In this important book, Jürgen Habermas takes up certainfundamental questions of philosophy. While much of his recent workhas been concerned with issues of morality and law, in this newwork Habermas returns to the traditional philosophical questions oftruth, objectivity and reality which were at the centre of hisearlier classic book Knowledge and Human Interests.

  • In this new work Habermas returns to the traditionalphilosophical questions of truth, objectivity and reality.
  • Habermas pursues these questions from the perspective of hisown formal pragmatic theory which is based on an analysis of speechacts and language use.
  • He asks: How can the idea that our world exists independentlyof our attempts to describe it be reconciled with the insight thatwe can never reach reality without the mediation of language?
  • Addresses the limits of philosophy and reassesses the relationbetween theory and practice from a ‘post-Marxist'perspective.
