Overview

The relationship between civil society and public life is in the forefront of contemporary discussion. No single scholarly voice informs this discussion more than that of Jürgen Habermas. His contributions have shaped the nature of debates over critical theory, feminism, cultural studies, and democratic politics. In this book, scholars from a wide range of disciplines respond to
Habermas's most directly relevant work, The Structural Transformation of the Public
Sphere. From political theory to cultural criticism, from ethics to gender studies,
from history to media studies, these essays challenge, refine, and extend our understanding of the social foundations and changing character of democracy and public discourse.Craig Calhoun is Professor of Sociology and History and Director of the Program of Social Theory and CrossCultural Studies at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill.Contributors: Hannah Arendt. Keith Baker. Seyla Benhabib.
