Recognition is a name of a problem rooted in German idealism and Hegel's thought. It is not one problem but a family of problems. Indeed, it is a research programme, in which Axel Honneth is an important practitioner.

The tree of knowledge, like other trees, should be inspected by its fruits and not by exposing its roots. So my main concern is in rendering the problem of recognition in current idiom, rather than in Hegel's original idiom. What I shall try to do here is to present an account of the problem of recognition, which is parallel to the account suggested in Honneth's Struggle of Recognition. It is parallel in Plutarch's sense of ‘parallel’ lives, namely as an object of comparison.
