Habermas and the Unfinished Project of Modernity by Maurizio Passerin d'Entreves

Book Description

Habermas occupies a key position in the debates about modernity and postmodernity. His qualified defence of the Enlightenment, and his conception of modernity as an "unfinished project", represent one of the most compelling alternatives to the claims of postmodernism. This book offers a wide-ranging examination of Habermas's conception of modernity and his account of the legacy of the Enlightenment. It also provides a systematic assessment of Habermas's work, "The Philosophical Discourse of Modernity". The essays in this volume are written by philosophers, social theorists, intellectual historians and literary critics, including Jay Bernstein, James Bohman, Diana Coole, Fred Dallmayr, David Hoy, David Ingram, Christopher Norris, James Schmidt and Joel Whitebook. The volume also includes Habermas's essay, "Modernity - An Incomplete Project".
