Young, Iris Marion. “Asymmetrical Reciprocity: On Moral Respect, Wonder, and Enlarged Thought.” In Intersecting Voices: Dilemmas of Gender, Political Philosophy and Policy, 38-59. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1997. (22)
Positionality remains a core aspect to the belief of understanding a world dynamic which remain critical in the present day. As Iris Marion Young explains ideals of positionality surround two different dynamics in that it embraces moral respect in the way of taking a persons perspective as well as “imaginatively taking their positions”.209 In this breath Young and her exploration of positionality in her piece “Asymmetrical Reciprocity: On Moral Respect, Wonder, and Enlarged Thought” beings to pinpoint the relationship and internal monologue which the self comes into contact with, sometimes, daily. A primary influence which Young adopts is that of Hannah Ardent. Ardent’s concept of “enlarged thought” represents a fairly fantastical, fairly kind nuance which asks individuals to embrace their conversation partners and those they come into contact with as an individual to which one owes “moral respect” in considering their opinion and positionality.210 Overall, Young’s dissection of communication through enlarged thought and reciprocal gift giving grants the reader insight into, not only, understanding and accepting the role of others positionality but also in realizing and coming to terms with their own circumstance and view in life.
