Habermas: A Guide for the Perplexed is the ideal starting point for anyone studying Jurgen Habermas, one of the most important contemporary philosophers in society, and an invaluable companion text to any course of study that includes his work. It follows Habermas's critical and philosophical project through all four stages of its development - the philosophical anthropological; the historical materialist; the linguistic turn; deliberative democracy and the rule of law building a complete overview of his work, and offering close and incisive analysis throughout. All Habermas's major publications, including The Theory of Communicative Action, are covered in detail.
