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

1 edition published in 1999 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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 )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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
Knowledge and human interests by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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. This edition contains a postscript written by Habermas for the second German edition of Knowledge and Human Interests
