The Ethics of Authenticity

Everywhere we hear talk of decline, of a world that was better once, maybe fifty years ago, maybe centuries ago, but certainly before modernity drew us along its dubious path. While some lament the slide of Western culture into relativism and nihilism and others celebrate the trend as a liberating sort of progress, Charles Taylor calls on us to face the moral and political crises of our time, and to make the most of modernity's challenges. At the heart of the modern malaise, according to most accounts, is the notion of authenticity, of self-fulfillment, which seems to render ineffective the whole tradition of common values and social commitment. Though Taylor recognizes the dangers associated with modernity's drive toward self realization, he is not as quick as others to dismiss it. He calls for a freeze on cultural pessimism. In a discussion of ideas and ideologies from Friedrich Nietzsche to Gail Sheehy, from Allan Bloom to Michel Foucault, Taylor sorts out the good from the harmful in the modern cultivation of an authentic self. He sets forth the entire network of thought and morals that link our quest for self-creation with our impulse toward self-fashioning, and shows how such efforts must be conducted against an existing set of rules, or a gridwork of moral measurement. Seen against this network, our modern preoccupations with expression, rights, and the subjectivity of human thought reveal themselves as assets, not liabilities. By looking past simplistic, one-sided judgments of modern culture, by distinguishing the good and valuable from the socially and politically perilous, Taylor articulates the promise of our age. His bracing and provocative book gives voice to the challenge of modernity, and calls on all of us to answer it.… (més)

Based on a series of lectures delivered in 1991, there is a significant difference between the text and the audio. Oscillating between dense inacessibility and plain speech, between profundidty and glib naive generalisations, this is a fantastic example of Canadian Idealism. It would be unfair and simplistic to describe this as a book in favour of reformism, or to characterise the book as saying "for the left to win it must sound like or entertain the arguments of the right." And yet there is something very Canadian about arguing that "all sides" are valid, striking a balance between all positions, and and seeking to muddle through. Of course Taylor insists he is not advocating balance, but rather going back to the original ideas of, in this case, primarily authenticity, and re-emphasising the good parts of those ideas. Reframing the argument away from 'is the quest for authenticity good or bad' to 'how can we produce good authenticity.' This is similar to the way Alain de Botton argues for good porn, instead of for or against porn, etc etc. And yet. What are the limits of this style of argument? Will we find ourselves arguing for better facism instead of being simplistically for or against facism? I remove from context, simplify and exagerrate. I know. But. There is much to be said both for and against Canadian Idealism. This book can serve as a useful place to start such a discussion. ( )

LA ÉTICA DE LA AUTENTICIDAD
El ensayo que se traduce en este volumen, La ética de la autenticidad, según el título de la edición norteamericana, o El malestar de la modernidad, según reza la primera versión canadiense, es el último libro publicado por el filósofo canadiense, es el último libro publicado por el filósofo canadiense Charles Taylor (1931) y puede ser presentado como una culminación de su obra más extensa, Sources of the Self. The Making of Modern Identity. El trabajo de Taylor, profesor de filosofía en la Universidad de McGill, es exponente de una perspectiva hermenéutica que se encamina a la critica social y cultural. El presente ensayo indaga las formas y las causadas del individualismo ético moderno frente al cual realiza un esfuerzo de recuperación de las fuentes sustantivas de valoración de determinadas tradiciones culturales. Charles Taylor muestra aquí, también, un ejercicio de su comunitarismo democrático al reivindicar el lugar central de las comunidades en la constitución de la identidad personal y colectiva.

In his perennially popular Massey lectures, now with an updated look, Charles Taylor focuses on the key modern concept of self-fulfilment, often attacked as the central support of what Christopher Lasch has called "the culture of narcissism." To Taylor, self-fulfilment, although often expressed in self-centred ways, isn't necessarily a rejection of traditional values and social commitment; it also reflects something authentic and valuable in modern culture. Only by distinguishing what is good in this modern striving from what is socially and politically dangerous, Taylor says, can our age be made to deliver its promise.

Man finner ikke frem til hva som er verdifullt ved å rote på soveværelset, derimot finner man det ved å analysere de historisk frembragte, kollektive forestillinger det moderne selvet har om seg selv. Charles Taylor er professor ved McGill University, Canada og leverer med Autentisitetens etikk (The Malaise of Modernity) et viktig bidrag til debatten om det moderne samfunnets grunnlag og fremtidsutsikter. Oversatt av Petter Nafstad
