The theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 1986 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries 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

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
