Here for the first time are Habermas's most important writings on society, the state, and social theory collected in one volume. For more than three decades Habermas has consistently attempted to supply foundations for a reconstructed Marxist social theory that provides a critical analysis of modernity. He has defended the position that only if a general notion of reason can be invoked can we hope to sustain a democratic social order. This carefully edited volume includes selections from Habermas's earliest works through his most recent: essays on the aim of social science, the structure of a theory of action and society, the development of modern society, psychoanalysis, and the crisis of the welfare state.

Jurgen Habermas is a German sociologist who studied at the universities of Gottingen, Zurich, and Bonn. He taught at Frankfurt am Main, Marburg, and Heidelberg before becoming professor of philosophy at the University of Frankfurt. His works, widely translated, have made him one of the most influential social theorists of our time. Habermas is considered by some to be an intellectual heir to Max Weber and what has been called the Frankfurt School. His work has centered mainly on the role of communication and technology in changing patterns of social relations, human activity, and values. An outspoken advocate of the Enlightenment and a champion of reason, he has also cautioned that the technical rationality associated with modern capitalism often functions as ideology and may stand in the way of human progress.
