About The Book : Jürgen Habermas is one of the foremost social and political philosophers of our time. His influence extends across philosophy, sociology, political science and law. Habermas has championed the linguistic turn in critical theory and developed his own brand of post-Kantian pragmatism. A rare systematic thinker, Habermas has furthered our understanding of modernity, social interaction and linguistic practice, societal institutions, rationality, morality, the law, globalization, and the role of religion in multicultural societies. He has helped shape discussions of truth, objectivity, normativity, and the relationship between the human and the natural sciences.
