Perspectives on Habermas

Edited by Lewis E. Hahn

This collection contains 30 critical and descriptive essays by prominent philosophers on the work of well-known and controversial philosopher Jürgen Habermas, the most eminent living representative of the tradition known as Critical Theory.

An extremely controversial figure, he was a student of the famous Theodor Adorno, though he later took issue with him. Habermas's life's work has been devoted to defending the Enlightenment ideals of rationality, humanism, and the possibilities of discourse.

The Times Literary Supplement has called him "the foremost social and political thinker in Germany today." He is the author of many books, including The Theory of Communicative Action and Communication and the Evolution of Society.
