This important new volume brings together Habermas' key writing onreligion and religious belief. Habermas explores the relationsbetween Christian and Jewish thought, on the one hand, and theWestern philosophical tradition on the other. In so doing, heexamines a range of important figures, including Benjamin,Heidegger, Johann Baptist Metz and Gershom Scholem.

In a new introduction written especially for this volume, EduardoMendieta places Habermas' engagement with religion in the contextof his work as a whole. 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.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars intheology, religious studies and philosophy, as well as to all thosealready familiar with Habermas' work.
