′This is a highly competent collection of essays in social theory. In explaining, interpreting, criticizing, modifying Habermas, the authors make several original contributions to such central theoretical issues as the theory of modernity, lifeworld, the good life and justice, rationality – all of them in the spirit of post–metaphysical thinking.′ Agnes Heller
