Publication Date 1990
Description These lectures constitute Jürgen Habermas's response to the challenge posed by the radical critique of reason in contemporary French poststructuralism. In tracing the historical turnings that led to our current situation, Habermas tests his ideas about the appropriate form of a postmodern discourse through dialogues with a broad range of past and present critics and theorists. The lectures on Georges Bataille, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, and Cornelius Castoriadis are of particular note, since they are the first fruits of the recent cross-fertilization between French and German thought.
