Clara marked it as to-read Sep 19, Funda marked it as to-read Jul 22, And while this is welcome and persuasive as a critique of Habermas, I think scholarship regarding Mead and Dewey in the 26 years since Benhabib’s book shows that the concrete other was very much a part of their own critical theories of democracy.
That is, I think Adorno might critkque something a bit more to say in retort to her critique that he is still operating under utoipa pretensions of ‘the philosophy of the subject’ especially in light of the dialectical unpacking of the art object and its potential in Aesthetic Theory. The positive recommendations she argues for in extending critical theory are well-founded. Tina marked it as to-read Jun 25, Muhammad Alfan marked it as to-read Jan 09, But this is just to say that Benhabib has allies in Mead and Dewey with regard to achieving a situtation where the ‘negation of the existent in the name of a future that bursts open the possibilities of the present’.

Sandra rated it it was amazing Jun 22, Where Benhabib accuses Habermas of falling back into the same kinds of problems of his predecessors when he must use philoso Benhabib is an exceptionally clear thinker, and here she takes us through the frustrating terrain of the normativity of critical social theory.
Todd rated it liked it May 15, Where Benhabib accuses Habermas of falling back into the same kinds of problems of his predecessors when he must use philosophically historical narratives to privilege his universal pragmatics over other contemporary post-traditional approaches.
