Knowledge and human interests by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

227 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 3,010 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. This edition contains a postscript written by Habermas for the second German edition of Knowledge and Human Interests

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

132 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,726 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 )

159 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,666 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

Philosophical-political profiles by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

58 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,068 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

Postmetaphysical thinking : philosophical essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

35 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 804 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

The inclusion of the other : studies in political theory by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

45 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text contains Jurgen Habermas's most recent work in political theory and political philosophy. Here Habermas picks up some of the central themes of "Between Facts and Norms" and elaborates them in relation to current political debates of the late 1990s. One of the distinctive features of Habermas's work has been its approach to the problem of political legitimacy through a sustained reflection on the dual legitimating and regulating function of modern legal systems. Extending his discourse theory of normative validity to the legal-political domain, Habermas has defended a proceduralist conception of deliberative democracy in which the burden of legitimating state power is borne by informal and legally institutionalized processes of political deliberation. Its guiding intuition is the radical democratic idea that there is an internal relation between the rule of law and popular sovereignty. In these essays he brings this discursive and proceduralist analysis of political legitimacy to bear on such urgent contemporary issues as the enduring legacy of the welfare state, the future of the nation state, and the prospects of a global politics of human rights
On the pragmatics of communication by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

42 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together Habermas's key writings on language and communication, this text includes classic as well as new material in an introduction to Habermas's formal pragmatics - a vital aspect of his social theory. Written from 1976 to 1996, the essays show the extent to which formal pragmatics underpins Habermas's theory of communicative action. They are presented in chronological order, so that the reader can trace developments and revisions in Habermas's thought. The volume includes a critical discussion of Searle's theory of meaning, and Richard Rorty's neopragmatism. It concludes with Habermas's recent defence of his theory of communicative action, in which he reaffirms his view that interpretative understanding inescapably involves evaluation
Truth and justification by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jurgen Habermas has developed the theory of communicative action primarily in the context of critical social and political theory and discourse ethics. The essays collected in this volume, however, focus on the theory's implications for epistemology and metaphysics. They address two fundamental issues that have not figured prominently in his work since the early 1970s. One is the question of naturalism: How can the ineluctable normativity of the perspective of agents interacting in a linguistically structured lifeworld be reconciled with the contingency of the emergence and evolution of forms of life? The other is a key problem facing epistemological realism after the linguistic turn: How can the assumption that there is an independently existing world be reconciled with the linguistic insight that we cannot have unmediated access to "brute" reality?" "Truth and Justification collects Habermas's major essays on these topics published since the mid-1990s. They offer detailed discussions of truth and objectivity as well as an account of the representational function of language in terms of the formal-pragmatic framework he has developed. In defending his post-Kantian pragmatism, Habermas draws on both the continental and analytic traditions and endorses a weak naturalism and a form of epistemological realism."--P. [4] of cover
Faktizität und Geltung : Beiträge zur Diskurstheorie des Rechts und des demokratischen Rechtsstaats by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

53 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auch in den etablierten Demokratien sind die bestehenden Institutionen der Freiheit nicht mehr unangefochten, obgleich die Bevölkerungen hier eher auf mehr, denn auf weniger Demokratie zu drängen scheinen. Ich vermute allerdings, daß die Beunruhigung noch einen tieferliegenden Grund hat - die Ahnung nämlich, daß im Zeichen einer vollständig säkularisierten Politik der Rechtsstaat ohne radikale Demokratie nicht zu haben und nicht zu erhalten ist. Aus dieser Ahnung eine Einsicht zu machen, ist das Ziel der vorliegenden Untersuchung
The postnational constellation : political essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 561 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
