual recognition between cultures, refers, in the Charles Taylor’s reflection, to the safeguarding of single, intersubjective or common meanings of specific social, moral, narrative spaces.

      Hermeneutics, also referred to as interpretive phenomenology, has led to important contributions to nursing research. the philosophy of Charles Taylor has been a major source in the development of contemporary hermeneutics, through his ontological and epistemological articulations of the human sciences. the aim of this paper is to demonstrate that Taylor's ideas can further enrich hermeneutic inquiry in nursing research, particularly for investigations of ethical concerns. the paper begins with an outline of Taylor's hermeneutical framework, followed by a review of his key ideas relevant for ethics research. the paper ends with a discussion of my empirical research with critically ill children in Canada and france in relation to Taylor's ideas, chiefly social imaginaries. I argue that Taylor's hermeneutics provides a substantive moral framework as well as a methodology for examining ethical concerns.

      Summary This article presents and compares aspects of Charles Taylor's and Hans Blumenberg's seemingly opposing views about agency and epistemology, setting them in the context of the tradition in German ideas called ‘philosophical anthropology’, with which both align their thinking. It presents key strands of this tradition, from their inception in the late eighteenth century in the writings of Herder, Schiller and others associated with anthropology to their articulation by thinkers such as Max Scheler, Arnold Gehlen and Karl Löwith in the early twentieth century. The main issues here are: man's status as part of nature or as ‘radically divorced’ from nature; the possibility of objective knowledge of man versus the epistemological status of human ‘meaning’; the view of knowledge as abstraction versus ‘concrete’ or ‘lived’ experience. Within these parameters the article contrasts Taylor's emphasis on ‘engaged’ agency, embedded in discourses, bodies and predispositions, with Blumenberg's sense of our ‘indirect’ relation to reality: ‘delayed, selective, and above all “metaphorical”’. It concludes that each position may be traced back to a key strand in philosophical anthropology: the one emphasising man's unique freedom, the other that sees man's grasp of reality as uniquely interwoven with a background of meanings.

      This article is part of the current debate between representatives from the disciplines of philosophy of mind and cognitive sciences on one hand, and the phenomenologists, on the other, about the status of consciousness and the nature of action. The recovery of the critical work of Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor, who in 'The Explanation of Behaviour' (1964) faced the behaviorist challenge to humanism, and whose principles are still largely present in the cognitivists doctrines, allows us to argue against the reductionist claim that the human can be explained through the nonhuman, without downplaying the importance of the mechanistic research in the relevant areas, but attentive to the inescapably teleological nature of action. And against the insistent forgetfulness in regard to the status of animals and nonhuman animals which means to recognize the need for a more fluid demarcation between the human, the nonhuman and the inanimate.

      The notion of our moving to a "postsecular" age has become a topic of conversation. As has been seen with discussions of "secular", "secularity", and "secularism", much depends on what is meant by the term in question. This article surveys what some of the "postsecular" thinkers are saying and looks at how far their views actually differ from those of avowed secularists over the past century and a half. In light of this, it is then asked whether a "postsecular" situation is desirable or even possible.

      I propose an 'intellectual genealogy' of the widespread contemporary lifestyle called 'expressive individualism', tracing it back first to the cult of the artist as genius, which flourished during the 19th century, but which has been democratized and universalized in our time. I then trace it back one step further, somewhat surprisingly, to the altered depiction of Lucifer John Milton gives in his poem 'Paradise Lost'. Milton's Lucifer rejects not only Jesus as the highest creature, he rejects the Father as father; he announces 'I know none before me; I am self-begot.' To the extent that we embrace the ethic of 'expressive individualism', therefore, we are implicitly committed to Milton's Lucifer as an archetype for human fulfilment, which I suggest, however, is a toxic model.

      This article introduces some key aspects of the secularization thesis put forward in Charles Taylor's A secular age (2007), with a particular view to how these might illuminate and/or complicate the study of political religion. particularly helpful are Taylor's attention to nuance western theological controversies and his emphasis on how ideas and ultimate concerns are not only expressed in obviously ritualistic or 'religious' mass events, but are also embodied on the level of ordinary and habitual collective practices. however, the encounter between Taylor's work and the field of political religion also accentuates points of seemingly irresolvable tension. Taylor insists that the notions of an 'ordinary' world and autonomous individuals with an innate urge to transcend it-both notions underpinning most studies of political religion-cannot be accepted as a priori but must be historicized and explained. ultimately, the article encourages scholars of political religion to consider the critiques implicit in Taylor's thesis in the hope that this might generate new and better ways of studying 'ultimate concerns' and their place in modernity.

      Taylor acredita que no centro da modernidade ocidental está uma nova ordem moral que surge com a economia de mercado, a esfera pública e o auto-governo do povo. As instituições e estruturas da sociedade tecnológico-industrial limitam rigorosamente as opções, que forçam as sociedades tanto quanto os indivíduos a dar à razão instrumental um peso que nunca lhe concederiam em uma reflexão moral séria. A perspectiva tayloriana da autenticidade coloca a realidade sócio-política dentro de um contexto plenamente articulado com valores, significados e bens culturais. Nisso a governaça encontra espaços positivos e supera os impasses propriamente pós-modernos e será claramente proponente de opções valorativas e permeada pelo reconhecimento das identidades e pelo multiculturalismo.

Taylor’s Best Account principle, an epistemic  tool intended for use in multicultural societies, as one possible avenue for developing a more  conceptually robust comparative theology. Specifically, I engage Taylor’s Best Account, or  “BA” principle, with some of the trajectories suggested by Francis X. Clooney’s own  interreligious encounters, and Clooney’s theological reflections upon these experiences. I  compare Clooney’s interpretation of the dictum “to have a heart as large as the world” to  Taylor’s notion that the most adequate interpretation of human life is the one that makes the most sense in terms of the way human lives are actually lived (in essence, what Taylor means by “best account”), and use this as an opening to what I hope will be a wider conversation about the conceptual development of comparative theologies.

      In this article, using the recent work by Charles Taylor in A secular age as my point of departure, I will argue that jean-luc nancy enables us to think past the competing binary of atheistic and religious experience and allows us to surpass the present narratives of secularism. In A secular age, Taylor himself seeks a middle ground between atheism and religion, arguing that it is possible to open ourselves to the cross-pressures of modern existence that find us caught between scientific atheism and a need for spiritual and religious guidance. here, Taylor finds a way of picturing ourselves within a secular age, remaining faithful to scientific rationalism, but still open to religion and a sense of a higher good. however, as I shall demonstrate, in his thesis Taylor misrepresents the continental philosophical tradition (particularly Nietzsche and post-structuralism) that has itself sought to understand these cross-pressures of existence. taking this misrepresentation, and specifically his reductive and colloquial analysis of Nietzsche, camus, and derrida, as my point of departure, I provide an alternative manner of thinking through the work of these writers, one that leads to a detailed analysis of jean-luc nancy and his project the deconstruction of christianity. in this analysis I argue that nancy provides a manner of thinking that remains open and allows an experience of freedom, without seeking to close that sense of openness with explanation, nor maintaining that sense of openness with a conception of the divine.

      There are two senses by which technology can be seen as a new layer of living complexity: first, while biological systems can only appropriate 24 of the 91 natural elements into their metabolic processes, technological systems can imbue complex form into all 91 elements; second, this added capacity gives life the potential to expand across its current limit – the atmosphere of the Earth – in the same way as it expanded from the oceans to the land some five hundred million years ago. This essay explores what such an understanding of life and technology might mean to us, humanity, in the context of our current ecological and social catastrophe.

      Sociologists engaging with depth psychology have rarely drawn on the work of C. G. Jung. Part of the reason for this, I suggest, is Jung’s seeming tendency to credit, and be informed by, religious and non-rational perspectives. In this article I first highlight what sociologists might find problematic in Jung by comparing his views on the desacralisation of the modern world with Max Weber’s views on disenchantment. I then argue that Charles Taylor’s recent alternative account of disenchantment and secularity provides a framework within which Jung’s thought becomes more sociologically creditable despite, and even because of, its approach to matters of religion.

      Este ensayo es una investigación sobre las relaciones entre las concepciones de modernidad e identidad en la obra del filósofo canadiense Charles Taylor. En los escritos recientes de Taylor, el concepto de identidad es una herramienta útil para percibir claramente la concepción del yo, en el contexto de una nueva visión del espacio moral. En su búsqueda de las fuentes morales del yo, Taylor centra su análisis en la modernidad. Subraya en este período el rol de la interioridad, la preeminencia de la vida ordinaria de la familia y la economía y la emergencia de la naturaleza y la expresión, el giro expresivista. En sus ensayos de fines de la década de 1980 y en los 1990, Taylor le asigna gran significación al ideal expresivista de la autenticidad y explora sus relaciones con la idea de reconocimiento. Es en este lenguaje moderno de la autenticidad y el reconocimiento que podemos expresar mejor el renacimiento del nacionalismo y la religión como un símbolo de la identidad cultural. Otras consecuencias prácticas de estas distinciones y conceptos de Taylor pueden encontrarse en el multiculturalismo, la filosofía política y la filosofía del lenguaje. Al final del texto se exploran muy sintéticamente alguna críticas a las concepciones de la autenticidad de Taylor. En particular, me parece muy interesante la crítica del filósofo español José María González que se centra en la ausencia del barroco en el filósofo canadiense, y en la idea barroca de una identidad múltiple.

      Charles Taylor and Michel Foucault offer two very different descriptions and analyses of modern identities. While it can be argued that Taylor and Foucault are thematizing two very different aspects of identity -- Taylor is focusing on first-person, subjective, affirmed identity, and Foucault is focusing on third-person, or ascribed, category identity -- in practice, these two are very much intertwined. I argue that attention to identities of race, gender, class and sexual orientation demands that we combine a Foucauldian power analysis with a Taylorian understanding of authenticity. Taking Nancy Fraser's and Linda Gordon's example of the 'single black mother on welfare' as the 'icon of dependency' in America and Charles Taylor's example of the 'householder' who understands himself in relation to an ideal of independence, I show that neither individual can develop either self-knowledge or freedom without engaging in a quest for authenticity that involves both analysis of relations of power and identification with resistant identities. This requires moving beyond both Taylor and Foucault to an understanding of identity in terms of critical relations with defining communities.

      Modern life poses unprecedented challenges in dealing with the task of defining a stable identity and achieving self-fulfillment. It is possible sustain that is a legacy of modernity that the person is the main character of her own life and configure it by means of autonomous decisions. It is true that she must decide, although she has to do so from deep convictions if she does not want to be influenced by a culture that -- in Charles Taylor's perspective -- has trivialized the ideal of authenticity and has exalted a freedom that increases individualism. This essay is focused on the actions full of significance and the adherence to true goods that shape the identity and its narrative. The basics are in the anthropology and ethics of the philosopher just mentioned.

      While Taylor and Habermas respectively follow communitarian vs. cosmopolitan lines in their political theories, trends in each of their writings on religion in a global context have taken surprising turns toward convergence. however, what both views lack would be a further analytical and normative classification that better captures the pluralistic dimensions of this shared turn. I consider Taylor's critique of Habermas's appeals to constitutional patriotism that lead to recanting the exceptionalist thesis attributed to the U.S.A. in order to own up to the exceptionalism of european secularity. I then take up the more pragmatic concern of the religion in a global public, using their writings on islam in the U.S.A. and in the EU as a litmus test for the epistemic scope of our respective degrees of jamesian openness, referring to the inherent potentials for the moral, social and political integration of immigrants and minorities into a more encompassing cosmopolitanism.

      Varieties of secularism is an ethnographically rich, theoretically well-informed, and intellectually coherent volume which builds off the work of talal asad, Charles Taylor, and others who have engaged the issue of secularism(s) and in socio-political life. the volume seeks to examine theories of secularism/secularity and examine concrete ethnographic cases in order to further the theoretical discussion. whereas Taylor's magisterial work draws up the conditions and problems of a belief in God in western modernity, it leaves unexplored the challenges posed by the spiritual in modernity outside of the north atlantic rim. this anthology seeks to begin that task. it does so by suggesting that the kind of secularity described by Taylor is only one amongst others. by attending to the shifting relationship between proper religion and 'bad faiths'; between politically valorised and embarrassing spiritual phenomena; between the new visibilities and silences of magic, ancestors, and religion in democratic politics, this book seeks to outline the particular formations of secularism that have become possible in asia from china to indonesia and from bahrain to timor-leste. -- book description.

      The aim of this article is to analyze the famous confrontation between the right and the good. We start with the analysis of Charles Taylor about the different significances of the good and his criticism to a procedural and restrictive approach of the moral (such as Habermas and Kymlicka). Secondly, we review in depth the ethics of Taylor and we stress the vague remark of "the just" in the use of Taylor. Finally, we evaluate the deontological deficiencies of the ethics of Taylor and try to find other ways to complement it.

      In this article, we will elaborate into detail the ambiguous relation between Marcel Gauchet and Charles Taylor with respect to the role of religion in general and Christianity in particular in the rise of the secular age, as presented in respectively 'Le désenchantement du monde' and 'A Secular Age'. Our inquiry unfolds by multiple steps. We start by looking at the great resemblances between both books. Our path continues by examining differences in their approach. These differences are twofold. First, we will examine the strains within their 'at face value' similar methodologies, in particular the strains between a transcendental, logical approach on the one hand and sensitivity for the inherent contingent and historical character of religious evolution on the other. Second, we will investigate the consequences of their divergent definitions of religions. This investigation leads us to focus on four aspects: the role of the axial religions; the significance of Incarnation and Reformation; the significance of Christianity as the "religion of the departure from religion"; the possibility of religious 'conversion'.

      The topic of the article is practice theory. using a detailed example from public administration, we first discus the shortcomings of the model of practice as applied knowledge that we have dubbed the received view. the first half of the article is a chronology of successive adaptations of the received view. these adaptations have gradually brought the received view more in accordance with the practice-oriented critique in social theory and research of recent years. these adaptations fall short, however, of offering a theoretical account that explains the relationships among practice, knowledge, and context. these adaptations do not enable us to show, as we wish to do, how knowledge and context can be explained in terms of--and are evoked within--practice, and not the other way round--and that this transpires within real worlds each of which has its own unique constraints and affordances, histories and futures. in the second half of the article, we pick up on a relational conception of practice, knowledge, and context in which practice is distinct and primary. to develop this aspect of practice theory, we make use of some key concepts from modern japanese philosophy. the nondualist posture of japanese philosophy gives rise to a useful conceptualization of the dynamic and fluid relationships among practice, the characteristics of the situation at hand, and the epistemic elements of practice itself. in this final section, we introduce three concepts that help capture this dynamic, relational understanding of practice: "actionable understanding," "ongoing business," and "the eternally unfolding present.".

Central question is posed as: what attitudes merit promotion partners with incompatible cultural traditions to build democratic and multicultural political unit? It invokes a principle of argument the idea that open dialogue and mutual recognition are two attitudes unavoidable in any attempt to build healthy and multicultural democratic polity.

      There have been innumerable attempts to characterize personal identity either in terms of psychological continuity or in terms of the linear and self-referential process of reproduction of one's self. I will defend the thesis according to which personal identity emerges mainly as a process of transcendence of one's own "minimal self". It is precisely by means of this critical distancing from his self, I contend, that the individual learns to see himself under a new perspective as far as to experience his self as a surprise. Amazed at his own self, he lives a reawakening which leads him to a transformation of his way of living. This transcendence of the self cannot take place self-referentially but only through the force of an example provided by another person. Such act neither aims at the annihilation of the individual, nor does it contrast with self-love. It is in conflict merely with what Harry Frankfurt calls "self-indulgence". The idea of a transcendence of the self is already to be found in Plato, who fostered the overcoming of and purification from 'amathia' (in the sense of a "not knowing but pretending to know") and from an excessive love of oneself. Indeed, these latter would be the two grave diseases which render formless the soul of a human being, for they stand in the way of the 'cura sui'. The same theme will reappear in Max Scheler's phenomenological reduction, which endeavours to bracket egocentrism (construed as excessive love of oneself) in order to give a form to the personal identity.

      During the last few years two major volumes have been published, both greatly revised versions of earlier gifford lectures: Charles Taylor’s A secular age (2007) and raimon Panikkar’s the rhythm of being (2010). the two volumes are similar in some respects and very dissimilar in others. both thinkers complain about the glaring blemishes of the modern, especially the contemporary age; both deplore above all a certain deficit of religiosity. the two authors differ, however, both in the details of their diagnosis and in their proposed remedies. Taylor views the modern age—styled as “secular age”—as marked by a slide into secular agnosticism, into “exclusive humanism”, and above all into an “immanent frame” excluding theistic “transcendence”. although sharing the concern about “loss of meaning”, panikkar does not find its source in the abandonment of (mono)theistic transcendence; on the contrary, both radical transcendence and agnostic immanence are responsible for the deficit of genuine faith. for him, recovery of faith requires an acknowledgment of our being in the world, as part of the “rhythm of being” happening in a holistic or “cosmotheandric” mode. in classical indian terminology, while Taylor’s emphasis on the transcendence-immanence tension reflects ultimately a dualistic perspective (dvaita), Panikkar’s holistic notion of the rhythm of being captures the core of advaita vendanta.

      Taylor's 'Secular Age' defends a courageous thesis on the origins of the secular age and its true significance: (1) historically, it would be the consequence of the intensification of personal devotion in the late Middle Ages which would have led to a discovery of the autonomy of the individual; (2) the secular age would thus have less to do with a decline of belief, brought about by modern science, than with the emergence of new forms of ethical fullness which are not linked to transcendence. This essay first questions whether Taylor's broad historical thesis is cogently substantiated. In its second part, it argues that his philosophy, which rightly sees that the secular age implies a fragilization of faith, should be more preoccupied with the issue of the reasons of belief. It is far from certain that one can reduce the metaphysical option of belief to ethical considerations, as Taylor seems to think.

      This essay critically engages the concept of transcendence in Charles Taylor's A secular age. I explore his definition of transcendence, its role in holding a modernity-inspired nihilism at bay, and how it is crucial to the christian antihumanist argument that he makes. in the process, I show how the critical power of this analysis depends heavily and paradoxically on the Nietzschean antihumanism that he otherwise rejects. through an account of what I describe as naturalistic christianity, I argue that transcendence need not be construed as supernatural, that all of the resources necessary for a meaningful life are immanent in the natural process, which includes the semiotic capacities of homo sapiens. finally, I triangulate Taylor's supernatural account of transcendence, naturalistic christianity, and dreyfus and kelly's physis-based account of "going beyond" our normal normality in all things shining: Reading the western classics for meaning in a secular age.

      A current strand of thought teaches that all collective goods are convergent goods. Its main exponents are the welfarist and utilitarian conceptions in the fields of economics and philosophy, respectively. This assumption presupposes that "social wholes" are inevitably composed of "parts", and that therefore the base of each public or social good is composed of individuals who would be ultimately responsible for its existence. Thus, public goods would be goods where the interests and choices of social actors converge. This essay shows that, first, according to Taylor's understanding, not all collective goods are convergent goods. Some social goods can be considered as irreducibly social goods, whose justification lies in reflection on their meaning. Second, it discusses the contribution that the Hegelian notion of ethics had on the formulation of this argumen

      Recognition of cultural groups is an issue that puzzles those involved in the discussions around multiculturalism. Charles Taylor (1994) has done important groundwork in his ‘The politics of recognition’ where different possibilities of multicultural policy-making are discussed. this article concentrates on one social ontological problem that can be found in Taylor’s widely recognized theory. this article proceeds as follows. at first, Taylor's view on recognition is briefly introduced. this view potentially faces the reification problem, which states that recognizing a group that is not really an agent might result in misrecognition and disrespect of individual members of the group. the forms of misrecognition and disrespect range from homogenizing sets of individuals to forced identities anddissonance between individual and collective identities. after the problems of cultural recognition have been made clear, insights from the field of social ontology are brought into the picture. the agency of cultural groups is not self-evident, and in this paper it is argued that Taylor faces a problem when he grants agency to certain kinds of groups that are not really agents. this can be shown using the tools provided by contemporary analytical social ontology. finally, a tentative way of conceptualizing cultural recognition is offered. the suggestion is that, despite its vagueness, Taylor's position includes elements that enable incorporating a robust social ontological theory into it. if this is done, many of the worries stated in the reification problem might be avoided.

      This essay takes on the implicit claim in Taylor's A secular age, forecast in some of his earlier writings, that the desire for a meaningful life can never be satisfied in this life. as a result, A secular age is suffused with a tragic view of existence; its love of narratives of religious longing makes no sense otherwise. yet there are other models of religion that lend meaning to existence, and in the majority of this essay, I take up one model that Taylor ignores in A secular age, namely that of a God who is immanent in social life throughout religious law. turning to maimonides's account of divine law in the guide of the perplexed, I argue that a vision of the divine law that is divine because of its effects in society, namely the promotion of human welfare, can mend the relations between varying kinds of believers and unbelievers in a way that Taylor thinks is impossible. A God who commands laws is a God who inaugurates an "anthropocentric shift" long before current understandings of secularization see it beginning.

      The concept of "immanent framework" supports the entire hermeneutical and phenomenological enterprise of Charles Taylor's work. The latter insists on intrinsic liberty, constitutive of the immanent framework, firmly opposing the interpreters of sympathisers of a secular rupture or a necessary closure. Due to his grounding in Christianity, the "immanent framework" has preserved an openness, even when it has been directed from the outside, against all religious forms, and particularly against Christianity. As a result, the importance of Taylor's work resides principally in the transcendental analysis of conditions for belief in the "immanence framework.".

      AbstractThis article analyzes the insights and shortcomings of selected new atheist writings. the first section places the new atheists into critical dialogue with catholic philosopher Charles Taylor. here I argue that the most rhetorically compelling claim of new Atheism—that religion is at odds with the basic values of humanity—is also the point of their greatest philosophical deficiency. the second section addresses some of the scientific arguments that the new atheists advance against supernatural theism. I argue that although such arguments never succeed in disproving the existence of God, they do succeed in rendering some conceptions of God implausible.

      This study is interested in Taylor's thesis, according to which belief would be a possible option in a secularised world, naturally plunged into immanence, provided that, by some ideological bias or by the hidden experience of fulfilment, one does not arbitrarily declare the closure of this world on oneself. The author of 'A Secular Age' suggests that this thesis is tantamount to, by another ideological bias, to deny the logic itself of immanence, and to raise significant philosophical and theological questions concerning the possibility of belief in accepting fully the "immanence framework." He asks himself why religious belief in general and the Christian faith in particular should requires the moved adhesion to some previous world, even the preservation of the preaxial religious?

      The ongoing task of self-discovery, which I figure as self-finding, following Emerson, is integral to the human condition. While its results are always fragmentary, self-finding also conducts the currents of life in ways that establish conditions for our lives and those of others. This activity is mistakenly constrained by Charles Taylor, who argues that it remains tied to moral space. Charles Scott's work shows how moral space can be found in a manner that suspends the necessity of moral space and generates new possibilities.

      The objective of this work is to show Charles Taylor's theory of how religious identities are coordinated in the public scene. it would seem that religious expression should remain relegated to a private environment. However, Taylor's multiculturalism allows an inclusive view of the public space. firstly, we will address the different notions of identity and then of religious identity and its rationality. finally, we will approach the need for recognition and how this realization of religious identity should go beyond the tolerance of religious practice.

En segundo, de la identidad religiosa y de su racionalidad. por último, de la necesidad reconocimiento y de cómo la afirmación de la identidad religiosa debe ser algo más que permitir el culto de los creyentes.

      This article explores the relation between truth and meaning by staging a confrontation between Friedrich Nietzsche, the herald of nihilism who claimed that all previous foundations of morality have been undermined, and Charles Taylor, the advocate of 'strong evaluation' and the inevitability of meaningfulness. Central to this discussion is the relation between nihilism, truth, morality and meaning in the morally pluralistic context of a postmodern society. How do meaning and truth relate in a secular, post-traditional age? Does the longing for truth necessarily eliminate all possible forms of meaning, and, vice versa, does the human capacity to create meaning require that we suppress or even abandon the claim to truth altogether?.

      The present paper attempts to lay the foundations of a cultural approach for the study of social change, in which change is understood as a result of a conflict of self-interpretations between different groups or spheres in a society. this cultural approach seems to be particularly useful in explaining the emergence of social movements, which always presuppose a clash of views, say, between the aspirations of the people and the official doctrine of the state, just to mention the most typical case. the concepts and methodological principles offered here owe a great debt to the work of the Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor – although he never clearly spelled out a meta-theory on change. the paper will then try to show in what would consist such a Taylorian theory of social change, and this we do not only by reconstructing Taylor’s views on this issue, but also through a critical examination of range of key assumptions found both in mainstream social science and, more specifically, in existing theories of social change.

      Do we have a "duty to recognize culture"? The aim of this paper is to examine the following question: assuming we have reasons to respect or value recognition 'per se', do we on that background also have reasons to recognize culture? More specifically, does "culture" furnish a particular morally relevant fact with 'pro tanto' force, providing the basis for a duty to recognize culture? The paper first examines the concept of recognition and then proceeds to analyze "the recognition thesis", a general argument for why or how culture can be a salient part of what should be recognized. On that basis, the more specific theories of recognition proposed by Axel Honneth and Charles Taylor are examined, and it is argued that neither of these theories support a general duty to recognize culture.

      Charles Taylor called for a retrieval of the ethic of authenticity that has been distorted in modern notions of autonomy and self-fulfillment. via exchanges with others who matter to us, he proposed that human identities develop through the use of rich language draped in shared horizons of significance. the fostering of these dialogical ties beyond purely instrumental purposes, along with the recognition of the human dignity in all, may avert the fallen ideal of authenticity. nonviolent communication affords the skillful dialogue with others cradled in a shared sense of significance and supports the development of a meaningful identity-one that is formed through the realization of what exists beyond the self. the purpose of this article is to argue that nonviolent communication facilitates the retrieval of the ethic of authenticity. narratives from nursing students' journals on the use of nonviolent communication skills will be used to support the argument.

      The capability approach assigns a central role to the contexts within which social interactions take place, which make individual liberty achievable. however, an auxiliary concept is necessary to explain the contexts of collective action more accurately. in this paper I shall present Taylor’s concept of irreducibly social goods as a supplement to the capability approach. I shall also introduce the concept of hermeneutics as a strategy suitable for evaluating which capabilities are to be considered valid, as an alternative to aggregative methodologies. this conceptual development at the core of the capability approach demands to be framed by a normative criterion that enables us to distinguish between emancipatory and conservative contexts of social action; for that purpose I make use of the subject idealization that honneth and anderson present.

      The truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) of Canada was established to uncover and acknowledge the injustices that took place in indian residential schools and, in doing so, to pave the way to reconciliation. however, the TRC does not define reconciliation or how we would know it when (and if) we get there, thus stirring a debate about what it could mean. this article examines two theories that may potentially be relevant to the TRC’s work: Charles Taylor’s theory of recognition and nancy Fraser’s tripartite theory of justice. the goal is to discover what each theory contributes to our understanding of the harms that indigenous peoples suffered in residential schools, as well as in the broader colonial project, and how to address these harms appropriately.

      Dealing with ethics in health economics on socio-philosophical grounds is not yet well established. This paper shows how a liaison between the system theory of Luhmann and the philosophy of Taylor can be used to analyze and justify the incorporation of ethical considerations into health economics. One rationale for the incorporation of ethical consideration into health economics is the deficiencies in capturing all relevant needs of health system participants with common (welfare) economics. A second reason why health economics should account for ethical values is the fact that its decisions are already based on implicit value judgments. The impact of our approach is exemplified by the concept of 'quality adjusted life years'.

I set Taylor's discussion in context and present its main themes. I then consider a recent objection to Taylor's approach put forward by Stephen Houlgate: namely, that to see Hegel as using transcendental arguments would be to violate Hegel's requirement that his method in the 'Phenomenology' needs to be presuppositionless. I concede that Houlgate's criticism of Taylor has some force, but argue that nonetheless Taylor can suggest instead that though Hegel is not offering transcendental arguments here, he can plausibly be read as making transcendental claims, so that perhaps Houlgate and Taylor are not so far apart after all, notwithstanding this disagreement.

      This paper reflects critically on the late-modern obsession with health by presenting descartes as analmost ideal type of the health-conscious subject. descartes’ life, works and death are interpreted from the unlikely combination of the theoretical perspectives of Charles Taylor and jean baudrillard. despite significant differences, both of these theorists rely heavily on weber's concept of disenchantment, and each develops a ‘punctual’ concept in their analysis of modernity. specifically, the paper combines Taylor's ‘punctual self’, which can remake itself at will, with baudrillard's ‘punctual death’, which presents death as a meaningless terminus. viewing descartes through these punctual concepts, it becomes clear that the extensive anatomical investigations he conducted throughout his career shaped his uniquely modern stance towards death and health. however, descartes maintained an ambivalent relationship with traditional conceptions of death and health, which prevented him from fully embracing modern health-consciousness. the paper concludes with a reconsideration of descartes’ ‘premature’ death, which invites critical reflection on the role that the predictable behaviour of health-conscious subjects plays in the ever-expanding biomedical order.

Taylor). drugim riječima, autorica želi vidjeti može li nam aristotelova koncepcija nepokretnog pokretača poslužiti kao model za promišljanje osobnog identiteta, odnosno za utvrđivanje njegove moralne dimenzije. temu naznačenu u glavnom naslovu pokušat ćemo elaborirati u tri dijela: Prvi dio bavit će se općenito aristotelom, njegovim učenjem (o svijetu i čovjeku) s naglaskom na shvaćanje i tumačenje boga. drugi dio problematizira temeljnu koncepciju knjige lambda. U trećem dijelu elaborata autorica će se fokusirati na Taylorovu koncepciju osobnog identiteta, a kako je eksplicirana u njegovu najvažnijem filozofskom djelu sources of the self. Aristotle’s philosophical project, especially in the segments regarding his teaching about immovable firs mover explicated in his metaphysics, the book of lambda, was always a great inspiration not just to his followers, commentators, redactors and translators, but also for those who cannot hide admiration to his way of thinking or the way of positioning philosophical problems that are in the focus of his philosophical investigations. Aristotle’s contribution to the theory of knowledge and to the philosophy in general was undoubtedly the main impulse that motivated author of this artice to investigate and to rethink are there in aristotelian conception of God some traces that could serve as the methodological tool or base for investigating Taylor’s concept of personal identity grounded in Aristotle’s theology. in other words, the author has intention to show that the Aristotle’s idea of God as a certain way of thinking can be useful for understanding the moral base of personal identity. man as moral agent is a being who can be understood as a miracle of knowledge itself (skledar), as being with inherited crave of knowledge (Aristotle), nor as being who has deep sense of morality (Taylor). the theme that is announced in the main title of this elaboration the author will explicate as follows: The first part is focused on the aristotelian philosophical, anthropological and ethical account. in the second part of this elaboration we will discuss in detail Aristotle’s idea of God according to Aristotle’s teaching explicated in the book of lambda in metaphysics. the third part will be focused on Taylor’s conception of personal identity explicated widely in his the most popular philosophical work sources of the self, regarding some important information about Taylor’s philosophical orientation and his scientific, academic and political background that has formed his philosophical thinking.

      This paper identifies and analyzes the problem of historicism in Charles Taylor's work overall, but with particular emphasis on his most recent publication, A secular age. I circumscribe the problem of historicism through reference to the nineteenth-century german philosophical tradition in which it developed, in particular in the thought of wilhelm dilthey. I then trace the structural similarities between the notions of history to be found in the thought of Taylor and dilthey and how these structural similarities raise worries associated with the problem of historicism. I argue that the structural aporia of historicism evident in Taylor's work brings to light a live philosophical problem that is basic to theoretical debates in the study religion.

      A key aspect of contemporary lifelong learning theory, policy, and practice is the idea that, because of rapid changes in contemporary societies, there is a constant need for individuals to learn new knowledge and skills in order to adapt themselves to changing conditions. there is, therefore, an increased emphasis on the personal dimension of lifelong learning and on the need to reflexively engage in the (re)construction of one's self and identity. we can find this, for example, in anthony giddens's idea of the "reflexive project of the self." the authors argue that this idea is too individualistic and lacks recognition of the moral dimension of self-formation. it therefore not only leads to an impoverished conception of the self but also to an impoverished view of the role of learning in this process. the authors present ideas from Charles Taylor on self and identity to show the role that moral and intersubjective dimensions play in the formation of self and identity. the authors argue that Taylor's work points to a different form of lifelong learning in late-modernity, one that is more explicitly concerned with the moral dimension of lifelong learning and adult education.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      ¿Qué es el ser humano? Esta pregunta ha inquietado a multitud de filósofos a lo largo de la historia. La reflexión filosófica de Charles Taylor se inscribe en el horizonte de la modernidad, época caracterizada fundamentalmente por un cambio de actitud adoptado ante el hombre y ante la naturaleza. Esta nueva actitud moderna queda recogida en los términos "humanismo" y "naturalismo". El aporte de Taylor consiste en la recuperación del humanismo frente al naturalismo, esto es, de un enfoque genuino del ser humano que no quede silenciado por el método propio de las ciencias naturales y la revolución científica. En este libro profundizamos con precisión en el enfoque hermenéutico para descubrir el perfil de la antropología filosófica de Charles Taylor. Ello nos lleva a destacar cuatro rasgos del ser humano: el carácter auto-interpretativo, la capacidad dialógica, la dimensión moral y la cualidad narrativa. El libro concluye con un análisis acerca del realismo defendido por Taylor.

      Charles Taylor constituye uno de los referentes principales del debate filosófico contemporáneo y muy destacada es su presencia en el ámbito de la ética y la política. Nacido en Montreal ha elevado a la reflexión filosófica los problemas y circunstancias particulares del contexto socio-histórico del Québec en el que ha vivido. El interés de sus propuestas filosóficas, sin embargo, trasciende el ámbito canadiense proyectándose hacia los distintos modelos de sociedades modernas del panorama actual. En este libro reflexionamos en torno a 6 temas centrales de su ética y política: lo moral, el modelo de razón práctica, la identidad, la libertad, los bienes sociales y la modernidad. Para ello confrontamos a Taylor con algunos de los filósofos más destacados del panorama actual como Paul Ricoeur, Jürgen Habermas, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Alasdair MacIntyre y otros. En este libro el lector podrá encontrar un estudio sistemático y riguroso de la ética y la política de Charles Taylor fruto de una prolongada investigación.

      Isaiah berlin and stuart hampshire's early engagements with logical positivism and ordinary language philosophy are examined as historical and philosophical reference points for locating an alternative -- interpretive and humanist -- tradition that developed within analytic philosophy at oxford in the 20th C. berlin and hampshire's writings show the legacy of an enduring idealist philosophy, one that nonetheless had to be revised and reinvented against the new empiricist challenges brought on by the rise of analytic philosophy. berlin and hampshire rejected idealism's metaphysical pretensions of the absolute in favor of the new empiricism's insistence on grounding philosophy in experience, but staunchly opposed applying the latter's narrowly 'scientistic' view of knowledge to human experience, reaffirming the indivisible connections between epistemological issues and moral and political issues. the idealist themes they expounded are most clearly evident in their arguments for an interpretive philosophy in opposition to the reductivist tendencies of logical positivism, and in their defense of humanist liberalism against the drive of analysis toward naturalism where inquiry into human life is concerned. as such, berlin and hampshire reveal the strong interpretive and humanist ways of reasoning from within the analytic tradition itself. moreover, these interpretive and humanist themes continue to have strong echoes, this paper argues, in the development of postanalytic political theory in the latter half of the 20th century through today, as further evinced in the ideas of bernard williams (1929-2003) and Charles Taylor (b. 1931). by calling attention to such continuities, this paper reveals how moral and political philosophy in the anglophone world lay not moribund but continued to develop in the heyday of analytic philosophy from the late '30s to the '50s and onward.

      Benedict's opening encyclicals on hope and love invite reflection on the relationship between the three theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity to one another and, more broadly, to culture. to explore the range of these relationships, three models are laid out. model 1, drawing on thomas aquinas, presents the theological virtues as unfolding organically from each other as they perfect the natural human longings for wisdom and love. model 2, drawing on bernard lonergan, presents them in antagonistic and escalating confrontation with the sinfulness of society. model 3, drawing upon Charles Taylor and others, applies the dialectic reading of the previous model internally. this final model accounts for the tensions and even contradictions within christian life that contribute to the nonlinear and "cross-pressured" unfolding of the theological virtues in relation to each other and to the surrounding secular culture.

      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.

      The power of religion in the public sphere represents a rare opportunity to experience a diverse group of preeminent philosophers confronting one pervasive contemporary concern: What role does-or should-religion play in our public lives? reflecting on her recent work concerning state violence in Israel-Palestine, Judith Butler explores the potential of religious perspectives for renewing cultural and political criticism, while Jürgen Habermas, best known for his seminal conception of the public sphere, thinks through the ambiguous legacy of the concept of "the political" in contemporary theory. Charles Taylor argues for a radical redefinition of secularism, and Cornel West defends civil disobedience and emancipatory theology. eduardo mendieta and jonathan VanAntwerpen detail the immense contribution of these philosophers to contemporary social and political theory, and an afterword by craig calhoun places these attempts to reconceive the significance of both religion and the secular in the context of contemporary national and international politics.
    • Edyvane, Derek. "The Varieties of Cultural Perception: Multiculturalism After Recognition." European Legacy 16, no. 6 (10, 2011): 735-750.
      Doubts about the enterprise of cultural recognition have helped to fuel a backlash against the politics of multiculturalism in europe during the last decade. such doubts are well-founded. Charles Taylor's seminal discussion of the politics of recognition neglects serious difficulties that arise for the activity of recognition when the objective and subjective dimensions of cultural identity diverge. narratives of cultural “passing” help to highlight these difficulties and demonstrate that recognition can sometimes contribute to identity-based oppression. however, this conclusion does not commit us to a politics of cultural indifference or assimilation: The rejection of recognition does not entail the rejection of perception in general. iris murdoch's notion of “attention” provides a corrective to our understanding of recognition and thereby supplies a potentially superior ethical and perceptual basis for european multiculturalism in the twenty-first century.

      ‘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.

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.

      In this paper, I would like to introduce a complexity in the debate on the meaning of religion today. this complexity relates to the tension between an internal and an external perspective on religion. I will try to show how the disagreement between some protagonists in the debate and also the difficulties these protagonists face can be clarified by taking into account the difference between both perspectives. in the first part I discuss marcel Gauchet's view on the meaning of religion today. in the second part I confront Gauchet with an ambiguity in his definition of religion. this ambiguity can also be found in Gauchet's discussion with luc Ferry, although neither Gauchet nor Ferry are capable of adequately dealing with the problem. this is because both authors are bound to an external perspective on religion, which doesn't allow them to distinguish its specific content from other forms of meaningfulness. this is why we will concentrate in the third part on Taylor's internal approach to religion. however, in the fourth part, we will demonstrate how such an approach is in tension with the normative ambitions Taylor seems to cherish.

      Drawing on the works of philosophers Charles Taylor and joseph heath, this paper argues that the critique of consumerism is too often separated into an emphasis on "ideas" or "practices." Taylor's critique is set against the backdrop of his interpretation of the ideas and values that are constitutive of western selfhood. to engage in excessive consumption, on this view, is to betray the ideals underlying one's cultural identity. heath, by contrast, argues that critics of consumerism must avoid this kind of ideas-based social criticism because it is not only unproductive, but also illiberal and elitist. the phenomenon of consumerism must be approached, rather, by way of an institutional critique that treats excessive consumption as a collective action problem arising within the context of the market economy. the paper argues that while heath makes an invaluable contribution to the critique of consumerism, his misunderstanding of the importance of ideas is such that his critique ultimately lacks vigor and persuasiveness.

    • Gordon, Peter E. "Must the Sacred be Transcendent?" Inquiry 54, no. 2 (April, 2011): 126-139.
      In his book 'A secular age', Charles Taylor appeals to the metaphysical-normative distinction between "immanence" and "transcendence" as definitive for post-axial religion. on Taylor's view, therefore, those of us who embrace a fully secular modernity can be described as having abandoned "transcendence" to take up our lives wholly within the confines of the immanent frame, though he grants we may seek alternative satisfactions or "substitutes" for eternity. but the notion that any metaphysical-normative model of sacred experience can serve as an irresistible foundation is open to doubt if one recalls the heideggerian insight that any metaphysical picture both reveals and conceals aspects of our experience. Taylor's own description of sacred and nonsacred experience within the immanent frame seems to rely upon this foundational distinction, without entertaining the possibility that the language itself may very well actually distort what our experience is like. this paper pursues the above objections to Taylor's argument, focusing special attention on the assumption that one can judge aesthetic experience with the criteria we have inherited from post-axial religion. the overwhelming authority of the axial tradition might seem to validate questions such as "is there an object?" or "is the experience purely immanent?" but to such questions we might respond that such language simply has no grip on the phenomena. any such talk of "substitution" might therefore be understood as a historical remnant in Taylor's book of the traditional monotheist's critique of idolatry.

      In this article I discuss the concept of self and society in Charles Taylor's philosophy. to start with, I raise the question whether it is appropriate to refer to Taylor as "communitarian" or, according to hermeneutics, it is more accurate to refer to a "dialogical" dimension of the self instead. this discussion leads us to the term "holistic individualism" as a proposal to understand the relationship between person and society. finally, I consider the irreducibility of social goods as one of the major benefits that entails the hermeneutical approach from the holistic individualism.

      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.

      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.

      In 'the ethics of authenticity', Charles Taylor speaks of the malaises of modernity in which individualism and authenticity lose their moral force by becoming simply a type of relativism and/or soft despotism. in contrast, Taylor suggests that individualism and authenticity need to be understood as holding moral salience through the dialogical nature of human life and the external horizons of meaning necessary to the very formulation of the authentic self. individual choice only makes sense when some choices are more socially, politically, and/or ethically valuable than others. Taylor's discussion of the ethics of authenticity can be applied to the religious movement of contemporary paganism and the marked hesitation on the part of pagans to claim any expected responsibility on the part of other pagans toward nature and/or the environment.

      Mit seinem Buch A Secular Age hat der Sozialphilosoph Charles Taylor einen aufsehenerregenden Alternativentwurf zum klassischen Säkularisierungsparadigma vorgelegt. Das Ziel dieses Artikels ist es, ihn auf die religionssoziologische Diskussion um Säkularisierung und deren verschiedenen Teilprozesse zu beziehen. Es werden drei Ansprüche formuliert, an denen Alternativentwürfe zu messen sind. Erstens müssen sie verständlich machen, warum „Säkularität“ zu einer so wichtigen Selbstbeschreibungskategorie moderner Gesellschaften werden konnte. Zweitens müssen sie das in Jahrzenten religionssoziologischer Forschung akkumulierte Wissen über Entkirchlichung mit den von Kritikern hervorgehobenen Befunden genuin moderner religiöser Vitalität integrieren. Und drittens müssen sie die vielfältigen Muster der Differenzierung religiöser und politischer Ordnung im Gesellschafts- und Kulturvergleich beschreiben und erklären können. In kritischer Auseinandersetzung mit Taylor werden Grenzen kulturalistischer Theorien moderner Säkularität und bleibende Aufgaben historisch-soziologischer Forschung zu Religion in der Moderne identifiziert.   Charles Taylor's book A Secular Age is a widely appraised alternative to the classical paradigm of secularization theory. This article situates this alternative theory within the debate of sociology of religion on secularization and its sub-components. Three requirements are formulated that alternative conceptions would have to met. First, they need to understand why „secularity" became such a prominent category of self interpretation in modem societies. Second, they have to be able to integrate years of cumulative sociological research on sub-processes of secularization with findings on genuinely modem forms of religious vitality emphasized by the classical paradigm's critics. And in light of on-going debates over multiple modernities, they would need to describe and explain the varieties of differentiation in societal and cultural comparison. In critical discussion of Charles Taylor's contribution, the limits of culturalist theories of modem secularity as well as some tasks for historical-sociological research on religion in modernity are identified.

      This article deals with the role played by culture within a part of multicultural literature. by studying the positions of Charles Taylor and will kymlicka it provides an introduction to the criticism of reductionism made against approaches based on the intrinsic or instrumental value of culture. at the epistemological level these approaches are held to assimilate cultures to closed sets with strictly defined outlines and content. at the political level a view of this kind is open to three types of objections. it is said to favour the propagation of stereotypes, to influence the relations of power within communities and to cause a deterioration in the distribution of resources. the idea put forward in this article is that the criticism of reductionism makes it possible to reveal a turn in the direction of more dynamic approaches within multiculturalism.

      In this paper I discuss the managerial template that has become the normative model for the organization of the university. in the first part of the paper I explain the corporatization of academic life in terms of the functional relationships that make up the organizational components of the commercial enterprise and their inappropriateness for the life of the academy. although there is at present a significant body of literature devoted to this issue, the goal of this paper is to explain the genesis of this phenomenon through a reference to the ideology that characterizes our modern secular age. this is the subject of the second part of the paper. most texts seek to explain this ideological development either through the ever increasing dominance of economic rationalism, perceived conservatism of collegial forms of governance, the necessity to transfer fiscal responsibility in tight budgetary periods, the decline of the keynesian 'welfare consensus', or the legacy of the power regimes that began to take shape in the liberal societies of the 19th century. I trace this development to the beginnings of modernity and the cartesian bifurcation that separated the material world from its spiritual and intellectual source and thereby overthrew the hierarchy of related values that informed both nature and human organization. in articulating this argument I make reference to the thought of jacques maritain, Charles Taylor and rené guénon.

      This article uses the interpretive work of dreyfus, gadamer, Nussbaum and Taylor to explore the natural environment as a shared ecological and social commonality. I focus on the supposition that the natural world possesses intrinsic value and new political structures are needed. I explore how we might better engage with multiple cultures concerning matters at the heart of ecological politics. political interpretivists offer processes of equal facilitation and maximization that work to include environmental values in democratic thought. interpretivists differ from earth-based and neoconservative environmentalists, who dominate modern debates. the differences involve understanding the role of practical reasoning and how humanity interacts with the natural world. intriguingly, then, interpretivists concur with deep ecologists that nature possesses intrinsic value, but do so guided by an ideal of authenticity.

      O presente trabalho irá analisar o conceito de classes sociais a partir de uma perspectiva teórica da produção de identidades e coletividades e do papel do sujeito social em obras seminais de pierre bourdieu e chales Taylor. em ambos os autores, o conceito de classes sociais aparece atrelado a uma idéia central de sujeito, que perpassa o campo da ação política, definindo temporal e espacialmente as possibilidade objetivas da ação subjetiva. buscando um diálogo crítico entre esses dois autores, oberva-se como o projeto de revisão do conceito de classe social proposto por bourdieu está inscrito num projeto crítico de reconhecimento tanto na sua vertente econômica como sócio-cultural. the present paper will analyze the concept of social class from a theoretical perspective of the production of identities and communities and the role of the social subject within seminal works of pierre bourdieu and Charles Taylor. in both authors, the concept of social class appears connected to a central idea of subject that pervades the field of political action, defining temporally and spatially the objective possibilities of subjective action. seeking a critical dialogue between these two authors, it is observed how the revision project of the concept of social class proposed by bourdieu is engraved in a critical project of recognition both in its economic and socio-cultural realms.

      In moving toward the articulation of a new philosophy for drama/theatre education, the recent work of performance theorist jill dolan and philosopher Charles Taylor is presented. dolan's 'utopian performative' suggests that in certain performance contexts, spectators experience "glimpse(s) of utopia". Taylor's 'social imaginary' suggests that society itself is created and sustained by collective acts of the imagination that are possible to harness in the cause of social justice and change. drawing on the work of these thinkers, and selected others, a new philosophical way of seeing drama/theatre education as 'the collective creation of socially-imagined performative utopias' is offered.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      This paper examines Charles Taylor's case against complete secularization in 'A secular age' in the light of Nietzsche's and heidegger's critiques of the potential for nihilism inherent in different kinds of philosophical appeals to "transcendence". the heideggerian critique of metaphysics as ontotheology suggests that the theoretical pluralism Taylor rightly embraces is more consistently thought of as following from a robust ontological pluralism, and that Taylor's own commitment to ontological monism seems to follow from his own desire to leave room in his theoretical account for an ontotheological creator God who stands outside the world and ultimately unifies its meaning. the Nietzschean critique contends that any such appeal to something that transcends the limits of human finitude remains nihilistic, insofar as such valorizations of the otherworldly undermine our capacity to appreciate and experience the genuine meaningfulness of human existence in its this-worldly finitude. the paper explores Taylor's response to this Nietzschean critique, showing that Taylor "deconstructs" the crucial distinction between immanence and transcendence that any "exclusively humanist" worldview must presuppose. Taylor's response only partly resolves the problem, however, because the Nietzschean can still draw a defensible distinction between legitimate and meaningful appeals to transcendence and illegitimate and nihilistic ones. the paper concludes by suggesting that traditional appeals to a transcendent creator God, a heavenly afterlife, and so on, continue to run afoul of Nietzsche's critique of the nihilism of otherworldliness, and that we would do better to explicitly abjure such otherworldly appeals.

      The article offers the insights of moral philosopher Charles Taylor on the give and take between belief and unbelief jostle. Taylor states that the call in following jesus christ and incorporating his church is a strong and loud pull of belief in him. he also discusses transgression in self-fulfillment, life dissatisfaction, and the role of expressive individualism on religious quest.

      An essay is presented on philosopher Charles Taylor's work with reference to the concept of transcendence. The author states that the concept of the incomprehensible God in Western culture and its evolution is depicted in Taylor's work. The author highlights the secularization drawn from the influence of the image of God as the "other." Taylor defines Christianity as the religion of departure from religion.

      J. wentzel van huyssteen uses calvin schrag's notion of transversal rationality to argue for a “cognitive parity” between the sciences and religion, implying a degree of separation and equality that can be problematized. drawing on lawrence blum's criticism of Charles Taylor's “The politics of recognition,” this essay argues that culture and its diverse products, like science and religion, cannot be treated as abstract totalities to which a value can be determined and affixed. instead, we could focus on what distinctive values are realized by the cultural form in its own right, rather than compelling a comparison using a language of equivalency. this shift in focus from “equal respect” to “cultural respect” does not mean that one cultural form is superior to the other, only that the framework of equivalency be jettisoned. science and theology operate in different but shared dimensions, such that science might better be understood as a tool within the larger theological enterprise. the problem, then, is not the universalism of science but the exclusivity of scientism. science should be understood then as a source within theology, in the same manner as human experience, tradition, and scripture, and approached using rational judgment, in dialogue and discernment within a believing community.

      In this paper, we discuss martin heidegger's position on the so-called Godlessness of our current age. rather than holding that we must either await the advent of God or enthusiastically embrace our Godlessness, heidegger holds that a third option is available to us: We could fundamentally change the way we experience the world by leaving behind all remnants of metaphysical thinking. in section II, we show that, despite the absence of God, our current historical moment shares a metaphysical structure with the God-oriented epochs that preceded it. A metaphysical epoch involves a single, all-encompassing understanding of the entities in the world and how they ought to be arranged, usually established by a God who serves as a paradigm for those entities. in section III, we discuss how the metaphysical age arose in the first place; the polytheistic world of the ancient greeks was tumultuous and unpredictable, such that its inhabitants began to desire a stable, planned-out world that could be established by a single God. in the final section, we examine heidegger's obscure discussion of the last God, who is to lead us out of metaphysics by a fundamental shift of the sort that led us into metaphysics. we discuss the basic features that will define a postmetaphysical age, and the last God's role in bringing this age about. we argue that this age resembles the premetaphysical age of the ancient greeks, but rather than being polytheistic, it will be "polydivinistic".

      In their recent debate, hubert dreyfus rejects john McDowell's claim that perception is permeated with "mindedness" and argues instead that ordinary embodied coping is largely "nonconceptual." this argument has important, yet largely unacknowledged consequences for normative social theory, which this article demonstrates through a critique of Charles Taylor's 'verstehen' thesis. if dreyfus is right that "the enemy of expertise is thought," then Taylor is denied his defense against charges of relativism, which is that maximizing the interpretive clarity of social practices unequivocally makes for better practices. 'verstehen' social theory, I argue, must consider both the gains 'and' losses of the attempt to make the meaning of our practices explicit.

      The article examines Charles Taylor's critique of the model of procedural liberalism and the modern conception of practical rationality. the starting point is that Taylor's critique is based on contributions of the substantive philosophical tradition, which makes possible an alternative liberalism, different from procedural liberalism. to prove this point of view, the paper starts out with an analysis of Taylor's approach to the debate between alternative liberalism and procedural liberalism. secondly, it explains the conception of practical rationality suggested by Taylor in his attempt to justify alternative liberalism. finally, it affirms that Taylor's conception of practical rationality questions the instrumental world view that justifies the priority of individuals and their rights in society.
    • de Vries, Hent. "The Deep Conditions of Secularity." Modern Theology 26, no. 3 (2010): 382-403.
      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.

      How to give testimony of the sacred with philosophical credibility? why sacralise the secular? what hopes hermeneutics offer to a contemporary moral philosophy open to religions? how to express in the public domain of modern societies the dialogue between ethics and religion? we present three answers in a new philosophical context that we call the "hermeneutical age of morality". we divide our work into four parts, the first explains the title, and the next three present three possible models of rapprochement between the sacred and the secular. all three acknowledge that we are facing new times that require translating from the sacred to the secular; from religious beliefs to the constitutional norms. we start introducing Habermas's normative approach, which retrieves the legitimacy of religion; we continue with Taylor's social philosophy which elaborates the eclipse of religion and end up with ricoeur's ethics, expressed in the valuable analogy of the activity of translating.

      This article seeks to shed light on some of the problematic assumptions underpinning the contemporary debate over the constitutional identity of the european union. the central claim put forward here is that the development of the european union's constitution is significantly constrained by what Charles Taylor has described as the modern social imaginary. the constraint operates at two levels. first, modern understandings of constitutionalism typically ignore or underemphasize its dynamic and historical characteristics and its relationship with the self-understanding of political subjects. thus, modern constitutionalism fails to acknowledge the importance of historically conditioned assumptions involved in the formation of the identities of political subjects. in short, it fails to understand constitutionalism as a 'regime'. second, modern constitutionalism's blind-spots result in a relatively unreflective adherence to a particular type of constitutional regime: The modern economy and its associated 'consumerist' form of political citizenship.

      The aim of this essay is to argue against the atomistic conception of man that underlies much of modern philosophy and to support, in contrast, a hermeneutical approach that makes possible to defend a holistic individualism. for this, starting from the distinction of Charles Taylor between "ontological issues" and "advocacy issues", I am going to focus on the presuppositions of individualism. what does holistic individualism mean? thus, I try to clarify whether it is possible to defend such holistic individualism, and what advantages in terms of irreducible social goods and significative freedom brings for the articulation and development of the individual and modern society.

      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.?

      Contemporary ethical theory ought to take both the biological and cultural constitution of human subjects into account. but the coupling of these constraints raises questions about the scope of each. in this paper I defend the view that, rather than predetermining human moral sensibility, or founding a universal ethic on that basis, the biological constitution of human beings actually prefigures their wide variability across cultures and argues for the open-endedness of questions of meaning and value. I defend this conception against owen flanagan's neo-darwinian "eudaimonics" as well as against various forms of ethical 'a priorism' and ethical skepticism, making critical use of Charles Taylor's hermeneutic conception of human moral valuation.

      The essay reviews Charles Taylor's secularization theory in "A secular age" and focuses, despite an overall positive evaluation, on following shortcomings. Taylor proceeds as a historian of ideas and institutions; he does not really address questions in philosophy of religion. thus, his criticism of deism does not see that the denial of God's interventions against the laws of nature was based on taking the belief in God's atemporality seriously. Taylor also underrates the moral arguments that led to an equal treatment of all religions; giving a privileged status to one's own faith without further arguments was regarded as parochial.

      Charles Taylor defines the concept of "social imaginary", in 'modern social imaginaries', as "self-understanding" of a society, but also as "repertory" of the practices which can be adopted by society's members. through this dual definition, the concept conjures at the same time an hermeneutic approach and a wittgensteinian approach focusing on the analysis of constitutive social rules. to highlight this conception of social imaginary, I consider the concept of "background" from Taylor's earlier works. this leads me to contend that Taylor's theory does not make room for the wittgensteinian approach. social practices do not need to rely on the individuals' common understanding of their whole society to be possible. as a consequence, his concept of social imaginary allows us to understand cultural and political identity but not the historical constitution of social practices.

      We argue that the development of diagnostic tools, especially for home use, will heighten a number of ethical challenges. this paper will explore some of the ethical implications of home-based self-testing diagnostic devices for the autonomous and relational dimensions of the person. this will be facilitated by examining the impact of diagnostic devices for individual autonomy, for the delivery of accurate diagnosis and for the personal significance of the information for the user. the latter will be examined using Charles Taylor's view of personhood and his emphasis on human agency and interpretation. while the ethical issues are not necessarily new, the development of home-based self-testing diagnostic devices will make issues regarding autonomy, accuracy of information and personal significance more and more demanding. this will be the case particularly when an individual's autonomous choices come into conflict with the person's relational responsibilities.

      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?

      Synthesising martha Nussbaum's study of the emotions and the capabilities approach to human development with Charles Taylor's claim that authentic identities ought to be constructed dialogically against "horizons of significance," the author identifies critical features of authenticity that are then applied to the context of adult educators, learners, and pedagogies. with the purpose of surfacing the context-transcendent structure underlying the experience of struggling for authenticity, the article takes as its point of departure the context of coming out about one's sexual orientation. the metaphor of "coming out" is subsequently extended to the process of striving for authenticity also in other contexts. this striving involves overcoming complacency and compliance and engaging in contestation, has both a psychological and sociological dimension, and is associated with the civic virtues of courage and compassion. the author also speculates on why authenticity is perceived as a timely notion by many adult and higher education professionals.

      Badiou’s ontological work draws attention to multiplicities – the oneness of ontology, which he explains can only become ontologically differentiated into events or sites through political, artistic or amorous practices that philosophies can think and invent from. he also draws attention to the fusion of events and sites, and he explains that events (such as producing special issues of journals located in particular sites) are reflexive. he also tells us, however, that the reflexive structure of an artistic or scientific event (such as producing a special issue of a journal) is not always immediately evident. in writing this response article I work with this concept – and probe how the production of events (such as a special issue of a journal produced in a specific site) may be reflexive. this is the purpose of the article. this response article therefore probes some of the political, structural and intellectual processes that come to shape scholarship in different sites, and here I draw on the insights into social imaginaries provided by Charles Taylor to develop a perspective on the scholarship that is reflected in this journal. through this, I seek to open the notion of multiplicities, oneness and the particularities of our social imaginaries as themes for thinking about educational scholarship events produced within and across geo‐physical, socio‐ecological and socio‐economic spaces in different parts of the world.

      Contemporary political practice in liberal democracies scorns any reference to metaphysics. political philosophers as diverse as eric voegelin, Charles Taylor, and Jürgen Habermas accept that we live in a postmetaphysical world. but a viable political philosophy cannot ignore such persistent metaphysical questions as those about the self (the putative subject of dignity and rights) and about the essential properties of the state (whether a thing, or merely artificial, or something in between). bernard lonergan's sketch of metaphysics in 'insight' offers a promising beginning for such a contemporary metaphysics, based, as it is, on the dynamic and self-transcending process of inquiry.

'A secular age' remains an argument against the long modern history of the formation of what might be termed, "this-sided" philosophical anthropologies of human self-formation which Taylor argues cannot address the problem of indeterminate transcendence.

    • Taghavi, Seyed Mohammad Ali. "Taylor: Transcendental Conditions of Human Agency and Two Versions of Liberalism." International Journal of Humanities 17, no. 2 (2010): 55-71.
      Taylor argues that procedural liberalism is not viable, or is insensitive to the conditions of social and political possibility, since it cannot justify the political furtherance of common goods. this is because the ontology and epistemology behind it disregards the “transcendental conditions” of human identity and the “dialogical” way of its formation. Taylor’s own version of liberalism, on the other hand, does not eschew promoting collective goals, such as cultural survival, and is supported by these transcendental conditions. however, his charge of non-viability against the liberalism of rights, and his argument for a liberalism of promoting collective goods, on epistemological and ontological grounds, are not convincing. although he is right that rights-based theories of justice cannot account for promoting collective goals, such as a culture or a language, that liberal societies at large advance, these are goals that go beyond ensuring the survival of the society or its liberal characteristics, and are about preserving the distinctness of the society.

      People discussing science and religion usually frame their conversations in terms of essentialist assumptions about science, assumptions requiring the existence (but not the specification) of criteria according to which science can be distinguished from other forms of inquiry. however, criteria functioning at a level of generality appropriate to such discussions may not exist at all. essentialist assumptions may be avoided if science is understood within a broader context of human practices. in a philosophy of practices, to label a practice as "scientific" is to make a practically motivated provision for a way of speaking. Charles Taylor and joseph rouse have produced complementary philosophies of practice that promote this kind of understanding. in this essay I review the work of Taylor and rouse, identify apparent residues of essentialism that each seems to harbor, and offer a resolution to some of their disagreements. I also criticize a form of essentialism commonly employed in christian circles and outline an antiessentialist view of science that may be helpful in science-and-religion discussions.

      Charles Taylor argues that recognition begins with the politics of "self-image." given the centrality of "self image" to his politics of recognition, it is striking that Taylor, himself, represents 'disabled people' in language that is both limiting and depreciating. the author argues such negative self-images are not unique to Taylor but endemic to modern political thought from john locke to john Rawls, as the disabled ("irrational" and/or mentally disabled/ill people) are constituted in direct opposition to the rational person and/or citizen. using contemporary social theories of disability, as articulated by disabled scholars and advocates, the author concludes that such negative self-images must be purged from political theory and replaced with an alternative theory of personhood/citizenship rooted in the image of interdependency.

      My aim is to explore how the question of personhood is tied to the notion of space -- both physical and moral space. in particular, I argue against the cartesian view of the disengaged/disembodied self and in favour of Charles Taylor's and martin heidegger's view of the engaged and embedded self. I contend that space, as the transcendental condition for the possibility of human agency, is the place where questions of identity are possible and where answers, if any, are to be found. thus, personal identity and space are inexorably tied and dependent on one another.

      Taylor and honneth have emphasized the importance of the intersubjective recognition of cultural identity as an integrating part of the development of moral conscience in individuals in current societies. multiculturalism, through the key category of "recognition", has sought foundations in the new political legitimation, based on the recognition of cultural rights. in this way, multiculturalism has reached two important objectives: On the one hand, the universal and equal sociocultural dignity of cultures, and on the other, recognition of the tutelage of the sole identity of a particular ethnic-cultural group. nevertheless, intercultural philosophy has overcome the limits of multiculturalism, and this has led panikkar to define dialog as the art of knowing one's self and the other, as awareness that both knowings are incomplete. our western culture has been dominated by diverse myths, which are more difficult to change than ideas. panikkar indicates that 'myths' has a longer life and deeper, more subtle roots than 'logos' in individuals. he teaches how some collective myths have been dangerous in the forms of racism or nationalism.

Taylor's position in this matter is presented against nozick's theory of entitlement, berlin's concept of negative freedom, as well as the idea of state neutrality regarding the concept of the good life put forward by such contemporary liberal thinkers as Rawls, dworkin, and ackerman. the focal point of the paper is to show that the remedy for the public malaises resulting from individualism (the atomization of social bonds, the threat of losing political freedom) does not have to lie in the discreditation of individualism but can be found in a certain interpretation of it. according to Taylor, individualism can be seen as a moral ideal whose proper fulfillment has the following conditions of possibility: The demands posed by our dialogical nature and by the horizon of meaning.
    • Benschop, Gerrit J. "A Secular Age: Open Toward the Transcendent." Philosophia Reformata 74, no. 2 (2009): 142-152.
      In his book 'A secular age', Charles Taylor rejects the view that modernity must lead to a steady decline of religion and argues that although the conditions of belief changed, causing a destabilization and recomposition of religious forms, our modern world still 'can' and 'should' be open to the transcendent. I attempt to give a general overview of 'A secular age' by describing shifts in worldview with respect to nature, self, society and God. finally, I discuss how Taylor's message relates to that of reformational thinking. Taylor's description of motivations to regard the world as closed to the transcendent corresponds well with the reformational analysis of the humanistic ground motives of freedom and nature. Taylor, however, seems to consider our current worldview as a neutral basis and religion as an optional add-on.

      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.

      Culture is a potent source of ethical theory. this is evident in the realization of one's socially-embedded self. one's communal self is always already in an ethical attempt to live a good life. the social beliefs and practices of communities carry with it their conceptions of the good, which in turn are made practical in one's never-ending negotiation about one's identity. the dialectics between the self and the community demands a more contextualized understanding of this struggle in an attempt to capture the good life in terms that are intelligible to us.

      This article presents the hermeneutical role of culture in the process of understanding oneself seen within the larger context of culture. chosen as an interpretive framework to argue for this point is the contribution of Charles Taylor's dynamic theory of culture. the question of the self is interwoven with the discourse of culture. every identity is rooted in a cultural context, which informs the identity's unique character. that is why an adequate account of ethnic identity involves an elaboration of the fundamental relation between the self and culture. A deeper understanding of this truth can lead to meaningful encounters of the living realities of cultures.

      This article argues that while Charles Taylor's commitment to antinaturalism in the human sciences has been constant, the grounds for that commitment have changed significantly over time. what began as his critique of naturalism on empirical grounds was refashioned into a commitment on moral grounds, or more accurately, on the basis of there being no distinctly separable grounds between the scientific and the moral. Taylor shifted his descriptive phenomenological defence of antinaturalism to cast a much broader critique against an empiricist epistemology he saw underpinning all naturalist approaches in the human sciences. he calls attention to the speciousness of the ontological commitments of an empiricist epistemological outlook that tries to separate human agency from moral ontology, which he argues is itself a moral position. whether we want to go along with Taylor's specific moral outlook or not, what his arguments about the human sciences teach us is twofold: (1) Taylor's descriptive phenomenology shows how the scientific language of the natural sciences often cannot explain human phenomena without contradiction; (2) Taylor's hermeneutic realism teaches us the extent to which defending an antinaturalist philosophy of human sciences today necessitates moral argument.

      Charles Taylor in 'A secular age' describes the modern secular age as one in which "the eclipse of all goals beyond human flourishing...falls within the range of an imaginable life for masses of people". this article reflects on his historico-analytic investigation of the emergence of modern secularity and his account of how it shapes the current conditions of belief. Taylor challenges the widespread presumption against belief mainly on ethical considerations, especially what counts as human fulfillment. the article argues that he fails to deal adequately with epistemic considerations bearing on belief and unbelief. furthermore, his argument is weakened by a surprising absence of attention to the primary account of human fulfillment in greek philosophy as a central element in the christian tradition.

      Cet article traite de la question de la relation entre la vérité, la liberté et l'identité dans la pensée de michel foucault. en considérant la critique de foucault par Charles Taylor, dans son article "foucault on freedom and truth", j'analyse les implications de l'hypothèse répressive sur la sexualité et la prétendue impossibilité d'une libération par la vérité. le refus par foucault de considérer l'identité homosexuelle comme une identité fixe relevant d'une connaissance de soi nous conduit à son projet d'existence esthétique. cette vie créatrice, comme nous le verrons dans ses cours 'le gouvernement de soi et des autres', implique un certain rapport à soi qui nécessité néanmoins un rapport à l'autre. au sein de ce rapport, ainsi que dans le vouloir-dire-vrai de la 'parrêsía', on trouve des conceptions de vérité et de liberté qui échapperaient à la critique Taylorienne et qui s'ouvrent sur d'autres possibilités de pratiques de la liberté.

      In this paper I analyse Charles Taylor's notion of horizons fusion, which comes from gadamer's hermeneutics (as Taylor avows). two problems are discussed: On the one hand, the role of this notion regarding the understanding between different comprehensive schemes and, on the other hand the ambiguity of fusion in itself, insofar as it can be seen either as the fusion of different horizons, or as an internal fusion in the context of one horizon. thus, the first possibility becomes a mere appearance.

      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.

      The recent retrieval of christian humanism by Charles Taylor and nicholas boyle invites further theological elaboration; in particular, to clarify the relationship between their humanist concern for the common good and their christian desire for religious transcendence. jacques maritain provides some such elaboration by grounding christian humanism on the doctrine of the incarnation. this article complements that foundation through a consideration of the thomistic doctrine of hope, which describes how the believer approaches God under the aspect of the human good. hope therefore includes, in a single virtue, the two potentially disparate elements of contemporary christian humanism. concluding reflections on recent interpretations of vatican II and on religious fundamentalism give some historical substance to this theoretical claim.

      Taking the feminist ethics of care and Taylor's philosophy of the self as a point of departure, I pose the question whether emotions, as they postulate it, can be assumed to be "authentic" and in that capacity provide moral guidance. relying on well-known sociological texts by arlie hochschild, norbert elias and eva illouz, I show that the violence-monopolizing nation-state along with the capitalist system of production and consumption have worked together to make us abandon, suppress, marginalize and modify what we possibly could refer to as "authentic" emotions. as a result, our emotional lives, if still open to "authentic" feelings at all, hang suspended between these and the cultural codes and rules prescribing what we should feel. put even stronger, emotional ambivalence or schizophrenia is a typical phenomenon of our times, and thus emotions cannot be constitutive of our morals. I also point out that what jaggar calls recalcitrant (and I call subversive) emotions are as constructed as conformist emotions. taking side with jaggar against Taylor, I suggest that the emancipatory potential of the (constructed) subversive emotions should be measured against the standard of human rights, rather than, as Taylor argues, in terms of everyday moral concerns.

      This article argues that notwithstanding martin heidegger's explicit intentions to the contrary, his existential analysis in 'being and time' provides more than the mere conditions for the possibility of ethics. more specifically, heidegger's account of 'solicitude', where he distinguishes between 'leaping in' for and 'leaping ahead' of the other, can be read as an account of recognition that has normative implications. this account is developed in light of both Charles Taylor and axel honneth's positions on recognition. it is concluded that heidegger's phenomenological elaboration of recognition goes beyond the transcendental aspect of his project of fundamental ontology.

      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.

A question arises out of the search for the sources of the philosophical thought of Taylor: Aristotle, hegel or Nietzsche? or, maybe none of them? or perhaps all a little bit? let us see to what extent these philosophers have been influential in the modern approach of Taylor.

Taylor's remarkable work is interpreted as being too strongly committed to catholic personalism and not sufficiently familiar with the protestant theological tradition.

      The point of departure of this review essay on Charles Taylor's "A secular age" is that Taylor adds a new meaning to the already numerous meanings of the concept of "secularization". his main interest is in the rise of what he calls "the secular option" and in the repercussions the availability of this option has for believers and nonbelievers. while his monumental study offers an immensely rich and rewarding material for the understanding of these processes, two major weaknesses are identified here. (1) by taking medieval christianity -- and not a completely preaxial civilization -- as the prototype of an "enchanted" world, Taylor is in danger of interpreting the constant efforts at reform as a linear vector leading to modernity. this does not do justice to the contingency of these processes. (2) Taylor seems to overestimate the quantitative dimension of what he calls the post-durkheimian forms of religious life, but his understanding of the true nature of the church as a quintessentially network society is very important. in general, in some parts Taylor's masterful history of ideas has to be extended into a more sociologically oriented explanation of secularization processes.

      Most critics of species egalitarianism point to its counterintuitive implications in particular cases. but this argumentative strategy is vulnerable to the response that our intuitions should give way in the face of arguments showing that species egalitarianism is required by our deepest, most fundamental moral principles. in this article, I develop an argument against deontological versions of species egalitarianism on its own terms. appealing to the fundamental moral ideal of proportionality, I show that deontological species egalitarianism is morally objectionable as a matter of principle: It is committed to treating two individuals who are extraordinarily similar in morally relevant respects drastically differently. I then illustrate how an inegalitarian account of moral standing might be incorporated into traditional moral theories in ways that make them far more promising as theories of our obligations to the nonhuman world.

      In contemporary culture, the ideal of authenticity is respected even by the children of modernity who have grown narcissistic and relativistic. Charles Taylor recognizes self-transcendent, objective values implicit in this ideal. he identifies aristotelian and scientistic ‘knockers', as well as postmodern ‘boosters', of modern western liberal culture. this essay brings together what is true and attractive about 'authenticity' for boosters with the sources of the knockers' own convictions. Aristotle's notions that art can complete nature (in 'physics') and that the self is actualized in its products (in 'nicomachean ethics') confirm an artistic understanding of self-creation and self-recognition. tacit knowing in scientific understanding and the notion of emergence in nature also confirm an experience of appropriateness and beauty in the acknowledgement of a new truth. conservative, liberal scientific, and postmodern strands of modern culture thus find common ground and a basis for dialogue in the ethics and aesthetics of authentic knowing.

      My aim in this article is threefold. I seek to contextualize the question of religion in Charles Taylor's recent work. I blend this task, however, with a need to confront Taylor's theory of secularism as fending off marcel Gauchet's incisive post-weberian reading of christianity as producing an "exit from religion". finally, I examine Taylor's perspectivist history and theory of secularism. ultimately, I argue that Taylor's perspectivism forsakes a conception of religion as subjective reason for a subjectivism that embraces order and institutional power in the name of benevolence. by reinforcing his personal faith in catholicism, Taylor inevitably weakens his otherwise solid and important claim to participate in the transformational unfolding of christian moral philosophy into a bona fide public philosophy with universalist ambitions.

      In "sources of the self" (1989), C. Taylor explains the human identity as something that we cannot construct in a solipsistic way. in "the malaise of modernity" (1991), he describes the authenticity as a freedom that we cannot reduce to self-determined freedom. we should take account of the "horizons of meaning" and of its "dialogic" component. F. botturi, in "L'ontologia dialettica della libertà" (2003), makes a theoretical exercise and tries to articulate dialectically the different dimensions of the freedom: "autodeterminazione", "autorealizzazione" and "relazione". in this article, we want to cooperate in the theoretical articulation of the "authenticity" understood as "dialectic" and "plural freedom". we also want to understand what was Taylor talking about when he made a call for the "lotta continua", in the chapter VII of "the malaise of modernity".

M. anscombe puts it, not exclusively "private and interior" act-descriptions that agents alone determine. rather, I argue that the true intention of an action is frequently constrained, and sometimes even determined, by the intersubjective and retrospective view of an action. I begin by offering an interpretation of hegel's account of intention in 'the philosophy of right' -- an interpretation that fits well with work by Charles Taylor and michael quante, but not with a recent paper by arto laitinen. next, I offer examples that support the view -- consistent with my reading of hegel -- that sometimes the intersubjective and retrospective account of an action trumps the agent's prior subjective act-description. finally, I suggest the hegelian view I sketch might be taken as a kind of externalism about intentions, on the order of externalism about epistemic justification.

      The question of the meaning and meaningfulness of life is neglected by philosophers today. meaning is implicitly assumed to be associated with individual choices and preferences. this article argues that meaningfulness works in another way as well, when something provokes meaningfulness. one of the consequences of this vision is that there may well be implicit "standards" for meaning. certain benchmarks for meaning -- references concerned with our "being-in-the-world" -- have not been explored fully enough. another point that has been neglected in the recent discussion on meaningfulness is the very structure of being that is appealed to. this is the key to the experience of a deeper kind of meaningfulness.

      Meaningfulness is generally considered essential to human life. what meaningfulness implies, however, is difficult to delineate. in this paper, we focus on the philosophy of Charles Taylor and his account of hermeneutics. we discern important components of meaningfulness: Situatedness, orientatedness and articulacy are necessary to understand the world as horizontal rather than flattened. meaningfulness is also related to our capacity to take a step back and look at our lives from a distance.

      In this paper I develop a social conception of integrity while still holding onto the original meaning of the term. to that end I build mainly on the works of cheshire calhoun, whose view of integrity, developed over a decade ago, I consider to be one of the best; Charles Taylor, who has an insightful understanding of the self, which helps provide a richer conception of integrity than I believe calhoun developed, and lawrence langer, who gives an instructive critique of Taylor, which I use to provide the foundation for an integrity richly grounded in community. finally, I discuss how community can contribute to or diminish one's integrity and how it can help restore one's integrity if it has been diminished or lost.

      Through the lens of postcolonial feminism, this paper explores the challenge of providing culturally safe nursing care in the context of the post-9/11 in Canadian healthcare settings. A critical appraisal of the literature demonstrates that postcolonial feminism, despite some limitations, remains a valuable theoretical perspective to apply in cultural nursing research and develop culturally safe nursing practice. postcolonial feminism offers the analytical lens to understand how health, social and cultural context, race and gender intersect to impact on non-western populations' health. however, an uncritical application of postcolonial feminism may not serve racialized men's and women's interests because of its essentialist risk. postcolonial feminism must expand its epistemological assumptions to integrate Taylor's concept of identity and recognition and bakhtin's concepts of dialogism and unfinalizability to explore non-western populations' health issues and the context of nursing practice. this would strengthen the theoretical adequacy of postcolonial feminist approaches in unveiling the process of racialization that arises from the conflation of multiculturalism, sexism, and religious fundamentalism in western healthcare settings.

      Over the last few decades, many philosophers and others theorists have argued that narrative has a central role to play in our thinking about personal identity and ethics. recently, something of a backlash against these narrative theories seems to have developed, exemplified in work by galen strawson, peter lamarque and john christman. this paper responds to some of these criticisms and in so doing defends an approach to personal identity and ethics (based mainly on work by alasdair MacIntyre and Charles Taylor) in which narrative plays a central, though not a foundational, role.

      A thesis held by john searle, hubert dreyfus and Charles Taylor is that there is a kind of "understanding" or "knowledge" that differs from ordinary knowledge in being by nature nonrepresentational or nonconceptual and rather a kind of "know-how." the aim of this article is to examine the argument in support of their common thesis (which I call the "regress argument") and their claim that it was endorsed, at least implicitly, by wittgenstein in the 'philosophical investigations'. this examination shows that the argument is not convincing and that wittgenstein would have rejected it.

      The contemporary theories on the problems of identity and recognition have lead to the rebirth of the interest on the philosophy of hegel. those theories target the question of identity taken as a notion that has cultural, historical and religious references. those reflections, grounded on the idea that the problem of recognition plays a determining role in social integration as well as in the processes of self-realization, began to constitute the basic reference points of the considerations on social togetherness and justice. in this sense, multiculturalist and communitarian theories contain a return into the hegelian origins of the problem of recognition. we will discuss the ideas of Charles Taylor who loomed large on the late 20th century by developing the multiculturalist approach. in our discussion, which will revolve around the thinker's reception of hegel, we will evaluate the extent to which hegel's political philosophy opens us new horizons in making sense of contemporary societies.

    • ———. "Meaning and Porous being." Thesis Eleven 99, no. 1 (November 01, 2009): 7-26.
      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.
    • Smith, Nicholas H. and Arto Laitinen. "Taylor on Solidarity." Thesis Eleven 99, no. 1 (November 01, 2009): 48-70.
      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.

      The article discusses contemporary debates about the relation between liberal society and religious-based views of man and social organisation. it draws in particular on the conceptions of Jürgen Habermas and Charles Taylor, which deal with contemporary conflicts about the place of religion in the public space. Habermas's conception considers the ideal state to be one of a maximally open, but still explicitly secular, space, in which there may, however, exist religious inspiration. Taylor criticises the viability of such a model from the point of view of equality -- in the background of his critique there is a different understanding of secularity, which, in his view, cannot play the role of a neutral arbiter because it is too tied up with certain social groups.

      Charles Taylor and michel foucault offer two very different descriptions and analyses of modern identities. while it can be argued that Taylor and foucault are thematizing two very different aspects of identity -- Taylor is focusing on first-person, subjective, affirmed identity, and foucault is focusing on third-person, or ascribed, category identity -- in practice, these two are very much intertwined. I argue that attention to identities of race, gender, class and sexual orientation demands that we combine a foucauldian power analysis with a Taylorian understanding of authenticity. taking nancy fraser's and linda gordon's example of the 'single black mother on welfare' as the 'icon of dependency' in america and Charles Taylor's example of the 'householder' who understands himself in relation to an ideal of independence, I show that neither individual can develop either self-knowledge or freedom without engaging in a quest for authenticity that involves both analysis of relations of power and identification with resistant identities. this requires moving beyond both Taylor and foucault to an understanding of identity in terms of critical relations with defining communities.

      This article offers a critical analysis of Charles Taylor's "comparison, history, truth". I suggest that for all its emphasis on conversation, Taylor's depiction of the comparativist's enterprise is ultimately one-sided, depicting those who are interpreted as hermeneutic patients rather than hermeneutic agents. I raise some problems with the language of distortion employed throughout the essay. I then identify a number of ways in which Taylor's thought on cross-cultural understanding dovetails with that of anthony Kwame Appiah in his recent book 'cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a world of strangers', I conclude, however, that Taylor at least addresses the question of how western comparativists, who are supposed to proceed from some belief the equal validity of all cultures, engage cultures that do not share this belief. this issue is crucial for, but neglected by, Appiah.

      In this paper, the author will analyze and evaluate Charles Taylor's hermeneutical approach. it will specifically highlight the contributions of said approach to try and avoid ethnocentrism. inasmuch as Taylor is guided by a comparative perspective, he finds an alternative to postmodern philosophical theories regarding the incommensurability of knowledge, as well as the positivistic approach of logical empirism. finally, the author studies and clears up critiques about Taylor's possibly ending up as a eurocentric thinker (dussel's critique). according to samuel arriarán, no such euro centrism is to be found in Taylor, since he not only acknowledges the plurality of non-western modernity (albeit not in a sufficient manner), he also considers the need to incorporate social practices where the common good is established, for example, a sense of justice, equality, or self-governance. these goods cannot be forgotten or underestimated in latin america, under the argument that they all respond to other types of modernity, such as the french or the anglo-american.

      In his 1913/1916 publication entitled 'formalism in ethics and non-formal ethics of values' max scheler develops the issue of person and value. in 'ordo amoris' (1916) he presents the missing link in the relation between person and value, and in 'ressentiment' (1912) he considers the relation in its inverted form. these three works constitute a whole that stresses the functional existence of values and its constitutive role for human identity in its individual and social dimensions. in 'sources of the self: The making of the modern identity' (1989), Charles Taylor, going back to the sources of the self, undertakes scheler's concept of the constitution of identity by values in its individual and social dimensions, giving them new life in the form of values as qualitative differences and their best account articulation. Taylor completes his analysis of values as qualitative differences with hermeneutical encouragement for seeking their sources in a quite theoretical way. scheler sees the vehicle of values and moral growth in exemplars of the person, which is an another way of thinking about value -- not in the terms of an eidos, but in the terms of real persons and their nonformal ethics. this paper considers the place of values in this nonformal method.

      The respect for nature is one of the concepts that guide the environment-related action of UNESCO, UNEP and member states. the reflection generated by the new york-based philosopher paul Taylor provides an understanding of this concept as well as its ties with the level of biogeospherical existence. this comprehension, we contend here, is incomplete. for it to be complete and wholistic, the comprehension of the concept should be sustained by its ties with both the biogeospherical and the anthropological levels of existence. john dewey's pragmatism appears as the best trend of thought when it comes to getting an ally for this undertaking.

      This essay critically explores the epistemological assumptions underlying the prevalent paradigm of sociopolitical analysis, and points out its weakness in coming to grips with the multicivilizational cosmos of human self-understanding which makes up the historico-political world. it argues that a genuine hermeneutical science is needed in order to restate the meaningful pattern of human self-interpretation across cultures and civilizations in its historical depth and global reach. it takes as its starting point the rise of the great civilizations in the axial times and their respective visions of order which still shape modernity. these postaxial visions, various as they were in appearance and content, merged with political power to provide the meaning-creating symbolic forms of societal self-understanding, thus providing society with a logic of order. this essay defines the common ground of the intercivilizational modality of human existence in history and society as the proper subject of comparative political theorizing, insofar as it intends to bring to our attention the essence of the political in all of its historical modalities.

Secondly, Laitinen defends and develops in various ways Taylor's value realism. Finally, the book criticizes Taylor's view.

      Recent work in the business ethics field has called attention to the promise inherent in the concept of authenticity for enriching the ways we think about core issues at the intersection of management ethics and practice, like moral character, ethical choices, leadership, and corporate social responsibility (driver 2006; jackson 2005; ladkin 2006). in this paper, I aim to extend these contributions by focusing on authenticity in relation to a set of organizational processes related to strategy making; most specifically an organization's strategic intent, arguing that these provide an ideal venue for particularising this exploration, as they represent the key processes through which an organization defines the self it aspires to be. in order to do this, I examine specifically what a shift from "business as usual" to the search for the creation of a more authentic corporate self might look like in practice, contending that such a shift offers the possibility for improving both the moral good and the business outcomes of an institution simultaneously. I conclude with assessment of the risks inherent in undertaking such a search for more authentic strategic intention in business organizations today.

      There has been a resurgence of interest in hegel's thought by anglo-american philosophers in the last 25 years. that expansion of interest was initiated with the publication of Charles Taylor's hegel (1975). that work stills stands as one of the important branches of hegel interpretation. however, the dominance of the strongly metaphysical interpretation of hegel, which dominated the understanding of hegel until the 1980s, and of which Taylor's work represents the culmination, has now, at least among the major interpreters of hegel, given way to what has come to be known as the nonmetaphysical reading of hegel. this article charts the emergence and development of the nonmetaphysical hegel, which takes his thought to be a continuation of the kantian project of critically examining the presuppositions of any normative claim. this article provides an overview of the latest developments in hegel research, primarily focusing on the english-language literature. recent research has placed hegel's concerns at the centre of contemporary debates in analytic philosophy, particularly concerning the status of norms, the 'space of reasons' and the 'myth of the given'. this research has in turn been influential on the two most important figures in english-language hegel scholarship (robert pippin and terry pinkard). the article will position this new wave of hegel scholarship and its influence in relation to the metaphysical interpretation of hegel and will also provide a brief overview of hegel's reception in french poststructuralism, which has largely accepted and promoted a view of hegel as a metaphysician.

      The question of identity is surely not a new one. however, the rise of the liberal-communitarian debate as a consequence of the publication of 'A theory of justice' gave it a real acuity. indeed, liberals, with their so-called procedural vision of identity, conflict with communitarians and their understanding of the person as genuinely embedded in a set of values she couldn't repudiate without disappearing herself. this study works on an adjustment of this manichean setting of the problem, by establishing a dialogue between three philosophers: Taylor and walzer, as members of the communitarian team, and Rawls, as the liberal opponent; this, however, won't prevent us from working on authors who are not directly involved in this debate (tamir). the main idea of this paper is that a particular liberalism is able to propose a vision of identity which takes seriously the most communitarian criticisms, so that the traditional gap between the two doctrines becomes deeply meaningless.

      The work of Charles Taylor takes place during the debate between liberals and communitarians in the eighties, which provokes the revision of liberal principles. the communitarians, such as Taylor, sandel, walzer, MacIntyre, argued against liberal thinkers who have defended individualism instead of social and communitarian's values. in the opinion of communitarians, liberals destroy the values of the community as a consequence of their individualism and "atomism". in this essay, I will analyse Taylor's point of view, and his defence of the concept of multiculturalism that derives of his defence of the rights that different cultures have to affirm their cultural identity, which makes necessary that individuals take care of their community.

      This paper deals with the question why it is relevant for contemporary catholic healthcare organizations (HCOs) to articulate their catholic identity. this question is answered from three different perspectives: An organizational one, an ecclesiastical one, and a philosophical one referring to Charles Taylor. in the end we conclude that articulation enables to contribute to the primary objective of the medical-ethical teaching of the church: A healthcare practice in accordance with the dignity of human beings. second, by articulating their identity catholic HCOs can perform an exemplary role in contemporary pluralistic society on humanity and justice in healthcare.

      This presentation tends to research, clarify and interpret the role and the significance of the cogito in relationship with man's moral action and generally, with the theory of morality of the modern Canadian philosopher, theorist and thinker Charles Taylor. does reason indeed hold exclusive supremacy over man's actions and how does one explain and understand the crisis of the modern man's ethos in the light of reason, and try to find an adequate solution for the issue of a global morality crisis, which has taken over the entire civilization of our time? -- are only some among a number of similar questions that will be discussed in this paper.

      "Pluralism" is a broad term applied to any doctrine which maintains that there are ultimately many ways of being of things. epistemological pluralism maintains that people are able to construct multiple cognitive concepts using diverse models (standards of measurement) and systems of thought (knowledge). cultural pluralism has two aspects: Descriptive and normative. Charles Taylor is a Canadian philosopher, an author of such works as: 'hegel','the sources of the self', 'the ethics of authenticity'. he considered a problem of individualism in cultural, social and religion contexts. Taylor looks for a basis for contemporary dialogue between philosophy of culture, philosophy of politics, ethics, and philosophy of religion. in the work 'multiculturalism and the politics of recognition' Taylor considered the problem of pluralism in the context of democratizing society and the controversy of how its public institutions should better recognize cultural identities. the idea of the dignity of all individuals is of fundamental importance. human life has a dialogical character. we become fully human capable of understanding ourselves and, hence, of defining our identity, through our acquisition of rich human languages of expression, including the languages of art, of gesture, of love, of religion and the like.

      Charles Taylor defines 'hypergoods' as the fundamental, architectonic goods that serve as the basis of our moral frameworks. he also believes that, in principle, we can use reason to reconcile the conflicts that hypergoods engender. this belief, however, relies upon a misidentification of hypergoods as goods rather than as works of art, an error which is itself a result of an overly adversarial conception of practical reason. for Taylor fails to distinguish enough between ethical conflicts and those relating to the religio-aesthetic domain. A proper identification of hypergoods as aesthetic, moreover, requires us to revise his accounts of ordinary life, of evil and of the controversy over university curricula.

      En el presente artículo se lleva a cabo una revisión crítica de la propuesta central del pensamiento de Charles Taylor con respecto a los espacios sociales multiculturales, es decir, sobre la propuesta de una reconstrucción hermenéutica de la identidad moderna que hemos heredado. Se proponen como tema de reflexión las posibles, y deseables, consecuencias éticas y jurídico-políticas de tal reconstrucción en lo que atañe a nuevas relaciones interculturales fincadas en una comprensión simbólica de talante interpretativo y autocrítico. Para ello, se revisan sintéticamente los principales momentos de la tesis tayloriana, presente en su libro Sources ofthe Self: The Making of Modern Identity, así como en otros de sus textos centrales, y se evalúa todo ello para defender una hipótesis propia, la consistente en sostener que estamos en condiciones de un cambio cultural a gran escala en nuestro mundo multicultural. /// 

      This is a critical revision of the central argument in the thought of Charles Taylor regarding multicultural social spaces, L e. the need of ahermeneutical reconstruction of the modern identity inherited by the contemporary world. The author sets out to weigh the possible and desirable ethical and legal-political consequences of such a reconstruction concerning new intercultural relations, from a symbolic understanding in an interpretive and self-critical vein. In so doing, a synthetic review of the highlights of Taylor's thesis in Sources of the Self: The Making of Modern Identity and other of his central texts is carried out, and then from an evaluation of this material a case is made for the hypothesis of this paper, namely, that the conditions for a large scale cultural change in our multicultural world have been reached.

      Over the last 30 years, the self-determination efforts and objectives of indigenous peoples in Canada have increasingly been cast in the language of 'recognition'. in this paper, I employ frantz fanon's critique of hegel's master-slave dialectic to challenge the now hegemonic assumption that the structure of domination that frames indigenous-state relations in Canada can be undermined via a liberal politics of recognition. against this assumption, I argue that instead of ushering in an era of peaceful coexistence grounded on the hegelian ideal of 'reciprocity', the contemporary politics of recognition promises to reproduce the very configurations of colonial power that indigenous demands for recognition have historically sought to transcend.

    • Curtis, William M. "Liberals and Pluralists: Charles Taylor Vs John Gray." Contemporary Political Theory 6, no. 1 (Feb., 2007): 86-107.
      Charles Taylor and john gray offer competing liberal responses to the contemporary challenge of pluralism. gray's morally minimal ''modus vivendi' liberalism' aims at peaceful coexistence between plural ways of life. in contrast, Taylor's 'hermeneutic liberalism' is based on dialogical engagement with difference and holds out the possibility that incompatible values and traditions can be reconciled without oppression or distortion. although Taylor's theory is superior to gray's because it recognizes that dialogue is crucial for respecting pluralism, both theories fail to fully articulate the ethical ideal of citizenship that they imply. citizens who are able to dialogically engage with pluralism must be cultivated through liberal education to possess certain ethical traits, and this requirement inevitably limits the range of pluralism liberal societies can accommodate. the theoretical overemphasis on pluralism in recent liberal theory serves to obscure this point.

      This paper confronts the positions of Charles Taylor and isaiah berlin regarding the issue of freedom in its positive and negative senses. an analysis of both positions show the differences between them regarding liberalism and democracy. Taylor's critics to berlin are clear examples of a more general goal of linking kantian moral autonomy and romantic expressivism, as a way of moving beyond the isolated subject proposed by initial modernism. according to him, positive freedom is compatible with republicanism and democracy, since it is linked to the self-determination of citizens. even though Taylor's contributions are mentioned, a final assessment will take into account the risks of his view.

      This essay is divided in two main parts. the first one will be a short description of the deficiencies found in moral reflection which seem to lead the discussion towards the concept of recognition. Charles Taylor and axel honneth, who are one of the main characters in these debates, give very good reasons to turn the argument towards the subject of recognition, but they do not seem to agree either in its definition, or in the right way to recover the hegelian thesis, nor even in the way to approach the relationship between autonomy and recognition. the second part will introduce, therefore, the proper hegelian concept, with the intention of emphasizing the essential link -- not the rupture -- between the notion of recognition and the conceptual model of free will or spirit.

      The paper aims at giving a sketch of the fundamental dilemma of modern culture with a look at Charles Taylor's philosophy: Modern age has two conflicting foundations, on the one hand rationalism, and on the other hand romanticism. rehabilitating a neoromantical order of goods and opening up sources of the self, Taylor tries to overcome the punctual self of rationalism. this effort has its own model: Already hegel tried to find a solution for this epoch-making dilemma. we cannot accept hegel's mediation between rationalism and romanticism today, but the dilemma it was meant to solve remains. against the background of Taylor's genealogical studies and with a special look at isaiah berlin and william james I try to demonstrate that Taylor gives a copy of hegel's failure to show: Hegel's dilemma still is our dilemma.

      Imaginary is, in Taylor's thought, a category of understanding social praxis and the reasons people give to make sense of these practices. the ultimate reason is the hypergood, which influences the strong decisions. those strong evaluations outline the moral framework from which people address their own lives and the lives of others. we only recognize our cultural framework as an 'imaginary' -- challenging the supposition it is something 'objective' -- when others make their apparition in our lives. after the encounter nobody remains the same; something in our imaginary has changed. the outcome of this process is the 'best account' we have to make sense of our life. if we accept the category of 'imaginary' and the process of 'best account' as accurate enough to address latin american reality, the problem we have to solve is how we can find out a latin american social imaginary.

      This paper examines an account of authenticity offered by karl jaspers against an ideal of authenticity attributed to johann herder in an effort to find out which, if either, can be of service to a plausible theory of autonomous agency. I argue that the herderian ideal informs the view of authenticity that has come to dominate current discussion, but that it has less to do with autonomy than we think. the situations of david kaczynski, younger brother of unabomber ted kaczynski, and that of the acclaimed german novelist günter grass, are examined as case studies.
    • Palovicová, Zuzana. "Normative Character of the Notion of Recognition." Filozofia 62, no. 8 (2007): 658-667. In Slovak.
      The request of recognition is nowadays being raised under strongly varying conditions, as in the name of minorities, collective identities or within feminism. still growing emphasis on the need of recognition is based on the assumption of certain links existing between recognition and identity, where the identity is used to specify human self-understanding. the first part of the study tries to follow the argumentation in support of the social and cultural recognition theory. while interpreting this theory, the author focuses on the works of contemporary influential recognition theory philosophers, namely ch. Taylor and A. honneth. the second part of the study explores the relationship between the recognition of collective identities and the ideal of individual autonomy.

      Most modern liberal versions of the state depend on a philosophically ambitious theory about the nature of human individuality and its normatively relevant implications. it is often assumed that contrasting theories about the ultimacy of inter-subjective relations and the derivative or secondary status of individuality are potentially if not actually illiberal, and hegel's putative “organic” theory of the state is often cited as an example. A major arena for such disputes has been the claim by such neo-hegelians as Charles Taylor and axel honneth that the key liberal notion of the “free and rational individual” depends for its possibility on a social condition of great political relevance: “mutual recognition.” in the following, I return to the sources of this dispute (a dispute sometimes called postmodern “identity” politics) in hegel's original arguments about “dependence” and “independence,” and investigate what according to hegel is the exact nature of the human dependence at issue and what might count as the successful satisfaction of this condition of dependence. it is, I argue, much easier to see what hegel's answer is to the former question than to the latter.

      In this article, I argue that in the study of cultural heritage and tourism it is important to consider historicity, identity, and the Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor's concept of the "politics of recognition". I propose that we are currently living in a time when efforts are being made to conserve and protect the past. the struggle to protect or conserve one or another element of the heritage of a nation or other social group implicates the affirmation of people's identities, while at the same time recognizing the importance of dialogue which is a fundamental aspect of the 'recognition' of 'some' by 'others'.

      This essay argues that william cavanaugh's 'theopolitical imagination' uncovers some of the possibilities latent within the catholic imagination. while his critique of modernity is often persuasive, this essay questions whether cavanaugh's assessment of modernity can be complemented by a more differentiated approach. what Charles Taylor provides is both a bolstering of cavanaugh's thesis about the power of the imagination and an alternative: That there is a way of thinking about the relationship between the church and modernity other than in dialectical terms -- namely a 'ricci reading' of modernity.

      This paper argues that the views of Charles Taylor on justice in income and wealth distribution are fallacious, especially in regard to issues such as private property rights, justice, human rights, and theft. as to this last point, Taylor maintains it is possible, under certain circumstances, to "legitimately steal." we regard this as a philosophical howler of the first order. we also demur from his contention that equity and equality can be used as synonyms.

      Postpositivists have lately joined post-husserlians in arguing that the deepest problem with descartes's legacy is that it fosters the objectivist illusion that philosophers might actually come to think "from nowhere," or at least that they can self-consciously choose whatever presuppositions they do accept. yet this argument is easier to express than to incorporate into one's own thinking. this article is concerned with such compromised opposition -- that is, with critics who reject, in ahistorical terms and from an ahistorical standpoint, an ahistorical conception of philosophy. it focuses on two figures from the empiricist-positivist side of the cartesian legacy, Rorty and Taylor, but their story is in important ways typical. though their criticisms are certainly more radical and considerably more successful than those of many of their analytic colleagues, each retains in his own thinking more of the ahistorical or standpointless ideal than he realizes.

      Since its publication in 1989, Charles Taylor's 'sources of the self' has commanded much attention and generated considerable controversy. this chapter provides an overview of the book by outlining what Taylor was attempting to do in 'sources'; what conception of the self it adduces; what is distinctive about the modern self; what the sources of the modern self are and how these are supposed to 'source' the self. 'sources of the self' is depicted here as a genealogy of morality without a hermeneutic of suspicion. in its richness and complexity, 'sources' mirrors the richness and complexity of the modern identity.

      Charles Taylor's work has recently taken a religious turn, with Taylor becoming more explicit about his own religious faith and its influence on his thinking. ian fraser offers a systematic, critical exploration of the nature of Taylor's catholicism as it appears in his writings. this reply to fraser raises doubts about some of fraser's particular arguments and conclusions, and aims to foster a clearer understanding of Taylor's religious beliefs. it poses questions for fraser about (i) what Taylor is setting out to do in 'A catholic modernity?'; (ii) why he invokes the figure of matteo ricci; (iii) whether he believes that acts of practical benevolence are impossible without a religious foundation; and (iv) whether his religiously-inspired pluralism suffers an inherent contradiction.

      David rodin has recently put forward a compelling but disturbing argument to the effect that the traditional justification in just-war theory of a state's right to self-defence (what rodin calls national-defence) fails. he concludes that the only way to justify forceful responses to aggression against states by other states or nonstate groups is by viewing the right to do so as falling under a form of law-enforcement, which in turn requires the existence of some overarching universal state. in this paper I argue that there exists a possible justification for national-defence that rodin has overlooked due to an underlying commitment to what Charles Taylor calls 'the primacy of rights thesis'. my claim is that a particular family of views that see human identity as being crucially bound up with society offers the resources to avoid the pitfalls that rodin points out befall other attempts to justify national-defence.

      Der beitrag kontrastiert die beiden freiheitsbegriffe einer "negativen" und "positiven freiheit", hinter denen die divergierenden positionen des liberalismus und kommunitarismus stehen. isaiah berlins konzept der "negativen freiheit" entpuppt sich insofern als irrtum, als freiheit nur in einem triadischen modell hinreichend bestimmt werden kann: Weder als rein negative abwesenheit von sozial externen freiheitsschranken ("handlungsfreiheit") noch als möglichst breites spektrum an beliebigen handlungsoptionen ("willkürfreiheit"). wie Charles Taylors gegenmodell aufweist, setzt freiheit positiv gefasst als "freiheit wozu" vielmehr höherstufige wünche oder ziele voraus. diese gründen letztlich in einem normativen selbstentwurf, der nur in interaktion mit der sozialen Außenwelt stabilisiert werden kann.

      Charles Taylor's view of the self is closely connected with his analysis of moral life and it constitutes some kind of reaction directed against the limitations and inconsistencies he perceives in the philosophical positions taken by cultural movements such as liberalism and communitarism. in contrast with those theories, Taylor does not hesitate to recognize the value of a tradition of hermeneutics that searches for meaning and proper understanding of existence. therefore, any relevant discourse of the self must take into account the way individuals experience their moral lives and the horizons of meaning held within cultures which would support them. such a moral framework might contribute, in one form or another, not only to epistemological understanding but also to the recognition of values that happen to be articulated, shared, structured and fused.

Taylor's critics overlook the liberal implications of his ethic and also do not recognize his commitment to the plural diversity in modern societies. Taylor's communitarianism (postliberalism in his mind) aims to create trust, openness and democratic accountability. (edited).

      The basic thesis of this essay is that confession -- defined as acts of truth-telling about that which one most fears to speak -- affects the landscape of one's emotions and desires. the kind of effect confession will have on emotions and desires is determined, in part, by the identity of the listener. thus, the listener is not neutral in such acts of confession. I explore this relationship between confession and desire through an analysis of the sacrament of confession and in conversation with dionysius the areopagite, maximus the confessor, Charles Taylor, and martha Nussbaum. I suggest an alternative understanding of the sacrament of confession as an event whose purpose is to increase one's desire for God. I argue that Taylor and Nussbaum give insufficient attention to how desire affects interpretation and to how the particular iconic role of the listener affects how confession affects emotions and desires.

I provide a weak defense of Taylor against both connolly and many of Taylor's liberal secular foes. despite its noted shortcomings that connolly can help to address, Taylor's model does provide a more adequate basis for thinking through a public morality appropriate to the times because it takes seriously the hold certain values have on nonsecular individuals. and thus is very much attuned to the realities of ethical deliberation in early 21st-century western democracies.

      Multiculturalism in the sense of the presence of groups in democratic societies which do not -- like traditionalistic islam -- share a genuine secular understanding of the state poses significant problems regarding both the understanding of citizenship and the politics of recognition of cultural difference. divergent approaches by Charles Taylor, Jürgen Habermas and will kymlicka to this question are presented. in spite of disagreements on important issues, these authors manifest a consensus on two points: (1) that pure proceduralism without any shared understanding of basic values is not sufficient and (2) that the self-understanding of citizenship in a liberal constitutional democracy is not compatible with all cultural traditions. A culturally diversified understanding of citizenship in one and the same democratic society, so the paper concludes, is impossible. respect for cultural diversity presupposes assimilation of culturally different groups to the constitutional essentials of modern occidental democracies, based on secularity, pluralism and the recognition of political autonomy of citizens.

      Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor has written widely on human agency and its connections to the good life, and has formulated a sophisticated theory of the components of self-identity. however, this paper argues that Taylor's theory of the self too narrowly circumscribes who can be said to be an agent through an over- emphasis on language and rational articulacy, a vision of agents as necessarily moral beings, and an insistence that agency is intrinsically teleological. modifications are needed to his account, to provide a broader scope for understanding contemporary agents, and what for them would constitute a life of flourishing.

      Charles Taylor is quite rightly ranked as one of the leading philosophers writing in the world today. as such, his recent endorsement of catholicism as his preferred vision for the good life warrants careful attention. to this end, I examine the core aspects of his catholicism that centre on four main themes: Catholicism as difference, the need for transcendence, the necessity for acts of 'unconditional love', and his support for matteo ricci's jesuit mission of the 16th century as a model to be followed for catholics today. I argue that Taylor has severe weaknesses in all these themes, which cast great doubts on the viability of his catholic vision for offering an orientation towards the good.
    • Fredriksen, Ståle. "Limits to Doubt." Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics: Philosophy of Medical Research and Practice 26, no. 5 (2005): 379-395.
      Supported by ian hacking's concept of "intervention," and Charles Taylor's concept of "intentionality," this article argues that doubting is acting, and that doubting is therefore subject to the same demands of responsibility as any other action. the argument is developed by using medical practice as a test-case. the central suggestion is that the demand of acting responsibly limits doubt in medicine. the article focuses on two such limitations to doubt. firstly, the article argues that it is irresponsible to doubt that our actions can harm other people. secondly, the article argues that it is irresponsible not to strive for coherence between our utterances of doubt and our other actions. in a larger context this article also argues that medicine can enrich our epistemology, because medical knowledge displays important traits of knowledge that are downplayed in traditional epistemology derived from mathematics and physics. in particular, medicine makes it possible to get the relation between ethics and epistemology into sharper focus. the endpoint in medical epistemology is "responsible action."

      This paper presents the Charles Taylor's proposal of intercultural hermeneutic. from the "principle of best account" we explain the possibility of an applied hermeneutic to the human action and behavior. our starting point is to include the own terms of the agents in this explanation. all this takes us into the critic of the naturalist attitude and into the survey of a view that will not eliminate our own comprehension of the agents. we hit on the conditions of our hermeneutic and we wonder if accepting the agents terms, will lead us into the absolute relativism, or transforming these exactly terms in incorrigible. at this point we offer the Taylor's hermeneutic with his extraordinary transformer potential and the possibility of investing a language gravitating between both positions, in other words, a language that allows the fusion of horizons. we conclude by explaining in what consists this language of contrast and paying attention in the critical nerve which the understanding implies.

I am going to use Taylor's proposal because it is relatively known. so that I will reconstruct -- in my own way -- the context where Taylor's discussion is developed; then I will focus on an aspect of his strategy and, finally, I will discuss, freely and explicitly, the topic of recognition in general.

      Taking as an unavoidable need the design of an substantive or articulated ethic that is committed to the outrage against the concrete conditions of the different cultural contexts in which a decision has to be taken. in this article, we will explore the possibilities of its construction in Charles Taylor's work regarding hermeneutics, making emphasis especially on the phronetic character that such ethics have as its condition of possibility.

      Jonathan marks offers a new interpretation of the philosopher's thought and its place in the contemporary debate between liberals and communitarians. against prevailing views, marks argues that rousseau's thought revolves around the natural perfection of a naturally disharmonious being. at the foundation of rousseau's thought marks finds a natural teleology that takes account of and seeks to harmonize conflicting ends. the rousseau who emerges from this interpretation is a radical critic of liberalism who is nonetheless more cautious about protecting individual freedom than his milder communitarian successors.

      In this paper the moral responsibility of a healthcare organization (HCO) is conceived as an inextricable aspect of the identity of the HCO. we attempt to show that by exploring this relation a more profound insight in moral responsibility can be gained. referring to Charles Taylor we explore the meaning of the concept of identity. it consists of three interdependent dimensions: A moral, a dialogical, and a narrative one. in section two we develop some additional arguments to apply his concept of personal identity to organizations. the final section works out the relationship of three dimensions of identity to some actual issues in contemporary HCOs: The tension between care and justice, the importance of dialogues about the diversity of goods, and the relevance of becoming familiar with the life-story of the HCO.

      Recent publications by Charles Taylor ('varieties of religion today, modern social imaginaries') have considered the meaning of religion in modern secularized society, especially with regard to the construction of political identities. this critical study points to an inconsistency in Taylor's approach to religion. the paper argues that a political philosophy should be mindful of the consequences of Taylor's remarks in the field of the philosophy of religion. in order to do this, use is made of carl schmitt's notion of 'political theology' and his thesis concerning the 'anti-roman affect" in the political history of the west. any political philosophy that is prepared to consider the relations between 'politics' and 'religion' should take into account the varieties of religion and their impact on politics.

      This essay examines various intellectual challenges posed by john Rawls's conception of an overlapping consensus, both in terms of his own approach and also that of Charles Taylor. two questions are entertained: (1) whether various criticisms of Rawls's view are indeed justified and (2) if they are, whether Taylor puts them to rest. though the latter question is answered somewhat in the negative, Taylor's version of overlapping consensus is interestingly different from that of Rawls in that Taylor introduces an important distinction between a tradition on the one hand and what Rawls terms a "comprehensive doctrine" on the other. the advantage of this distinction, among other things, is that it clarifies what is at stake in moving to any sort of overlapping consensus.

Rorty thinks that both realism and truth as correspondence are philosophical positions that are still in the modern epistemological tradition. Taylor thinks that escaping that same tradition involves realism and an ontological use of truth as correspondence. milbank synthesizes these differences by defending both nonrealism and truth as correspondence. this synthesis is found in his christology because truth is made by christ and truth is christ so we know the truth by participating in the body of christ called the church.

      This essay evaluates Charles Taylor's defence of a politics of recognition in light of his broader account of modern identity and the self. I argue that his call for a politics of recognition betrays what is most ethically promising in his own account of modern subjectivity--namely, its emphasis on and affirmation of inner multiplicity. the first part of the paper identifies the ways in which his account of the self affirms inner multiplicity. the second part of the paper outlines how a politics of recognition circumscribes this inner plurality by rendering core aspects of personal identity rigid and by promoting attitudes that inhibit attentiveness to multiplicity within the self.

      The dissolution of moral horizons, the eclipse of moral aims for an instrumental reason and the progressive loss of freedom are some of the conflicts of contemporary society according to the analysis by Charles Taylor in his book 'the ethics of authenticity'. hence, these problematic aspects are seen as a consequence of a rooted liberal individualism and require an alternative conception of human being, which would recognize and emphasize the role of the community in the configuration of its identity. Taylor argues for a hermeneutic conception of human sciences, emphasizing the dialogical structure that configures the identity of man and proposes a 'politics of recognition' as a basic key to understand the mechanisms of social integration.

      This paper examines the increasing trend by nursing scholars, such as patricia benner, to conceptualize ethics as a contextual and embodied 'way of knowing', embedded in nursing expertise. the intellectual origins of this development and its debt to neo-aristotelian thinkers, such as philosopher Charles Taylor, are discussed. it will be argued that rather than revealing a truth about ethical expertise, the emergence of the 'expert' nurse as a moral and ethical category is the result of the elaboration of neo-thomist discourses in the educational and professional shaping of nurses.

      The aim of this article is to compare the theories of isaiah berlin and Charles Taylor with regard to the topic of freedom. I will argue that berlin's famous positive-negative distinction still serves an important purpose by maintaining a crucial tension within the concept of liberty. this tension allows ethical pluralism to be taken seriously instead of being covered up by ideological rhetoric. berlin held that the implementation of positive liberty--defining the boundaries of true liberty--is always problematic. Taylor, however, tries to bypass the gap between negative and positive liberty by means of his concept of 'authenticity'. I will argue that this notion is a sound descriptive term for an individual's entrenchment in community, but that the normative appeal from authenticity amounts to a project of 'resourcing the self' which is ultimately rooted in an optimistic perspective on pluralism and multiculturalism. however, to the extent that there are indeed different communities with different values and different ways of being authentic, it is worthwhile to repeat the berlinian 'grundgedanke' that human beings should cope with the inexorable and irreducible tragedy in moral life.

      The paper examines the relationship between ethics and the principle of authenticity, focusing on two fundamental questions: What is it, what distorts today the ideal of authenticity and how to differentiate between morally responsible forms of self-determination and other ways of modern searching for authenticity? the author follows Taylor's conception of authenticity. on one hand Taylor is not willing simply to reject the diagnosis of the conservative critics of modernity. he shares their idea, that it was the modernity, which made the dynamic of ongoing social individualization and purpose-made rationalization possible. the consequence, however, is, among other things, a challenge to our moral certainties. on the other hand Taylor does not want to be an adherent of antimodernism. according to him the background of contemporary occurrences is also the ideal of authenticity, which could be attributed a moral role and which seems to break down the value relativism from inside.

      How does christianity, c.q., catholicism, relate to contemporary issues as selfhood, moral life and secularity? Taylor argues that the modern conception of 'selfhood' is in line with the biblical notion of the human being called to enter into dialogue with his/her fellow human beings and with a transcendent other; that our identity as moral agents depends on our recognition of a good which is never just our invention and that christianity inspired the secular belief that the self and the world could be actively reordered for the better.

      The paper presents a model according to which there are four interdependent as well as partially autonomous spheres or 'levels' of socially relevant self-interpretation that have to be taken into account equally in order to provide a sound basis for social and political criticism. thus, it is from the tensions and incoherences between (A) social ideas and doctrines, (B) social institutions and practices, (C) individual beliefs and convictions, and (D) body-practices and habits that social pathologies can be identified and possible solutions can be envisaged.

Taylor's assertion that such a language might play a central role in helping us to be more responsive to the claims of nature and the social world is critically examined. within the scope of the paper, the review of deleuzian (and deleuze and guattari's) thinking is selective and limited to some aspects of the problematics of language and communication. the paper concludes by presenting a brief summary of deleuze's ethics for the purpose of considering his philosophical method within the context of moral education.

I elaborate hefner's theology of the created cocreator to show where hefner contrasts with them and then contrast his ideas with those of two contemporary theologians who fit into the second paradigm, george lindbeck and mark C. Taylor.

      In the following essay, there will first be a critique of two contemporary philosophical concepts which investigate the possibility for religion today: Jacques derrida and Charles Taylor's reflections on religion. in a second step, wendel presents her own concept in discussion with friedrich schleiermacher's definition of religiosity as "gefühl schlechthinniger abhängigkeit": Religiosity is characterized as an immediate feeling that could be had, and as an existential from the individual. religion is defined as expression and form, "symbolic form" of religiosity in the dimensions of language and body. religion is always materially determined, but religiosity is a formal condition of possibility of the concrete arising from religions which develop in the self-consciousness. it is an immediate feeling of indebtedness to this absolute as a condition for the possibility of religion.

      Melissa lane offers one of the clearest accounts of the structural features of the central argument Charles Taylor puts forward in 'sources of the self'. despite this, however, she comes to incorrect conclusions regarding the strength of that argument. this paper shows that the reasons for this shortcoming in lane's analysis rest on some subtle misunderstandings of some of the concepts Taylor deploys, and on lane's insistence on treating the different parts of Taylor's strategy as discrete. it is concluded that a far stronger argument emerges once these problems are rectified.

      this article presents a response to melissa lane's reading of Charles Taylor's "sources of the self." when one understands Taylor's notion of morality in these terms, lane's dismissal of the effectiveness of the phenomenological argument in establishing the claim of morality is far less compelling. for in Taylor's terms even the will to power represents some discrimination of better and worse, for the will to power must be directed. furthermore, to claim that the phenomenologist's finding that one always do make moral judgements is explicable in terms of the projection of emotions, is to ignore the phenomenological force of Taylor's insight that the strong evaluations stand independent of their desires, inclinations and choices, and indeed, offer a standard by which to assess their desires.

      In the present article I present a reflection which is midway between hermeneutics and ethics, taking as a problematic kernel the possibility of establishing a rational action criteria originated from the substantivity of life forms in communities. taking as a prototype the ideas of Charles Taylor and other communitarians, I attempt to show that in the action guided according to ethical ends, there is always an undetachable unit of the interpretation element with the valuation element of the peculiar circumstance in which that act is given, and from which such unit abuses or constrains in the intercultural interpretations could be avoided, on the one hand, and toward the same cultural environment, on the other. I advocate thus, for an ethical-hermeneutical character originated by the action, from which norms and content follow according to every single situation.

      The author takes up a provocative question poised by Charles Taylor about the relationship between our commitments to a good such as neighbor love and the possibilities of achieving and sustaining social justice. Taylor's concern is not only that we make such a commitment but that we make it in such a way that we avoid its ability to lead us towards injustice rather than justice. after articulating conceptions of love, justice, and injustice, the author turns to charles dickens's treatment of love and injustice in 'bleak house', to explore more fully how love can lead to injustice, and also its potential role in promoting justice.

      Taylor's political proposal is based on a particular way of explaining human action. the modern ideal of authenticity is used to underline the role of responsibility in personal agency. aristotelian prudence or 'phronesis' is considered one of the best interpretations of practical reason for completing the ideal of authenticity because it includes the distinction among goods and their influence in everyone's life. the contemporary notion of 'horizon' is an aid for understanding the role of cultural frames and dialogical exchange in the construction of personal identity.

      Although ricoeur and Taylor are often grouped together, their conceptions of language, literature, and practical reason are very different. the first half of this essay focuses on ricoeur's theory of triple mimesis and narrative, showing how his attempt to synthesize kant, husserl, and structuralism results in a formalism that blocks out the ontological, hermeneutical, and historical dimensions of literature and practical reason. the second half of the essay develops Taylor's ontological conception of public imagination and illustrates the dynamics of this conception of language and interpretation by showing how literary works debate with each other over language, subjectivity, and reference. narrative does not just order; it argues.

      The purpose of this article is to strengthen the links between reasons of justice and historical reasons in order to justify the recognition of certain rights for cultural groups. I try to show that in the struggles to defend the preservation of some cultures it is not marginal, but rather essential, the fact that this defense arises from an exclusion history. considering some examples, in the first part of the paper I intend to integrate some of the features that, from Charles Taylor's point of view, constitute identity, to the stages that, according to luis villoro, are involved in the projection of a model of justice. in the second part, I recount some episodes of the U'was's recent process of territorial recuperation in columbia. the purpose of telling that story is to strengthen the relationship that, from luis villoro's point of view, exists between exclusion stories and the consolidation processes of justice.

      According to Charles Taylor secularization is not so much a process that has developed on neutral epistemic grounds, but rather on moral and spiritual grounds. one aspect of this process is the turn to 'personal religion' mediated by the reformation. this shift fits a broad cultural pattern that arose during modernity and that he refers to as the ethics of authenticity. this led not only to a rise in new kinds of religion and spirituality, but also in the number of people who are declaring themselves to be atheist or agnostic. in the interview, Taylor explains how this process can be interpreted in terms of a gradual shift from a hierarchical social imaginary, where God is present in the sacred, to a horizontal social imaginary in the form of a providential design. he also discusses how the backlash against multiculturalism might be related to the process of secularization.

      Fraser's general model does indeed represent an important advance over competing models of identity politics. however, it is not entirely clear how many of its advantages are the result of the status model, and how many are attributable to other theoretical components. my underlying hypothesis is that no adequate critical theory of recognition can be so objectivistic that it ignores the internal connections between struggles for expanded social relations of recognition and the development of individual identity. I develop some arguments in support of this hypothesis in this paper by showing that most of the clear advantages contained in fraser's critical social theory are not due to the adoption of a status-based model of recognition.

      The present clash between the assertion of one's identity and the aspiration to universality refers to social praxis rather than to doctrines or theories. ch. Taylor's criticism, from the perspective of hermeneutics, leads to that social atomism which has generated the modern notion of identity, and suggests an 'affiliation' of the individual through his teleological self-construction. from L. polo's point of view the hegelian roots of this proposal, which can be surpassed without denying or contradicting it through the notion of identity as referring to origin, are shown as 'filiation'. such a position demands the consideration of the individual as a person who anthropologically and ethically integrates identity and universality.

      This article relates the transcendental and pragmatic philosophy of R. W. emerson to Charles Taylor's reconstruction of modern identity. it shows how emerson's thought reconciles some tensions within modernity, such as the quest for "higher" spiritual aims and the recognition of "ordinary" experience, the ideal of authenticity and the need for community, as well as the desire for individuality and the demand for universality. I expose how emerson's work enriches Taylor's account of the 'self' through his deep vision of human experiencing 'with' and 'within' nature. I argue that reclaiming emerson's essays is an important step toward an ethics of authenticity.

      Charles Taylor's politics of recognition and herbert marcuse's critical theory both challenge the so-called neutral justice of bourgeois liberal democracies. I apply marcuse's critique of pure tolerance to develop a more critical version of Taylor's politics of recognition. this version intensifies the polarity between rights liberalism and diversity liberalism. finally, I apply Habermas's theory of communicative action to accomplish three tasks: To spell out the theoretical underpinnings for marcuse's critical theory; to further refine the critical dimensions of marcuse's position; and, to reconcile the politics of dignity with the politics of difference and critical theory.

      The aim of this paper is to analyze the conditions of possibility for a heideggerian interpretation of chapter IV of 'phänomenologie des geistes', specially the well-known dialectics of the master and the slave. in order to carry out this analysis, it will be necessary to subscribe Charles Taylor's propose of a distinction between the monological model (a model of analysis that does without the intersubjective dimension at the time of explaining the constitution of the identity) and the dialogic model (one that keeps an eye on the duality of a relation, while trying to understand it's unity and, in virtue of it, recognizes a constituent role of the other in the formation of the identity).

      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".

      This paper examines conceptions of autonomy put forward by R. F. dearden, eamonn callan and kenneth strike. the fact that these conceptions do not always agree with one another suggests that problems remain, both in conceptualizing autonomy and in understanding its role in liberal and educational theory. in particular, by considering whether these descriptions could be applied to a solitary individual it examines the extent to which these conceptions succumb to the charge that they describe persons free of any social connections and encumbrances. I argue that conceptions that are vulnerable to this charge are mistaken in that way. that there are conceptions that succeed in this manner suggests there may indeed be a successful liberal response to such criticisms of the concept. among other conclusions I argue that this makes us reconsider how we value autonomy.

      Recent demands for the recognition of equal value of different identities, represented by race, sex, ethnical groups or culture, show the necessity of a new way in which the principles of democratic and universalist recognition: Dignity and respect, should be understood, foremost in what regards to education. in particular, due Charles Taylor's analysis, we became aware of the fact that the form of recognition, which demands objectivity, requires a communicative interaction between different cultures. we conclude considering that a universalist policy of equal recognition must include, additionally to the generally admitted basic rights, the right to suppose that the traditional culture of every citizen has an equal value in a not-comparative sense.

      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.

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.

      My purpose is to examine arguments about multiculturalism by john searle, richard Rorty, and Charles Taylor. I argue that the debate over epistemological and political issues has tended to obscure the educational benefits of multiculturalism. the challenge of different points of view has been a stimulus to thought at least since the origins of western philosophy in ancient greece. A multicultural curriculum can fulfill the traditional goals of a socratic education, delivering students of their narrow and uncritical opinions and awakening them to a world of intellectual diversity. thus, multiculturalism is not so much a recent movement as a new name for an old method of teaching.

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.

      This paper is an analysis of the performance of one reading of Charles Taylor's general criticisms of naturalist accounts of morality (excluding the issue of moral realism) when measured against a specific naturalist account, in this case J.L. mackie's moral theory. it is argued that Taylor's criticisms, read in this way, fail to find purchase, despite his singling out of mackie's theory as a prime example of a theory that exhibits the flaws Taylor believes are inherent in this kind of approach to moral theory. this points the supporter of Taylor's position towards an alternative reading of his challenge to naturalist accounts of morality.

      The objectives of environmental ethics and political ecology differ. environmental ethics, such as it developed in the last few years, sought, among other things, to specify the nature of the link between human beings and nature. this philosophical approach does not allow the definition of environmental obligations to be imposed on all in the context of moral pluralism. this article pursues two goals. to illustrate our argument, we will first present four representative approaches to contemporary environmental ethics (part 2). we will recall the principal objections raised against them and the theoretical and practical dead-ends in which they culminate. we will then (part 3) propose the outline of an alternative which we call political ecology. we will then trace its boundaries and mainly its particularities in relation to environmental ethics. the objects of environmental ethics and of political ecology may be complementary but they are certainly not coextensive.

      Charles Taylor's 'politics of recognition' has given philosophical substance to the idea of 'recognition' and has solidified a link between recognition and multiculturalism. I argue that Taylor oversimplifies the valuational basis of recognition; fails to appreciate the difference between recognition of individuals and of groups; fails to articulate the value of individuality; fails to appreciate the difference between race and ethnoculture as dimensions of identity; and fails to appreciate equality as a recognitional value.

      The aim of this work is to analyze the current situation of epistemology, and those critics, such as those presented by Rorty and Taylor, that indicate the necessity of overcoming. it is intended to show that the foundational project and ideas of exact representation, elementary experience and incorrigibility, which from modernity conditioned epistemology, are untenable. however, a new form of philosophical reflection that considers the plot knowledge/language/action, can be thought. this new perspective implicates to attend to the multiples games of language in which knowledge can be taken configurating the epistemological field from other interrogations.

      This paper analyzes the communitarian project exposed in the walzer and etzioni's work as a possible answer to the disintegration of social bonds in the advanced societies (adopted by the defenders of the third way). it deals with the notion of reform of consciousness as a moral resocialization of the citizenship. in this sense, some considerations are made about the functional character deduced of this communitarian model and show the extent and limits of this model. at last, the author propose an alternative solution based on a real system of rights.

      This paper takes as its starting point the two paradigms for educational research discussed by richard pring in an earlier edition of this journal. the focus is on the role of language and how it might function in relation to research. drawing on the work of Charles Taylor it is argued that language can legitimately be conceived as constitutive of certain aspects of reality. Taylor's position, it is suggested, indicates a possible relationship between language and reality which transcends both representationalism and inferentialism. some indications of the implications of this perspective for education are briefly considered.

      This text views the case of Quebec nationalism from the vantage point of the debate between Habermas and Taylor on this question. this case highlights the problem of articulating the sphere of civic rights, whose claims are universalist, to that of culture and collective identity, whose essence is particularist. it seems that the multinational context of the Quebec-Canada confrontation needs to be approached in a manner that cannot be fulfilled by a strict proceduralism and a purely formal universalism. the Habermasian position will thus be criticized for these reasons, while Taylor's stance, which contemplates the integration of material considerations in a dialogue open to ideological alterity, will be taken into account so as to make up for the shortcomings of the former.

      This paper analyses the discussion between Taylor and Rorty about the results of overcoming epistemology. firstly, the article summarizes the Taylor's criticism to Rorty. secondly, it considers the Rortyan response to Taylor and his own arguments against Taylor's realism. the main disagreements between Rorty and Taylor are as follows: (1) Rorty says that pragmatism overcomes epistemology; Taylor, on the contrary, says that it is an uncompromising realism which overcomes the mainstream epistemological tradition; (2) they disagree about how to understand vocabularies: Taylor claims that it is always possible to know what vocabulary describes better the world, but Rorty seems to claim that vocabularies are incommensurable; (3) Taylor thinks of truth as a correspondence relation to the world; Rorty, however, dismisses that conception. thirdly, it is made an evaluation of the arguments offered by each side. especially, that section argues against the Rortyan conception of language games and its nonrealistic consequences. finally, it is suggested a reconsideration of the dichotomy realism-pragmatism.

      Charles Taylor contends that civic republicanism is inconsistent with "ontological" atomism, which comprises two tenets: Methodological individualism and "axiological individualism" (i.e., welfarism). in fact, although many leading liberal theorists (including mill and Rawls) are ontological atomists, Taylor denies that ontological atomism is consistent with liberalism or any other nondespotic political doctrine. contra Taylor, I show that atomists can subscribe to civic republicanism without inconsistency. further, I show that Taylor gives us no reason to doubt that atomists can be liberals, and I eliminate at least one possible reason for thinking that the best-known liberal theories are inconsistent with civic republicanism.

      In this article, I discuss charles Taylor’s reading of Nietzsche. Taylor argues that Nietzsche presents a challenge on the ‘deepest level’ because, on Taylor’s reading, Nietzsche forces us to consider whether or not our ‘continuing allegiance to standards of justice and benevolence’ goes against our inner nature. I argue that this purported Nietzschean challenge is more self-revealing of Taylor than it is foreboding, as it brings to light the tension between the open and pluralistic content of Taylor’s faith, and the epistemological grounding of it, which a more well-rounded appreciation of Nietzsche could help to alleviate.

      Charles Taylor's magnum opus, 'sources of the self', remains a landmark on the philosophical landscape. that it still provokes such widespread interest is in part due to the fact that it is an enigmatic work, which ostensibly does one thing, but which appears also to do many other things. this paper is an attempt to show that an investigation into Taylor's moral realism in 'sources of the self' opens up the possibility that this book can be read as an apologetic for theism, based on transcendental arguments. some of the consequences of such a reading are also addressed.

      The moral and political philosophy of pluralism has become increasingly influential. to pluralists, when values genuinely conflict we should aim to strike an appropriate balance of trade-off between them, though this means accepting that compromise will be inevitable. politics, as a result, appears as a thoroughly tragic affair. drawing on a "hermeneutical" conception of interpretation, the author develops an original account of practical reasoning, on which assume that, though making compromises in the face of conflicts is indeed often unavoidable, there are times when reconciliation, as distinct from compromise, is feasible. for this to be so, however, citizens must strive to converse--and not just negotiate--with each other, thus fulfilling the good that is at the heart of their shared political community. this is the central message of the patriotic alternative to pluralist politics that the author defends here.

      Charles Taylor's 'sources of the self' is a powerful account of the way classical, modernist, and postmodernist assumptions have led us into a philosophical and spiritual dead end. Taylor argues that the gradual development of an "interiorized" sense of self has made it all but impossible to understand the reality of value and led us into destructive forms of self-alienation. in this paper I review and defend Taylor's critique, though I go on to argue that it does not contain the resources we need to meet his constructive objectives. to affirm the reality of value and overcome the negative consequences associated with an interiorized sense of self, we must look beyond the sources that Taylor describes and criticizes. I recommend we turn to pragmatic, process, and neo-confucian discussions of selfhood. these three traditions draw upon alternative metaphysical assumptions that render plausible the claims that value is real and that the self is directly related to the world and other selves.

      In this article, I discuss the prospects of christianity in the modern world from a philosophical perspective (section 1). in order to do so, I analyse in the second section gianni vattimo's and Charles Taylor's views of the problems of modernity. in the third section, I query vattimo's answers to the question of how to overcome the problems of modernity. from a philosophical perspective vattimo focuses on the idea of weak thinking and the historicity of the subject in order to counter the violence of objectifying reason. from a religious point of view, he refers to the idea of a completely secularised christianity, with the notion of love as its essential characteristic. but these answers do not put an end to the violence with objectification and do not take into account the possibility of a violence of subjectivist reason. moreover, the commandment of love as the essence of christianity is of no help to confine secularisation and subjectification, and the violence they produce. as a conclusion (section 4), I discuss an alternative answer to question whether christianity can contribute to the solution of the problems of modern civilisation. I present the christian view of God's transcendence as a way of stressing the substantiality of the true and the good, without thereby falling back into a metaphysics of objectivity and violence.

      As he recognizes, Taylor's view of practical reasoning commits him to the existence of incommensurable world-views. however, he holds that it is, in principle, possible to overcome these incommensurabilities. he has two major arguments for this conclusion, which I label the argument from the human condition and the transition argument. I show that the first argument, though perhaps successful in the case Taylor takes as an example, cannot be generalized. the second argument is even less successful, since all the evidence it produces is compatible with a thoroughgoing relativism.

      Hegel's interpretation of plato's political thought provides the principal illustration of his metaphilosophy. however, hegel has been criticized for imposing his own metaphilosophical agenda upon plato's work, and for consequently overestimating its descriptive content while underestimating its prescriptively normative features. A re-examination of hegel's metaphilosophy nevertheless reveals that he appreciated the broader significance of plato's political philosophy within a conceptual framework that transcends the traditional dichotomy of description and prescription and that explores issues concerning the relation of theory and practice.

      With the aim of discussing the ontological content and methodological function of the notion of "reflexive equilibrium" (Rawls) for the foundation of ethics, consideration is given to the intrinsic coimplication of the universal foundation of morals with an accepted historical, cultural and personal horizon of identification. an attempt is made to articulate a hermeneutic rationality with the manifold horizons pertaining to the meaningful openness of the embodied subject. in a dialogue with C. Taylor and P. ricoeur, the author argues that a plurality of alternative ways to an ultimate ontological foundation of ethics are set forth by the notions of "flesh", "intersubjectivity" and "consciousness".

      In this paper I compare and contrast the views of two Quebec authors--charles de koninck and Charles Taylor--on Quebec nationalism and Canadian federalism. both Taylor and de koninck are Quebec nationalists and federalists. Taylor cites authors like hegel, rousseau, herder and montesquieu and, in line with a continental tradition, avoids metaphysics. de koninck is a neo-thomist and a robust aristotelian. I will first consider Taylor's position, then de koninck's position, then compare and evaluate the two. although both authors espouse a similar notion of community, de koninck's neo-aristotelian resolves possible problems inherent in Taylor's scheme.

      Contemporary discussions of the rationality of religious belief obviously have important antecedents in the history of modern philosophy, particularly in the history of the enlightenment project that so strongly challenged traditional religious belief. this paper develops two themes from this history that I will try to show are particularly important for understanding contemporary issues about the rationality of religious belief: The affirmation of ordinary life and the question of radical evil in human nature.

      This paper examines Taylor's moral realism in the light of his criticisms of 'our subjectivist civilization'. I argue that his work is valuable in its stress on the link between identity and moral judgment and its picture of human beings as 'strong evaluators', but I dispute that these considerations lead to moral realism if this is taken to include a claim to truth. specifically, I argue that Taylor's 'best account' principle may generate radical inconsistency and his depiction of practical reason does not lead to any hope of convergence. his own theism serves to illustrate these difficulties.

I defend a hegelian historical form of communitarianism which clarifies what is true and what is false in these approaches. I criticize Rorty's 'postmodernism' and defend the concepts of identity and community as critical concepts.

      The demand for the recognition of cultural differences is central to a number of debates associated with multiculturalism. following Charles Taylor's analysis of the relation between modernity and cultural pluralism, it is argued that the demand of cultural relativism, namely, that the equal value of cultures should be recognized, is not justifiable. this, however, should not serve as an excuse for underestimating the significance of cultural differences or for ethnocentric indifference towards the claim for recognition.

      Epistemology that takes intellectual virtues and vices seriously constitutes one viable alternative to modernist foundationalism, and is congruent with crucial themes in postmodern discourse. I argue that both Nietzsche and foucault gesture approvingly toward the idea that intellectual agents should devote themselves to cultivating intellectual virtues that promote their respective conceptions of a flourishing self. virtue epistemology, I claim, acknowledges the importance of passions in the intellectual life, is grounded in a "thick" conception of the person, and recognizes the ways communities aid or inhibit our pursuit of intellectual virtues.

      In "the politics of recognition," Charles Taylor powerfully articulates a human need for the recognition of distinct cultural identities but wrongly takes this to entail a presumption of 'equal' value in cultures. cultures are neither equal nor unequal in value. at the same time, Taylor fails to articulate the need that one's group identity not detract from their moral equality as persons. nancy fraser, in "recognition and redistribution," corrects Taylor's downplaying of socioeconomic equality. however, she masks the importance of recognition of distinctiveness of cultural identity as an inherent good, seeing it merely as a means to social equality.

      This essay takes as its point of departure Charles Taylor's contention in 'sources of the self', that literature--and in particular the poetry associated with what he calls 'romantic expressivism'--enables an articulation of constitutive goods that can figure as a viable alternative for the theistic support of our moral commitments. while Taylor deserves credit for his honest attempt to take literature philosophically seriously, his cavalier treatment of the actual texts he invokes to underpin his argument tends to thwart his enterprise. by way of a preliminary, broadly deconstructive reading of a set of texts also used by Taylor (the material of william wordsworth's 'immortality ode'), I argue that literary texts simultaneously invite and resist transcendentalizing interpretations, such as Taylor's.

      The underlying assumption is that an ethics of virtue, unlike an ethics of duty, is best developed independently of a conception of God. in this paper I argue that this view is misleading and obscures the need of virtue ethics for the concept of God. in making my philosophical point, I look to the work of Charles Taylor and suggest that any contemporary ethics of virtue, in order to meet its own desired aim of retrieving a viable moral self, requires a "deep" conception of the good, and that the most viable source for this conception is the theistic notion of God. on this account, the ethics of virtue turns out to be no more independent of the concept of God than an ethics of duty or obligation.

      This essay reconstructs Charles Taylor's three critiques of Jürgen Habermas's theories. each critique is made on a different level: (1) the individual: It is a serious weakness that Habermas's theory cannot grapple with the question of "why be moral?"; (2) the socio-political: Justice must be and is treated as one good among many; (3) the global/intercultural: Habermas's account of modernity involves an acultural narrative of the history of western civilization. in all these criticisms, Taylor is pointing to the need for a richer, less procedurally determined and less narrow model of moral philosophy. only such a model will be truly effective and meaningful.

      In the middle of the century, max horkheimer exposes modern individualism pessimistically. he states: "the theme of this era is self-preservation, while there is no self to preserve." horkheimer's pessimism regarding the state of the individual can be explained by his mistaken vision of modernity and an incomplete conception of human rationality. referring to Charles Taylor's work on modernity, this article offers a critical analysis of horkheimer's position, with a view to better understanding what modernity truly is, and, foremost, to rediscovering the ideal of authenticity which gives modern individualism its true worth.

      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.

      In the following article I examine two attempts, put forth by Charles Taylor and michel foucault, to avoid nihilism. after explicating Taylor's understanding of why the self is in a state of crisis in contemporary society, I offer a critical analysis of his suggestion that we can find meaning in ordinary life. due to the problems which the present structure of western society poses for modes of ordinary life, I suggest that Taylor's appeal to ordinary life is a highly improbable solution. I then turn to foucault, who provides an excellent contrast to Taylor, partially because his notion of the self as an aesthetic project is accused by Taylor as being nihilistic. upon explicating foucault's project to escape nihilism, I scrutinize his philosopher-as-critic option. although problematic in that it does not advocate any specific sites to find meaning, I conclude that it has more to offer the average person than Taylor's somewhat idealistic alternative does.

      I discuss Taylor's essay and Habermas's response, focusing initially on Taylor's account of the politics of difference. I see difficulties in Taylor's emphasis on authenticity and a lack of precision concerning what is involved in demanding recognition of specific identity. here, I outline five distinct ways of understanding this demand. I then consider which of these five interpretations can be accommodated by Habermas's recent theory. I show how Habermas now separates morality from ethics less sharply than before, and argue that his constitutional state is more sensitive to difference than Taylor allows, although it cannot accommodate all forms of difference. however, unlike Taylor who thematizes the moral aspect of liberal political exclusion. Habermas can be criticized for failing to discuss the moral dimensions of inevitable exclusion of difference.

      My paper is a response to Charles Taylor's chapter in the same volume. Taylor's paper has two main sections: An account of the "context" of nationalism, emphasizing the centrality of nation-building to modern states; and an account of the "sources" of nationalism, which elaborates Taylor's earlier ideas about the importance of "recognition". I agree with Taylor's account of the context of nationalism, but I argue that his account of the "sources" of nationalism is less successful. in particular, Taylor's emphasis on "recognition" cannot explain the specificity of nationalist mobilization.

      A productive discussion of cultural difference and multiculturalism presupposes to accept the relativity of cultures ('cultural relativism'), which is a heritage from herder. we can cope with cultural otherness only to the extent that a hermeneutic component meets with a political component of recognition. in face of the experienced cultural otherness we discover what is peculiar to our own. this is a rephrasing of rousseau's search of authenticity. the article discusses Charles Taylor's mapping of multiculturality and adds new components deriving from kristeva's psychoanalytical model of a 'split' subjectivity which according to her view always contains elements of 'otherness' within the own.

      The book reconstructs three different ways of thinking about the contingency of human identity and its implications for ethics and political theory: 'weak thought' as exemplified by Rorty, lyotard and postmodernism; the 'strong hermeneutics' of gadamer, ricoeur and Taylor; and the discourse ethics of juergen Habermas. it is argued that weak thought falsely absolutizes contingency, and that discourse ethics demarcates the limits of contingency in the wrong way. A case for a strong hermeneutic framework for thinking about these and related matters (such as the debate between realism and antirealism, and the idea of ecological responsibility) is presented.

      This article addresses a tension in Charles Taylor's work between his endorsement of pluralism and his opposition to subjectivism about value. Taylor views "strong evaluation" as based on standards of worth, the objectivity of which he explains in terms of a non-platonic ontology of value. but he also recognizes what I call "the individuating role of personal commitments," the idea that who I am is a matter of some projects having special value 'for me'. I argue that Taylor's strategies for resolving this tension--narrativity and "personal resonance"--are unsuccessful, largely owing to the ontological character of his value theory.

L'originalità di questa diagnosi sta nell'individuare le cause del "disagio della modernità" nell'incapacità di rendere esplicite le "intuizioni morali" imperniate intorno all'ideale rousseauiano di "autenticità". gli ostacoli a quest'opera di esplicitazione vengono dalla filosofia morale anglosassone prevalente, che evita ogni discorso esplicito sui beni, e dai neonietzschiani che confondono l'ideale 'morale' dell'autenticità con la dottrina 'etica' del relativismo.

      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.

      Influential postcolonial theories have successfully shown that the failure to recognize the value of certain cultural forms inflicts a form of harm. what these theories fail to note is that small, prosperous nations also require a politics of recognition as a result of the asymmetrical nature of relations governing major and minor cultures. to prove this point I consider aspects of contemporary danish cinematic production. I attempt to identify the strategy for recognition that is best suited to filmmakers belonging to small, but prosperous nations.

      This article comments upon Charles Taylor's essay "the politics of recognition" in two stages. firstly, it critiques the strain in Taylor's argument which describes identity and the need for its recognition as issues of "modernity," whose ethical and political implications are generalizable across a wide set of social struggles. I argue that even within the context of the very recent past, the meaning of identity and of recognition has varied widely. secondly, it argues that certain understandings of identity and of recognition have emerged in the post 1960s feminist and african-american movements which highlight shortcomings in Taylor's analysis of multiculturalism. in contrast to Taylor's understanding of multiculturalism as a process where those with authority give preliminary credence to the claims of some of those whose previous claims for recognition have been denied, this essay argues for an understanding of multiculturalism which calls into question the very processes by which judgments of worth have often previously been made.

I contend that flanagan's interpretation is incorrect and that his criticisms are for the most part misguided.

      According to one model of social theory, the social theorist seeks to give as rich an account as possible of a society's own self-understanding or self-interpretation. the second model, by contrast, involves challenging the society's self-understanding on the basis of a radical vision of ultimate standards of judgment. Charles Taylor claims that neither of these models should be privileged over the other, that both are equiprimordial ways of theorizing social life. however, Taylor does privilege the first model in his own practice of social theory--which can be summed up in the phrase, "the rhetoric of understanding.".

      In his recent works, Charles Taylor distinguishes between two forms of liberalism, which are respectively associated with Canada and Québec. the first one is characterized by its support for the neutrality of the state, while the second imposes almost no restriction to the intervention of the state. because it is less "homogenizing", Taylor favors the second form. many parts of Taylor's analysis seems to me to be false or erroneous. first, the distinction between the two liberalisms is not at all clear. second, the liberalism that Taylor favors is not acceptable. third, it is not true that Québec and Canada adhere to different forms of liberalism.

      The problem of public consultation over the allocation of health care resources is addressed by considering the role that quality of life measures, such as QALYs and the nottingham health profile, could play. such measures are typically grounded in social surveys, and as such may reflect public preferences for health care priorities. using Charles Taylor's concepts of "weak" and "strong" evaluation, it is suggested that current quality of life measures are inadequate, insofar as they typically presuppose that survey respondents are mere "weak evaluators", who express only inarticulate preferences. respondents may, conversely, be understood as strong evaluators, with deeper visions of human nature and the good life informing their health preferences. space is then created for such respondents to be asked to defend their preferences, and so be encouraged to reflect critically and publicly on the beliefs and prejudices that ground their view of health care priorities.

I conclude that these books do advance our understanding of liberalism's view of the self and community, the possibility of liberal neutrality, and the political content of communitarianism.

      In this article it is argued that in order to explain the meaning of realism' we do not need the notion of accurate representation', by defending a particular aspect of richard Rorty's antirepresentationalism. we have to distinguish between a practical' and a conceptual argument for antirepresentationalism. the conceptual argument, which can only be rejected by means of a petitio principii, can be subject to two different interpretations. against Rorty, I argue that a realistic reading of the argument is the most plausible one, defending Charles Taylor's common sense realism.

      It is unquestionable that "rationality" is one of the most important terminologies used in modern philosophy. in most cases, people take the logical consistency as a key criterion of rationality. Charles Taylor adjusted this opinion in his paper titled "rationality". I am not quite satisfied with Taylor's resolution on the problem of rationality.(edited).

      Foucault's statements about the nature of social power are dispersed among various works and interviews. they are sometimes metaphorical and obscure. in this paper I pull together, reconstruct, and assess his claims that power is omnipresent, positive (not repressive), non-substantive, and non-subjective. in the end I conclude that although his theory does not itself distinguish between normatively acceptable and unacceptable forms of power and although it is somewhat less novel than it pretends, it does advance a coherent and original conception which can support a social criticism free of the ideas of objective interests and values.

      This work examines Charles Taylor's philosophy of practice, human agency, and practical reasoning in 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.

      This essay on Charles Taylor's "sources of the self" ascribes great success to the book as a rich historical inventory of conceptions of the self. it argues, however, that Taylor gives too little attention to selves constructed as intersections of group- memberships (simmel's view). hence in his reflections on the social isolation and personal anxiety that he finds in selfhood nowadays he unduly favors private religion as a remedy. he ignores the social remedy of persons expanding and recombining group- memberships to serve enlarged benevolence and public- spiritedness. this omission also reflects an ill- considered rejection of utilitarianism.

      Central to Taylor's critique of modernism is his insistence that overarching frameworks, especially religious ones, are necessary to our sense of self and to our capacity for living morally. Taylor stands in the breach between modernism and post-modernism, fighting both: With one hand against the enlightenment attempt to bring value down to nature, and with the other against the post-modernist claim to be able to do without evaluative frameworks altogether. in this paper, I argue that despite notable feats of intellectual heroism, Taylor fails in both campaigns.

      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.

      Taylor, sandel, walzer and MacIntyre waver between granting the community authority over the individual and limiting this authority so severely that communitarianism becomes a dead letter. the reason for this vacillation can be found in the aspiration of each theorist to base liberal values -- equality and liberty -- on particularism. communitarians compound liberal formalism by adding to the liberal goal, individual autonomy, the equally abstract aim of grounding autonomy in a communally shared identity. far from returning political theory to substantive considerations of the good, communitarianism legitimizes really existing liberal politics -- the politics of the nation-state.

      As part of a volume reviewing and evaluating the philosophical contributions of Charles Taylor, this article raises the questions of whether Taylor has drawn too sharp a line between hermeneutics and the natural sciences. it argues that Taylor's view of the natural sciences is insufficiently historical and neglectful of changes in both method and content in those sciences during the past century and a half. citing works both by natural scientists and by historical and sociological students of those sciences, it is suggested that more effective connections between them and the human sciences might be effected.

      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.

      Views of the self may be plotted on a set of coordinates. on the axis that runs from fragmentation to unity, Rorty and Rorty's freud champion the decentered self while wallwork, Taylor, and ricoeur argue for a sovereign, unified self. on the other axis, which runs from the disengaged, inward-turning self to the engaged and "sedimented" self, wallwork, would be positioned near Rorty, defending self-creation against the narrative identity affirmed by Taylor and ricoeur. despite his skepticism concerning the communitarian agenda of the narrativists, flanagan grants that the self is social and relational--a position further explored by oliver, stendahl, deutsch, and mack in "selves, people, and persons".

      This is a review of Charles Taylor's "sources of the self" and some related recent publications from the same author. Taylor's hermeneutics of the modern identity is evaluated as a substantial contribution to contemporary moral and political philosophy. the reviewer agrees with the critique on modern moral naturalism'. at the same time, however, he formulates some doubts about the possibility of a unified moral ontology: The paradoxical nature of the modern self' (with its search for inward moral sources and its dependence, at the same time, on a larger community for the articulation of this identity) can maybe function as a radical heteronomous, not-integrated source of the modern identity. this paradox points probably also to the essentially searching character of every moral ontology.

      Three questions about Charles Taylor's central positions in "sources of the self" are raised. first, how can Taylor's realism about goods by reconciled with his view that judgments about genuine goods may be in conflict? secondly, are choices between the conflicting claims of goods governed by any standard or are they mere preferences? thirdly, do Taylor's historical narratives presuppose the very interpretations which they are supposed to confirm, and is this damaging?.

      In several publications Charles Taylor makes a distinction between strong' and weak' evaluations. strong evaluations are qualitative distinctions -- in terms of noble', demeaning', etc. weak evaluators evaluate desires only on the basis of their strength and intensity. the ethical theory par excellence that is not capable of making qualitative distinctions, is for Taylor utilitarianism. after having explored the meaning of the concept of strong evaluations, I analyze Taylor's argument for that critique on utilitarianism. I argue that qualitative distinctions cannot be built into a utilitarian theory. however, not all utilitarians are weak evaluators. more sophisticated utilitarians evaluate desires by their contribution to a rational life- plan. they do have an identity, but it is not a moral one. my conclusion is that what Taylor really means is that utilitarians are not able to articulate their identity.

      This article assesses jurgen Habermas's discourse ethics as a version of moral universalism. Habermas's contextualist critics, inspired by hegel's critique of kant, reject his distinction between moral and ethical questions. they maintain that no moral norms could be justified without reference to some substantive ethical commitment. the article reviews recent contributions of seyla benhabib, georgia warnke and Charles Taylor to this debate. while discourse ethics is defended in general, it is argued that Habermas needs to develop further his thinking on the relationship between moral and ethical uses of practical reason if his defense of universalism is to convince.

      In 'spirit in the world', karl rahner contends that the existence of an absolute being is affirmed. however, such an affirmation is beyond the scope of his own methodology. since the questions that characterize the philosophical theology of rahner are also those that occupy postmodern thought (structures of knowing, the status of ontology, and the constitution of the subject), this essay attempts to read rahner through the insights of philosophers such as derrida and Taylor. the thesis is that rahner's method does not lead to absolute being; rather, God can be understood as the restlessness that drives the human heart.

      Charles Taylor tries to show how a rightly conceived "being authentic," is the antidote against the loss of meaning and of shared values, because, so he claims, human beings can simply not exist otherwise. the paper discusses the nature of this argument for the promotion of this specific kind of human being and of society. in an educational context the authentic individual, understood in a particular way, expresses oneself in the responsibility of the educator for what she undertakes vis a vis the "educandus," and in the appeal of the "educandus" to the educator to determine one's position.

      The article situates the central claims of Taylor's "ethics of authenticity" and "the politics of recognition" in the broader context of recent hermeneutic philosophy. the term strong hermeneutics is coined for Taylor's position, which is distinguished from the weak hermeneutics of Rorty and postmodernism and the deep hermeneutics of Habermas. these three kinds of hermeneutics show different levels of scepticism to the claim that ideals are accountable to reason. the defensibility of this claim is explored with a focus on the ideal of authenticity and the political conditions of its instantiation.

      Charles Taylor is one of the leading philosophers of the present age. this collection of original essays by distinguished philosophers is the first attempt at a comprehensive assessment of his work from a wide range of perspectives. the central theme is the pluralism of Taylor's approach and the plurality of the problems he addresses. language, history, politics, ethics, science, truth and method are discussed by scholars such as richard Rorty, sir isaiah berlin, quentin skinner and clifford geertz. Taylor replied and rearticulates his own views.

      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.
