"Jurgen Habermas is one of the most influential philosophers alive today. His writings interweave social, moral, political, and legal theory, to examine subjects ranging from Marxism to the European Union, and the role of communication and discourse in the modern world. James Gordon Finlayson shows how Habermas' theory as a whole answers important questions about the nature of modern society, and can shape our views on contemporary issues and events."--BOOK JACKET.
