In this study, which places Habermas' work in the context of critical theory as a whole past and future, J.M. Bernstein argues that despite its undoubted achievements, it contributes to the very problems of ethical dislocation and meaninglessness it aims to diagnose and remedy.

Recovering Ethical Life Summary

Recovering Ethical Life: Jurgen Habermas and the Future of Critical Theory by Jay M. Bernstein

Reading across the whole range of Habermas' work, this book traces the development of the theory of communicative reason from its inception to its defence against postmodernism. Bernstein's analyses are always problem centred and thematic rather than textual, making this a major contribution to the critical literature on Habermas.
