Abstract

Although John Dewey never developed an explicit “Theory of Recognition,” he did contribute vastly to at least three fields of recognition-theoretical inquiry: the ontology of personhood, social ontology, and the political theory of struggles for recognition. The closest Dewey comes to developing something like an explicit theory of recognition is in his lectures on social and political philosophy in China 1919–1920 (Dewey, Lectures in China, 1919–1920. Honolulu: Hawaii University Press, 1973; Dewey, EJPAP 7(2):7–44, 2015). There he presents a theory of struggles for public recognition as the basic social-ontological framework for an experimentalist social and political philosophy.
