categories we could, he argues, not even begin to have cognitive dilemmas, because we would have no forms of objectivity of the kind present in maths that
organise the material of cognition in ways about which we can disagree.

nature of that event, and is not to be read as the inadequacy specifically of
Heidegger’s political judgements.36 Adorno too, perhaps no less inadequately,
announced in 1949: ‘Cultural criticism finds itself up against the last level of a dialectic between culture and barbarism: to write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric and this
also eats up the cognition which expresses why it became impossible to write poetry
today.’37 He subsequently came to modify the claim in his Aesthetic Theory, for which
aesthetic activity seemed the only possible form of insurrection or
Integrative concepts for a criminology of mass violence
. Cognition and emotion have long been seen to be intimately coupled,
however, and although the former is afforded primacy, it is clear
that the modes of thought described above have the effect of licens
ing feelings of righteousness and revenge, and minimizing or
deflecting self-censure and its associated feelings of guilt, blame
and personal failure. These are, to quote Bollas in Cohen, ‘troubling emotional recognitions, of which one needs to be innocent’.39

problem facing any taxonomy of markets will be the question of boundaries.
Slater in chapter 5 uncovered some of the critical conditions under which
a market can be constructed and deconstructed, drawing attention to
the processes of social cognition and
and bio-chemistry, sociology, psychology and sciences of cognition,
and technical expertise.
This shift of focus completely changes the nature of our accounts, and the
status of major questions about quality. If we consider amateurs as our
informants, instead of deciphering them with our theoretical preconceptions, these questions become difficult issues in their debates and experiments, instead of being dogmatic and definitive answers defended by each
theory. Does one need others’ recommendations to like good products or
to be sensitive to high quality? Do tastes

organisational processes. Laurent Bonelli and Francesco Ragazzi ( 2014 ), for instance, show the ongoing importance
of paper-based memos to the functioning of French domestic intelligence
services. Louise Amoore ( 2013 ; 2014 ) explains the ways in which information
about the world is spun out by continual and emergent negotiations
between human bodies, sense, cognition, and data
characteristics. Arendt's relationship to current variants of
recognition theory is contentious (see Markell 2003 ). While recognition is typically cast as a matter of
undistorted cognition of the particular socially embedded identities
carried by self and other, Arendt takes a dim view of any
theoretical subordination of the political to identity, above all
