  2. Recognition Theory as Social Research: Investigating the Dynamics of Social Conflict.Nicholas Smith & Shane O'Neill (eds.) - 2012 - Palgrave MacMillan.
    Presents the case for an exciting new research program in the social sciences based on the theory of recognition developed by Axel Honneth and others in recent years.

  5. Recognition, Equality and Democracy: Theoretical Perspectives on Irish Politics.Jurgen De Wispelaere, Cillian McBride & Shane O'Neill (eds.) - 2016 - Routledge.
    This volume brings together a range of theoretical responses to issues in Irish politics. Its organising ideas: recognition, equality, and democracy set the terms of political debate within both jurisdictions. For some, there are significant tensions between the grammar of recognition, concerned with esteem, respect and the symbolic aspects of social life, and the logic of equality, which is primarily concerned with the distribution of material resources and formal opportunities, while for others, tensions are produced rather by certain interpretations of (...)

    Struggles Against Injustice: Contemporary Critical Theory and Political Violence.Shane O'Neill - 2010 - Journal of Global Ethics 6 (2):127-139.
    This article investigates a significant problem in contemporary critical theory, namely its failure to address effectively the possibility that a campaign of political violence may be a legitimate means of fighting grave injustice. Having offered a working definition of 'political violence', I argue that critical theory should be focused on experiences of in justice rather than on ideals of justice. I then explore the reasons as to why, save for some intriguing remarks on retrospective legitimation, J rgen Habermas has not (...)

    Recognition and Redistribution in Theories of Justice Beyond the State.Shane O'Neill & Caroline Walsh - 2009 - European Journal of Political Theory 8 (1):123-135.
    We consider here how cultural and socioeconomic dimensions of justice beyond the state are related. First we examine cosmopolitan theories that have drawn on John Rawls's egalitarian liberal framework to argue that a just global order requires substantive, transnational redistribution of material resources. We then assess the view, ironically put forward by Rawls himself, that this perspective is ethnocentric and insufficiently tolerant of non-liberal cultures. We argue that Rawls is right to be concerned about the danger of ethnocentrism, but wrong (...)

    Critical Theory, Democratic Justice and Globalisation.Shane O'Neill - 2005 - Critical Horizons 6 (1):119-136.
    One way of providing a focus for critical theory today is to articulate those substantive and robust norms of egalitarian justice that would appear to be presupposed by the idea of a republican and democratic constitutional order. It is suggested here that democratic justice requires the equalisation of effective communicative freedom among all structurally constituted social groups (SCSGs) and that this will have far-reaching implications that entail the deconstruction of all social hierarchies in both domestic and global orders. This argument (...)

    Constitutional Reason and Political Identity.Shane O'Neill - 2001 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 4 (3):1-26.
    This article presents a normative?theoretical account of democratic legitimacy that meets the challenge of moral and cultural pluralism in a way that takes the avoidance of oppression and violence to be a fundamental imperative. The discourse?theoretical perspective of jürgen Habermas reveals that reasoned agreement among citizens is the only alternative to political oppression. Pace Habermas, however, the legitimacy of even basic constitutional principles does not require us to agree with one another for the same reasons. While we can affirm such (...)
