Pluralism and the pragmatic turn : the transformation of critical theory : essays in honor of Thomas McCarthy by James Bohman( )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume reflect on and expand Frankfurt School critical theory as reformulated after World War II by Karl-Otto Apel, Jurgen Habermas, and others. Frankfurt School critical theory since the pragmatic turn has become a richer source of critical analysis that is at the same time socially and politically more effective. The essays are dedicated to Thomas McCarthy, who has done perhaps more than any other scholar to introduce English-speaking audiences to contemporary German critical theory. The book is organized into three parts. Part one deals with social theory and the rational basis of communication, including basic issues raised by the pragmatic turn. Part two examines conceptions of autonomy and the self. Part three deals with political theory, focusing on problems stemming from sociocultural pluralism. Together, the essays provide an overview of the latest developments in Frankfurt School critical theory as it responds to the challenges of pragmatism and social pluralism

La teoría crítica de Jürgen Habermas by Thomas McCarthy( Book )

23 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Más que ningún otro pensador contemporáneo, Jürgen Habermas ha logrado integrar la crítica de la racionalización en una reconstrucción del proyecto de la modernidad. En su obra encontramos el gran bosquejo de una vía intermedia entre las oposiciones que desgarran a la cultura y a las sociedades modernas. La obra de Habermas puede considerarse en conjunto como un sostenido esfuerzo por repensar —a fondo— la idea de razón y la teoría de una sociedad democrática basada en ella. Los viejos modelos han caído en descrédito; y no disponemos todavía de modelos nuevos; pese a lo cual nos vemos en la necesidad de tomar cada día decisiones preñadas de consecuencias para el futuro. En la época de confusión que nos ha tocado vivir, la teoría crítica de la sociedad de Habermas puede servir para proporcionar a nuestro pensamiento alguna dirección, de la que tan menesterosos estamos. Y, en este aspecto, el pensamiento de Habermas no tiene par en la escena contemporánea. Sin embargo, ha resultado evidente que la principal dificultad para entender la obra de Habermas es la falta de una visión sistemática y comprensiva de su pensamiento. A consecuencia de ello, las discusiones críticas, en pro y en contra, se ven distorsionadas con demasiada frecuencia por malentendidos fundamentales. Cubrir tal necesidad es el objeto del presente estudio

Moral consciousness and communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this important book Habermas develops his views on a range of moral and ethical issues. Drawing on his theory of communicative action, Habermas elaborates an original conception of 'discourse ethics', seeking to reconstruct a moral point of view from which normative claims can be impartially judged. 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. Moral Consciousness and Communicative Action confronts directly a variety of difficult and controversial problems which are at the centre of current debates in philosophy and social and political theory

The theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, for the first time in English, is volume one of Jurgen Habermas's long-awaited magnum opus: The Theory of Communicative Action. This pathbreaking work is guided by three interrelated concerns: (1) to develop a concept of communicative rationality that is no longer tied to the subjective and individualistic premises of modern social and political theory; (2) to construct a two-level concept of society that integrates the 'lifeworld' and 'system' paradigms; and (3) to sketch out a critical theory of modernity that explains its sociopathologies in a new way. Habermas approaches these tasks through a combination of conceptual analyses, systematic reflections, and critical reconstructions of such predecessors as Marx and Weber, Durkheim and Mead, Horkheimer and Adorno, Schutz and Parsons. Reason and the Rationalization of Society develops a sociological theory of action that stresses not its means-ends or teleological aspect, but the need to coordinate action socially via communication. In the introductory chapter Habermas sets out a powerful series of arguments on such foundational issues as cultural and historical relativism, the methodology of Verstehen, the inseparabilty of interpretation from critique. In addition to clarifying the normative foundations of critical social inquiry, this sets the stage for a systematic appropriation of Weber's theory of rationalization and its Marxist reception by Lukacs, Horkheimer and Adorno."--Publisher description

The theory of communicative action. a critique of functionalist reason by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in English and held by 16 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
