January 28, 2016 | Sixth Annual Jurisprudence Lecture - London. A J Julius on 'Mutual Recognition'

The Centre for Law and Cosmopolitan Values is pleased to announce the sixth Annual Jurisprudence Lecture with A J Julius, Associate Professor in Moral and Political Philosophy at the UCLA Department of Philosophy and author of Reconstruction (Princeton University Press, 2016).

Friendship, conversation, art, justice, law, interpersonal morality, and ordinary practical cooperation offer examples of a common syndrome, mutual recognition. Each of two mutually recognizing persons knows herself to be capable of and responsible for acting toward the other in ways that presuppose the other’s knowing herself to be capable of and responsible for doing the same. After bringing out some libertarian, egalitarian, and solidaristic aspects of a cosmopolitan political ideal of mutual recognition, the lecture will argue that it depends for its achievement on interpersonal and international struggle.
