What People are saying about this

Review of Politics - Richard J. Bernstein
Thomas McCarthy has written a remarkable and masterful study of Jürgen Habermas…He exhibits a thorough mastery of all of Habermas's writings,including unpublished manuscripts.

Philosophical Review - Julius Sensat
McCarthy offers an account of Habermas's ideas which is sensitive both to their systematic character and to the course of their development. It is a sympathetic presentation which is comprehensive and accurate…
