Jurgen Habermas continues to be one of the most important and influential thinkers today. The essays are written in critcal solidarity and sympathy with Habermas' work and address two broad areasin it that have left their long and indelibile legacies for social and critical theroy today. The first area pertains to the way in which Habermas distinguishes three domains of rationality under the umbrella of communicative reason, which pertians to norms, aesthetics and relagion, and nature. The second set og engagements and critcisims arise from the first, that is, the status of the linguistic turn in critical theory, and by implication the legacy of the status of the subject that this turn bequeaths. The essays also point to different and often competing theoretical and philosophical developments within and outside German critical theory.
