Habermas: A Very Short Introduction

James Gordon Finlayson

Very Short Introductions

  • Provides a completely up to date and much-needed entry into the long and forbiddingly technical works of the most influential German philosopher alive today
  • Covers Habermas's influence on a wide variety of fields, including philosophy, political and social theory, cultural studies, sociology, and literary studies
  • Explains how Habermas's ideas are applied to present day social and political situations
  • Unlike other writings on Habermas, this explains his intellectual framework and technical vocabulary rather than simply adopting it
