CPOL-4510 Social Theory and Habermas’s Politics

The purpose of the course is for students to learn more about Habermas’s political and social philosophy. This author presents a way of thinking where historical development is interpreted as a process of technical rationalization that reaches its peak in the domination of the administered society over the world of life. Habermas’s conception of society and politics is based on a critique of functionalist and instrumental reasoning and on the need to recover dialectical reason and discourse ethics.
