Description

This book provides an introduction to Habermas's work, from his early writings on the public sphere to his most recent work on the philosophical discourse of modernity. Outhwaite examines all of Habermas's major works and steers a path through the many debates to which they have given rise. Primarily, the book provides a detailed critical analysis of Habermas's most important work, "The Theory of Communicative Action". Outhwaite also discusses Habermas's writings on ethics and politics and his critical appraisal of Foucault, Derrida and others.
