Evil, Genocide and the Limits of Recognition

. World: The third term of recognition Hegel gestures towards the possible political significance of evil as world annihilation but does not fully conceptualize this dynamic, and the more recent variants of recognition theory inspired by Hegel seem to offer little help in this regard. This underdeveloped but tantalizing aspect of his phenomenology of ‘voiding’ a shared world of

, to a large extent, on whether language is seen as a transparent conveyor of meaning or not. If language is seen as a neutral conveyor of meaning (as is mostly the case in phenomenology and symbolic interactionism), this naturally leads to little interest in the systematic study of linguistic practices and the language in texts.

hypervisible – to state institutions? For whom is visibility an available political strategy, and at what cost?’ (Beauchamp 2013 : 52). And to this I would add, for whom is invisibility a political strategy? Sara Ahmed’s ( 2006 ) brilliant theorisation of racialised space, mobility, and movement comes to mind here as well.

The predicament of history

négritude are significant in this respect. So too, as Mary Chamberlain establishes, was George Lamming’s entry in the middle 1950s into the Parisian intellectual milieu which brought together Sartrean phenomenology and négritude – from which so much contemporary thinking on ‘the fact of blackness’ has subsequently derived. Insofar as French philosophy touched the intellectual culture of the British in

civilisations Moreover, he develops a methodology best described as post-​transcendental phenomenology, centring on a phenomenological concept of ‘world’ fashioned over the course of an intellectual career (see Adams and Arnason, 2016). With this methodology, he reconstructs Eisenstadt’s ‘cultural ontologies’ via a reinterpretation of Weber as diverse cultural and inter-​cultural articulations of the world. In his chief work Civilizations in Dispute, his agenda for ongoing inquiry is organised around the cultural, political and economic constitution of civilisations; in his

State–society relations and conflict in post-socialist Transcaucasia

The phenomenology of ‘new war’ The first thesis directly contradicts assumptions which are still widespread in the literature on Transcaucasian affairs. This region is commonly analysed in terms of a naive culturalistic paradigm. Conflict and violence seem to be triggered either by the aggravation of objective ethnic grievances or by the clash of contrasting concepts of ethnic identities. The main players in

Aesthetics, fragmentation and community

. Instead of disappearing or becoming nothing more than the heritage of a bygone age, art, in Hegel’s slightly strange formulation, ‘points beyond itself ’. Hegel’s description of the meaning of art’s ‘pointing beyond itself ’ that follows the occurrence of the phrase in the ‘Introduction’ to the Aesthetics repeats his argument in the Phenomenology which states that Spirit simply moves beyond art to dialectical reason and philosophy. Thus, Hegel states quite simply that, although one ‘may well hope that art will always rise higher and come to perfection . . . the form of

As Hegel himself famously declared in The Phenomenology of Spirit ( 1977 ), recognition entails the achievement of self-consciousness and affirmation of one's autonomy and freedom in relation to others – that is, the emergence of a subject ‘with particular
