Social Relationships and Dependency

Social Relationships and Dependency

(p.25) 2 Social Relationships and Dependency
A General Theory of Domination and Justice

Frank Lovett (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that domination should be understood structurally, as a condition experienced by persons or groups when they are related to other persons or groups in a particular way. One of the structural features present in all social relationships characterized by domination is dependency; dependency is analyzed in terms of the costs of exit faced by the subjects of domination. This chapter also briefly considers the role of reflective equilibrium in developing a descriptive account of domination.

Keywords:   social relationships, structure, dependency, exit costs, reflective equilibrium
