Cambridge Companion to Habermas by Stephen K. White
Book DescriptionJurgen Habermas is unquestionably one of the foremost philosophers writing today. His notions of communicative action and rationality have exerted a profound influence within philosophy and the social sciences. This volume examines the historical and intellectual contexts out of which Habermas' work emerged, and offers an overview of his main ideas, including those in his most recent publication. Amongst the topics discussed are his relationship to the Frankfurt School of critical theory and Marx, his unique contributions to the philosophy of the social sciences, the concept of 'communicative ethics', and the critique of post-modernism. New readers and non-specialists will find this the most convenient, accessible guide to Habermas currently available. Advanced students will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Habermas.

This book provides a model of active citizenship that counters the Tea Party's exclusivist, self-righteous portrait of democratic life.
Ethos of a Late-Modern Citizen, Hardback (March 2009)
Contends that Western democracies face novel challenges demanding our reexamination of the role of citizens. This work offers an incisive interpretation of our late-modern ethical-political condition and explains how a distinctive 'ethos', or spirit, of citizenship might constitute part of an exemplary response.

Sustaining Affirmation, Paperback (September 2000)» View all books by Stephen K. White
Presenting the idea of weak ontology and the broad criteria behind it, this title shows how these are already at work in the thought of contemporary writers of seemingly very different perspectives: George Kateb, Judith Butler, Charles Taylor, and William Connolly. This book both demonstrates and underscores the strengths of weak ontology.
