dc.description.abstractHabermas has clearly overshot the important, even prelinguistic, foundation of identity development by focusing on linguistic communication. Honneth locates the right concept in recognition and the “undamaged identities” that it may afford, but offers a crude taxonomy which does little to understand the truly Hegelian struggle as Pippin has rearticulated. Erik Erikson’s crises of psychosocial development can be seen as progressive struggles for the necessary forms of social recognition which condition our individual freedom. Any philosophical or psychological work concerning the development of individuals within society must understand the importance of recognition and allow for its development within communicating communities to afford individuals lifelong development and freedom.en_US
