Axel Honneth on Identity - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 791
Identity/Honneth: (Honneth refers here to Hegel's early Jena writings, See Hegel/Honneth): individuals in social interactions are always concerned with their own identity or with gaining a positive self-relationship. (2) Since this is only ever attainable through mediation by others, people are also referred to in their claims to identity to enforce them socially, in interaction, and that always also means: in conflict with others.
Intersubjectivity/Identity/HegelVsHobbes/Honneth: In contrast to Hobbes, Hegel now refers this basic experience of the conflictual character of social relationships not to motives of self-preservation, but to "moral drives" (3) and above all "to the experience of a violation of moral claims". (4) See also Hegel/Honneth, Recognition/Honneth.
