Judging by the quantity and quality of recently published work, the issue of recognition seems at the forefront of many epistemological, sociological, anthropological and political debates. And yet there is not much clarity on how recognition operates, on the kind of effects which the operation we perform when recognizing bring about. The purpose of my article is to shed light on a specific (and overlooked) form of recognition, situated between the cognitive one (identification, as discussed in the analytical debate over identity criteria) and the normative one (respect and esteem, as defined by Charles Taylor and Axel Honneth), a form of recognition I will call ‘descriptive’, because its function is not so much to identify a person as to describe her features.
