Recognition without ethics?

The recognition orientation has attracted the interest of political philosophers, however, some of whom are seeking to develop a new normative paradigm that puts recognition at its centre. Unlike the identity model, the status model construes recognition in a way that does not assign that category to ethics. By employing the status model, with its principle of participatory parity, it was possible to handle apparently ethical questions, such as the recognition of same-sex marriage, and questions of minority religious and cultural practices. The chapter argues that one can integrate redistribution and recognition without succumbing to schizophrenia. By construing redistribution and recognition as two mutually irreducible dimensions of justice, and by submitting both of them to the deontological norm of participatory parity, it positions them both on the common terrain of Moralität.
