Description

Reading across the whole range of Habermas' work, this book traces the development of the theory of communicative reason from its inception to its defence against postmodernism. Bernstein's analyses are always problem centred and thematic rather than textual, making this a major contribution to the critical literature on Habermas.

Reviews

'Bernstein's outstanding book is now also essential reading for anyone concerned with Habermas's thinking and its implications for contemporary social and political theory' - Radical Philosophy

'One of the best books yet on Habermas.' - Dr N Stevenson, Sheffield University
