!e aim of this article consists in the reconstruction of the social-philosophical model of struggle for recognition that discloses the normative grammar of social life. For this purpose the author carries out the analysis of the basic normative principles of recognition and the main strategies of their justifications in
the works of A. Honneth, N. Fraser, Ch. Taylor. On the basis of the obtained research results the following inferences are drawn: "rstly, under the conditions of postmodern societies moral foundations of social interactions cannot be reduced to the universal principle of equality and in this case turn out to be the conflictladen integration of different normative obligations. Secondly, the justification of moral principles should be carried out by the constellation of the methodological approaches of the philosophical anthropology, social and discursive theories.
