Resumen

Axel Honneth's development of the Frankfurt School's Critical Social Theory has increased the amount of attention that is paid to the dimension of political praxis by emphasizing the social struggle for recognition. Nevertheless, the political-sociological axis of this tradition remains relatively unexplored and unclear. Taking this as a starting point, I investigate the contribution that the pragmatic sociology of Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot could make to the fortification of this political dimension. I do this by tracing a line of argument through several of Boltanski's studies in the direction of a political-sociological axis. I show that this aspect of Boltanski's sociology can be understood as a very fruitful analysis of processes of political articulation that may help Critical Theory overcome a political deficiency.
