Justicia e identidad - Justice and identity

This paper nalyzes the relationship between one of the main themes of contemporary political philosophy, that of justice, and one of the main phenomena that characterize our societies today: the diversity of identities. In particular we start from the idea that it is necessary to overcome the vision of the State and its homogenous citizens and break old stereotypes that are the basis of many of the Manichean visions in the contemporary world. Retrieving, among others, Nancy Fraser’s proposal, highlighting the relevance of thinking three-dimensionally about justice: not only from the economic dimension of distribution, but also the cultural dimension of recognition and the political dimension of representation, because in the contemporary world injustices exist not only in the economic field but also in the cultural and political realms; from exploitation and marginalization, imposition and cultural violence, and lack of power and self-determination.
