LA SFIDA DELLA DIVERSITÀ CULTURALE AL LIBERALISMO. ORIGINI FILOSOFICHE E PROSPETTIVE ETICO-POLITICHE: JÜRGEN HABERMAS E CHARLES TAYLOR
Parole chiave:Philosophy, Politics, Intercultural processes, Liberal institutions, Charles Taylor, Jürgen Habermas
This paper analyzes the contemporary philosophical and political debate concerning the difficulties raised by intercultural processes and liberal institutions, showing how today’s liberal system crisis of legitimacy is rooted in the philosophical grounds of occidental cultural identity. Two authors are mainly considered: Charles Taylor and Jürgen Habermas. They both refuse the postmodern theory of the exhaustion of practical reason’s normativity and found the possibility of a reason’s virtuous development on the explanation of its genealogical link with the history of occidental identity.
