Recognition as Human Being

There have been the diffrent experiences of misrecognition, malrecognition, exclusion and ignoring other and many people have been rejected and eliminated, in throughout history. The people who their sin was being different from the majority of the people. These people include women, slaves, blacks, homosexuals and etc. Concepts such as citizenship, nationalism, nation-state have many restrictions and these restrictions lead to other eliminating. Misunderstanding has always had various formations throughout history, for this reason several problem analysed here:

- Market economics educates selfish and self-interested people, the other is ignored and misrecognized in this educational structure. It seems we have reached from invisible hand to invisible man.
- Is the economic restructuring, essential for human recognition?
- What is the relation between neoliberalism and misrecognition?
- Citizenship, both in ancient Greece and in modern times, recognizes some people and ignores others.
- There are people who are not recognized in their own country or abroad; how is the status of these people in society?
- There are people today who live in camps instead of cities, How are these people recognized?
