Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andrew Arato is Dorothy Hart Hirshon Professor of Political and Social Theory in the department of sociology at The New School University. Born in 1944, he received his PhD in history from the University of Chicago. He is best known for his influential book Civil Society and Political Theory, coauthored with Jean L. Cohen. He is also known for his work on critical theory, and his latest works have focused on constitutions. He is co-editor of the journal Constellations. A distinct chronology defines Arato's intellectual biography, which often parallels and was inspired by the evolution in thinking of opposition intellectuals in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe and, most especially, in Hungary, the country of Arato's birth. At the same time, much of his work was hammered out in conjunction with his longtime intellectual partner Jean L. Cohen and strongly influenced by the philosophical and sociological work of J rgen Habermas.show more
