Multiculturalism and Its Implications

University essay from Uppsala universitet/Teologiska institutionen

Author: Jane Saman; [2016]

Keywords: ;


This thesis relies on the works of Charles Taylor in the field of multiculturalism, more specifically the well-known essay The Politics of Recognition. Through a theoretical analysis, arguments from Kenan Malik as well as Amelie Rorty are used as tools to highlight challenges with communitarian theory in the face of multiculturalism. The study exposes that communitarianism in the face of diversity can prove to be challenging, and that cultural identity is too comprehensive to substantially define. It is much more feasible to attain individual dignity, identity and worth in a multicultural society so as to promote personal freedom and negate the misrepresentation of groups.
