Habermas is a Philosopher Speaking to All of Us

[For Jürgen Habermas, modern society is characterized by a bureaucratic democracy in which compromises are brokered without transparency. In response, the German philosopher has appealed for greater political participation in civil society. His work describes a “liberal public” and recalls a time when citizens used to meet in coffee houses to discuss how to influence their society.

His astute social diagnoses, such as in his book “The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere,” his public positions on controversial issues, and his contributions to analytical and political philosophy have made Habermas one of the most renowned contemporary intellectuals in the world.]
