Volume I examines the concept of rationality and its relation to problems of social action, intersubjective communication and socialhistorical change. Habermas develops a series of powerful arguments on controversial issues such as cultural relativism, the nature of Verstehen and the inseparability of interpretation and critique. In addition to clarifying the normative foundations of critical social theory, this prepares the way for a creative appropriation of Webster's theory of rationalization and its Marxist reception by Luk+cs, Horkheimer and Adorno

Moral consciousness and communicative action by Jürgen Habermas ( Book )
6 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 7 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.Jurgen Habermas is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Frankfurt. "Moral Consciousness and Communicative Action is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy
