Most widely held works by Jürgen Habermas
Knowledge and human interests by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
91 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,582 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
Moral consciousness and communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
79 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,575 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
Philosophical-political profiles by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
83 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,561 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
The theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
112 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,552 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

Postmetaphysical thinking : philosophical essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
50 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,174 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

Technik und Wissenschaft als "Ideologie." by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
116 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,031 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "La technique et la science constituent désormais les forces productives les plus importantes des sociétés développées. Cette situation nouvelle pose le problème de leur relation avec la pratique sociale, telle qu'elle doit s'exercer dans un monde où l'information est elle-même un produit de la technique. Jürgen Habermas examine dans les études réunies dans ce volume l'incidence de la rationalité scientifique sur le "monde social vécu" et ses répercussions sur le fonctionnement de la démocratie. Il montre les limites de la technocratie qui tend à s'abriter derrière une pseudo-rationalité pour assurer le triomphe de ses intérêts. Il analyse le système des valeurs en cours, les finalités que se propose le corps social sans toujours en avoir conscience, la fonction des idéologies qui les systématisent. Du même coup il est ici abordé une des plus grandes questions de notre temps : comment le consensus social que postule la démocratie peut-il s'opérer dans les sociétés industrielles avancées ? "
On the pragmatics of social interaction : preliminary studies in the theory of communicative action by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
55 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 845 libraries worldwide
"In these lectures and two additional essays, Habermas outlines an intersubjective approach to social theory that takes the concepts of meaning and communication to be central. In doing so, he situates his project relative to other influential accounts of how meaning is constituted, in particular those of Edmund Husserl, Wilfrid Sellars, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. He examines the nature of social interaction and its connection to communication, developing a linguistic conception of convention and intentionality. He also offers an account of social and individual pathologies using the concept of systematically distorted communication. Taken together, these analyses contribute significantly to current debates in the philosophy of action and language."--Jacket

On the pragmatics of communication by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
27 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 648 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 )
22 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 604 libraries worldwide
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."--Jacket
The postnational constellation : political essays by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
24 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 558 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
The inclusion of the other : studies in political theory by Jürgen Habermas( Book )
21 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 72 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
