Abstract

Charles Taylor has made a remarkable attempt to recover the moral ideal of authenticity as opposed to the debased form of authenticity, that leads to individualism. He points at the dialogical nature of authenticity, and finally, in another work, justifies the need for recognition. I want to show that the middle part of this chain of argument, dialogicality, if properly understood, cannot lead us to recognition in the sense Taylor ascribes to the latter.
