Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"White presents a clear and accurate account of Habermas' recent work, most importantly The Theory of Communicative Action. Centering on the notion of communicative rationality, he traces Habermas' elaborate effort to develop a non-foundationalist universalism through all its twists and turns. His discussion of the 'minimal ethics' built into the structure of communication and of the implications of this for a theory of justice is particularly perceptive. His study will be of value to everyone interested in Habermas, beginner and initiate alike." Thomas McCarthy, Northwestern University

"White's succinct text is remarkably well written and skillfully organized." Contemporary Sociology
