Pensar a dignidade sem falar de linguagem da capacidade em agir: Uma discussão crítica sobre o pragmatismo sociológico e a teoria do reconhecimento de Axel Honneth

Abstract : This paper intends to work on a form of unthought in sociological theory. It is concerned with sociology trends inspired by pragmatism that nevertheless claim to cover an extremely broad spectrum of human capacities in connection with theories of action and recognition. Our intention is, more than those theories usually do, to think about human sites within mankind. What is therefore suggested is to extend the human capacity registers in two ways: by lowering the requirements of the anthropology of capacities inspired by pragmatism, and by revising the frontiers of anthropological difference that it affirms. Thus, the paper proposes an anthropological reflection on the human properties that enable human beings to take their place in the world even before appearing as individuals who have rights. Our thinking opens up a space of understanding regarding states of great fragility, in which people no longer have either the ability to participate in the relevant dynamics of interaction, or the resources to struggle for recognition. It explores areas which A. Honneth’s theory does not, and where a sociological and phenomenological analysis of human dignity can be built on different bases.
