Knowledge and human interests by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

305 editions published between 1960 and 2019 in 16 languages and held by 3,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Habermas describes Knowledge and Human Interests as an attempt to reconstruct the prehistory of modern positivism with the intention of analysing the connections between knowledge and human interests. Convinced of the increasing historical and social importance of the natural and behavioural sciences, Habermas makes clear how crucial it is to understand the central meanings and justifications of these sciences. He argues that for too long the relationship between philosophy and science has been distorted. In this extraordinarily wide-ranging book, Habermas examines the principal positions of modern philosophy - Kantianism, Marxism, positivism, pragmatism, hermeneutics, the philosophy of science, linguistic philosophy and phenomenology - to lay bare the structure of the processes of enquiry that determine the meaning and the validity of all our statements which claim objectivity."--Publisher web site
The structural transformation of the public sphere : an inquiry into a category of bourgeois society by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

405 editions published between 1962 and 2020 in 11 languages and held by 3,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Jurgen Habermas's most concrete historical-sociological book and one of the key contributions to political thought in the postwar period. It will be a revelation to those who have known Habermas only through his theoretical writing to find his later interests in problems of legitimation and communication foreshadowed in this lucid study of the origins, nature, and evolution of public opinion in democratic societies. -- Book cover
The theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

184 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Theory of Communicative Action represents a major contribution to contemporary social theory. Not only does it provide a compelling critique of some of the main perspectives in 20th century philosophy and social science, but it also presents a systematic synthesis of the many themes which have preoccupied Habermas for thirty years."

Philosophical-political profiles by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

117 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,053 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 )

121 editions published between 1983 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,052 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

The philosophical discourse of modernity : twelve lectures by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

74 editions published between 1985 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Philosophical Discourse of Modernity is a tour de force that has the immediacy and accessibility of the lecture form and the excitement of an encounter across, national cultural boundaries. Habermas takes up the challenge posed by the radical critique of reason in contemporary French poststructuralism. Tracing the odyssey of the philosophical discourse of modernity, Habermas's strategy is to return to those historical "crossroads" at which Hegel and the Young Hegelians, Nietzsche and Heidegger made the fateful decisions that led to this outcome. His aim is to identify and clearly mark out a road indicated but not taken: the determinate negation of subject-centered reason through the concept of communicative rationality. As The Theory of Communicative Action served to place this concept within the history of social theory, these lectures locate it within the history of philosophy. Habermas examines the odyssey of the philosophical discourse of modernity from Hegel through the present and tests his own ideas about the appropriate form of a postmodern discourse through dialogs with a broad range of past and present critics and theorists. The lectures on Georges Bataille, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, and Cornelius Castoriadis are of particular note since they are the first fruits of the recent cross-fertilization between French and German thought. Habermas's dialogue with Foucault - begun in person as the first of these lectures were delivered in Paris in 1983 culminates here in two appreciative yet intensely argumentative lectures. His discussion of the literary-theoretical reception of Derrida in America - launched at Cornell in 1984 - issues here in a long excursus on the genre distinction between philosophy and literature. The lectures were reworked for the final time in seminars at Boston College and first published in Germany in the fall of 1985. -- from (August 22, 2011)
Technik und Wissenschaft als "Ideologie" by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

256 editions published between 1968 and 2020 in 18 languages and held by 1,577 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? "
The postnational constellation : political essays by Jürgen Habermas( )

36 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and German and held by 1,496 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

Postmetaphysical thinking : philosophical essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,293 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

On the pragmatics of social interaction : preliminary studies in the theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

99 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these lectures and two additional essays, Habermas outlines an intersubjective approach to social theory that takes the concepts of meaning and communication to be central. In doing so, he situates his project relative to other influential accounts of how meaning is constituted, in particular those of Edmund Husserl, Wilfrid Sellars, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. He examines the nature of social interaction and its connection to communication, developing a linguistic conception of convention and intentionality. He also offers an account of social and individual pathologies using the concept of systematically distorted communication. Taken together, these analyses contribute significantly to current debates in the philosophy of action and language."--Jacket
