"Agency", subjectivity, articulation. Charles Taylor's political-moral epistemology

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Taylor, human rationality, subjectivity, agency

Charles Taylor's ethical-political thinking is based upon an original understanding of human rationality. This understanding allows to develop an expressivist paradigm focused on the concept of "agency". Taylor never presented explicitly and systematically his understanding of human rationality. In this essay, the Author reconsiders Taylor's paradigm, showing the innovative and propositive elements emerging from that paradigm in order to re-think some crucial categories of ethical-political thought. What emerges is a conception of rationality focused on the dimensions of "agency" and practice.
