Author’s Abstract

  1. People whose person-making capacities or status are diminished or who lack them altogether are mostly ignored in mainstream theories of recognition.
  2. This entry clarifies the conceptual landscape around and some of the key questions about recognition in relation to these people.
  3. The concept of personhood is analyzed into three different sub-concepts – juridical, moral and psychological – and the connection of these to recognition on relevant concepts of recognition is discussed.
