Summary "The relationship between civil society and public life has become a major topic of discussion in many disciplines, and no single scholarly voice informs this discussion more that that of Jürgen Habermas. His contributions have shaped the nature of debates over critical theory, feminism, cultural studies, and democratic politics. In this book, scholars from a wide range of disciplines respond to Habermas's most directly relevant work, 'The structural transformation of the public sphere'. Ranging from political theory to cultural criticism, from ethics to gender studies, from history to media studies, these essays challenge, refine, and extend our understanding of the social foundations and changing character of democracy and public discourse."--Back cover.
