Mendieta also discusses Habermas' writingsin relation to Jewish Messianism and the Frankfurt School, showinghow the essays in Religion and Rationality, one of which istranslated into English for the first time, foreground animportant, yet often neglected, dimension of critical theory. Thevolume concludes with an original extended interview, also inEnglish for the first time, in which Habermas develops his currentviews on religion in modern society.
