Reflective Authenticity: Rethinking the Project of Modernity is a challenging consideration of what remains of ambitious Enlightenment ideas such as democracy, freedom and universality in the wake of relativist, postmodern thought.
Do clashes over gender, race and culture mean that universal notions such as justice or rights no longer apply outside our own communities? Do our actions lose their authenticity if we act on principles that transcend the confines of our particular communities ? Alessandro Ferrara proposes a path out of this impasse via the notion of reflective authenticity. Drawing on Aristotle, Kants concept of reflective judgement and Heideggers theory of reflexive self-grounding, Reflective Authenticity: Rethinking the Project of Modernity takes a fresh look at the state of Critical Theory today and the sustainability of postmodern politics.

Synopsis:

Alessendro Ferrara, in this challenging and controversial study, argues that we can show how the problem of validity lies in modernity's construction of a form of validity that depended upon abstract, metaphysical notions of judgement removed from useful example. Ferrara's pioneering argument is that authenticity must become reflective if it is to provide a useful measure for validity. Only a reflective authenticity can build on the postmodern insight of value pluralism without repeating the well-worn tenets of difference, diversity and anti-foundationalism. Then we will find a universal basis to judgement and validity that is lacking in the postmodern emphasis on private, self-created identities.
