Languages of Solidarity. Substantive and Procedural Articulations
On Thursday, June 16th at 12 am (CET), we will host the CAS SEE Seminar with Elena Irrera, presented by our Fellow Achille Zarlenga.
Solidarity is one of the categories of thought that, in recent years, have received increasing attention within the domain of political philosophy. Alongside notions like “respect” and “toleration”, it has often been conceptualized as an element which contributes to characterizing the architecture of democratic constitutional States. I propose to offer a conceptual characterization of an ideal of solidarity which, far from representing a supererogatory principle, can be employed in the construction of justice legitimacy in a liberal-democratic society. More to the point, by combining a historic-philosophical approach (e.g. by drawing on Aristotle’, Rawls’ and Habermas’ reflections) with insights of political theory, I will work out a view of solidarity as “empowered justice”, i.e. as a source of binding obligations of justice towards persons and groups who advance specific claims of recognition within certain communities. In the second part of my presentation I will ask whether it makes any sense to speak of solidarity as an ideal able to shape informing procedures of joint public deliberations in liberal democracies. I will suggest that a value-based and outcome-oriented proceduralism could shape the deliberative process designed to produce normative contents conceivable as “measures and duties of solidarity”.
