Recognition is for Brandom an answer to the question of the conditions of possibility of conceptual norms. Brandom distinguishes three distinct dimensions of the recognitive process: (a) the social and pragmatic dimension, (b) the inferential dimension, and (c) the historical dimension. Furthermore, he reconstructs the conceptual genesis of the recognitive structure from the reflexive application of a form of primitive intentionality. Finally, he understands the philosophical method as a form of higher order recognition.
