The essays in Recognition, Work, Politics indicate the diversity and continuity of contemporary French critical theory concerning both the question of politics and its philosophical articulation. These themes are approached and addressed from directions that include post-structuralism, the paradigm of the gift, and post-marxism. Recognition, Work, Politics also highlights critical theories developed in France today that concentrate on the central issues of recognition and work. These themes highlight the renewed reception of German Critical Theory in contemporary French thought particularly around the project of recognition developed by Axel Honneth. Philosophers and social and critical theorists published in Recognition, Work, Politics include Etienne Balibar, Jacques Ranciere, Axel Honneth, Christophe Dejours, Alain Caille, Christian Lazzeri, Emmanuel Renault, Gerard Raulet and Yves Sintomer.
