Product Description

Review

′Seyla Benhabib′s voice is emerging as one of the most vital and important in contemporary social and political theory. In this collection of her recent articles, she articulates and defends a conception of interactive dialogical rationality and universalism that is sensitive to recent critiques by feminists, communitarians and postmodernists. She spans Continental and Anglo–American traditions and has a rare ability to write lucidly and forcefully about complex issues. Her critical discussions of Habermas, Arendt, MacIntyre, Lyotard (and many others) are always illuminating and provocative.′ Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research
