Nancy Fraser Debates Her Critics

Historically, leftwing accounts of injustice focused primarily on economic harms, such as poverty, exploitation, and inequality. Recently, however, with the collapse of Communism and the rise of identity politics, attention has turned toward cultural harms, such as cultural imperialism, "misrecognition," and disrespect. New challenges for the left are raised: How to do justice to the legitimate claims of multiculturalism without abandoning the left's historic - and still indispensable - commitment to economic equality? How to broaden the understanding of injustice by adding (cultural) insult to (economic) injury?"Adding Insult to Injury" traces the debate sparked by Nancy Fraser's controversial effort to combine the social politics of equality and the cultural politics of difference, while probing the tensions between them. The volume contains Fraser's influential essay "From Redistribution to Recognition?"; critical responses by Judith Butler, Richard Rorty, Iris Marion Young, Anne Phillips, and Rainer Forst; and Fraser's rejoinders to them.
