The theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

242 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study offers a systematic reconstruction of the theoretical foundations and framework of critical social theory. It is Habermas' "magnum opus", and it is regarded as one of the most important works of modern social thought. In this second and final volume of the work, Habermas examines the relations between action concepts and systems theory and elaborates a framework for analyzing the developmental tendencies of modern societies. He discusses in detail the work of Marx, Durkheim, G.H. Mead and Talcott Parsons, among others. By distinguishing between social systems and what he calls the "life-world", Habermas is able to analyze the ways in which the development of social systems impinges upon the symbolic and subjective dimensions of social life, resulting in the kind of crises, conflicts and protest movements which are characteristic of advanced capitalist societies in the late-20th century."--Publisher description
Philosophical-political profiles by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

145 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the hands of a minor talent, profiles are often flat, two-dimensional outlines of a thinkerʹs intellectual physiognomy. At the hands of a master like Jürgen Habermas, they can become something far more substantial and profound. With astonishing economy, Habermas sketches his impressions of the giants of recent German thought, several of whom were his personal mentors. For those of his readers accustomed to the demandingly abstract level of his theoretical work, the results will prove a welcome surprise. Without sacrificing any of the rigor and brilliance of those longer studies, he displays a remarkable ability to combine depth with brevity. Philosophical-Political Profiles not only adds a new dimension to our understanding of the intellectual odyssey of Germanyʹs leading contemporary thinker but also provides a series of stunning insights into the thought of the generation that preceded him. -- Publisher's website
Moral consciousness and communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

147 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This long-awaited book sets out the implications of Habermas's theory of communicative action for moral theory. "Discourse ethics" attempts to reconstruct a moral point of view from which normative claims can be impartially judged. The theory of justice it develops replaces Kant's categorical imperative with a procedure of justification based on reasoned agreement among participants in practical discourse.Habermas connects communicative ethics to the theory of social action via an examination of research in the social psychology of moral and interpersonal development. He aims to show that our basic moral intuitions spring from something deeper and more universal than contingent features of our tradition, namely from normative presuppositions of social interaction that belong to the repertoire of competent agents in any society

179 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 2,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The structural transformation of the public sphere : an inquiry into a category of bourgeois society by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

136 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inclusion of the other : studies in political theory by Jürgen Habermas( )

46 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text contains Jurgen Habermas's most recent work in political theory and political philosophy. Here Habermas picks up some of the central themes of "Between Facts and Norms" and elaborates them in relation to current political debates of the late 1990s. One of the distinctive features of Habermas's work has been its approach to the problem of political legitimacy through a sustained reflection on the dual legitimating and regulating function of modern legal systems. Extending his discourse theory of normative validity to the legal-political domain, Habermas has defended a proceduralist conception of deliberative democracy in which the burden of legitimating state power is borne by informal and legally institutionalized processes of political deliberation. Its guiding intuition is the radical democratic idea that there is an internal relation between the rule of law and popular sovereignty. In these essays he brings this discursive and proceduralist analysis of political legitimacy to bear on such urgent contemporary issues as the enduring legacy of the welfare state, the future of the nation state, and the prospects of a global politics of human rights
On the pragmatics of communication by Jürgen Habermas( )

47 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together Habermas's key writings on language and communication, this text includes classic as well as new material in an introduction to Habermas's formal pragmatics - a vital aspect of his social theory. Written from 1976 to 1996, the essays show the extent to which formal pragmatics underpins Habermas's theory of communicative action. They are presented in chronological order, so that the reader can trace developments and revisions in Habermas's thought. The volume includes a critical discussion of Searle's theory of meaning, and Richard Rorty's neopragmatism. It concludes with Habermas's recent defence of his theory of communicative action, in which he reaffirms his view that interpretative understanding inescapably involves evaluation

The postnational constellation : political essays by Jürgen Habermas( )

29 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does a global economy render the traditional nation-state obsolete? Does globalization threaten democratic life, or offer it new forms of expression? What are the implications of globalization for our understanding of politics and of national and cultural identities?" "In the Postnational Constellation, the leading German philosopher and social theorist Jurgen Habermas addresses these and other questions. He explores topics such as the historical and political origins of national identity, the catastrophes and achievement of 'the long twentieth century', the future of democracy in the wake of the era of the nation-state, the moral and political challenges facing the European Union, and the status of global human rights in the ongoing debate on the sources of cultural identity. In their scope, critical insight, and argumentative clarity, the essays in The Postnational Constellation present a powerful vision of the contemporary political scene and of the challenges and opportunities we face in the new millennium."--Jacket

Technik und Wissenschaft als "Ideologie." by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

196 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "La technique et la science constituent désormais les forces productives les plus importantes des sociétés développées. Cette situation nouvelle pose le problème de leur relation avec la pratique sociale, telle qu'elle doit s'exercer dans un monde où l'information est elle-même un produit de la technique. Jürgen Habermas examine dans les études réunies dans ce volume l'incidence de la rationalité scientifique sur le "monde social vécu" et ses répercussions sur le fonctionnement de la démocratie. Il montre les limites de la technocratie qui tend à s'abriter derrière une pseudo-rationalité pour assurer le triomphe de ses intérêts. Il analyse le système des valeurs en cours, les finalités que se propose le corps social sans toujours en avoir conscience, la fonction des idéologies qui les systématisent. Du même coup il est ici abordé une des plus grandes questions de notre temps : comment le consensus social que postule la démocratie peut-il s'opérer dans les sociétés industrielles avancées? "

Postmetaphysical thinking : philosophical essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

40 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of Habermas's recent essays on philosophical topics continues the analysis begun in The Philosophical Discourse of Modernity. In a short introductory essay, he outlines the sources of twentieth-century philosophizing, its major themes, and the range of current debates. The remainder of the essays can be seen as his contribution to these debates. Habermas's essay on George Herbert Mead is a focal point of the book. In it he sketches a postmetaphysical, intersubjective approach to questions of individuation and subjectivity. In other essays, he develops his distinctive, communications-theoretic approach to questions of meaning and validity. The book as a whole expands on his earlier efforts to define a middle ground between nostalgic revivals of metaphysical conceptions of reason and radical deconstructions of reason. -- Publisher description

Truth and justification by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jurgen Habermas has developed the theory of communicative action primarily in the context of critical social and political theory and discourse ethics. The essays collected in this volume, however, focus on the theory's implications for epistemology and metaphysics. They address two fundamental issues that have not figured prominently in his work since the early 1970s. One is the question of naturalism: How can the ineluctable normativity of the perspective of agents interacting in a linguistically structured lifeworld be reconciled with the contingency of the emergence and evolution of forms of life? The other is a key problem facing epistemological realism after the linguistic turn: How can the assumption that there is an independently existing world be reconciled with the linguistic insight that we cannot have unmediated access to "brute" reality?" "Truth and Justification collects Habermas's major essays on these topics published since the mid-1990s. They offer detailed discussions of truth and objectivity as well as an account of the representational function of language in terms of the formal-pragmatic framework he has developed. In defending his post-Kantian pragmatism, Habermas draws on both the continental and analytic traditions and endorses a weak naturalism and a form of epistemological realism."--Page 4 of cover
