Postnational Constellation by Jurgen Habermas
Book DescriptionDoes a global economy render the traditional nation--state obsolete? Does globalization threaten democratic life, or offer it new forms of expression? What are the implications of globalization for our understanding of politics and of national and cultural identities? In The Postnational Constellation, the leading German philosopher and social theorist J?rgen Habermas addresses these and other questions. He explores topics such as the historical and political origins of national identity, the catastrophes and achievements of "the long twentieth century," the future of democracy in the wake of the era of the nation--state, the moral and political challenges facing the European Union, and the status of global human rights in the ongoing debate on the sources of cultural identity. In their scope, critical insight, and argumentative clarity, the essays in The Postnational Constellation present a powerful vision of the contemporary political scene and of the challenges and opportunities we face in the new millennium. Those unfamiliar with Habermasa s theoretical work will find in this volume a lucid and engaging introduction to one of the worlda s most influential thinkers. For readers familiar with Habermasa s writings, The Postnational Constellation provides an invaluable application of his social and political theories to current political realities.

Lure of Technocracy, Hardback (February 2015)
Over the past 25 years, Jurgen Habermas has presented what is arguably the most coherent and wide-ranging defence of the project of European unification and of parallel developments towards a politically integrated world society.
Crisis of the European Union, Paperback (September 2013)
Translated by Ciaran Cronin. In the midst of the current crisis that is threatening to derail the historical project of European unification, Jurgen Habermas has been one of the most perceptive critics of the ineffectual and evasive responses to the global financial crisis, especially by the German political class.
Philosophical-Political Profiles, Paperback (November 2012)View all books by Jurgen Habermas
"At the hands of a minor talent, profiles are often flat, two-dimensional outlines of a thinker s intellectual physiognomy. At the hands of a master like Jurgen Habermas, they can become something far more substantial and profound.
