Habermas, modernity, and law
The work of Jürgen Habermas has long been regarded as central to the development of social and political theory and philosophy in the late twentieth century. With the publication of his latest book Between Facts and Norms, Habermas signalled the importance of exploring modern legal theory to our understanding of democratic society.
The contributors to Habermas, Modernity and Law provide a clear introduction to this key development in Habermas's work. With chapters ranging from the possibility of valid law to discourse ethics and human rights, they successfully integrate a broad range of Habermas's writings with his recent thoughts on the place of the law in contemporary theory. Habermas himself contributes a postscript to Between Facts and Norms, providing a fascinating overview of his current thinking. Habermas, Modernity and Law is also published as Volume 20 Issue 4 of Philosophy & Social Criticism.
