  1. Philosophical Ethics Meets Technology: A Difficult State of Affairs.L. Levy - 1997 - Global Bioethics 10 (1-4):35-54.
    Technoscientific developments, especially those which operate on/with human beings, are contributing to their reconfiguration in some new, unprecedented ways. Ethics too is revising radically its own field, probing its own foundations. Sensitive to both movements, bioethics is at a difficult crossroads when much is demanded of it. This paper proposes to contribute to the elucidation of the role of philosophical ethics in the area of bioethics through a critical reading of three of our major contemporary philosophers who have been attempting (...)

    Habermas's theory of social evolution has been subjected to critique by environmentally motivated sociologists. They argue that his decision to recast social theory in terms of an extended, if selective analogy with biology leads him into a set of practical positions that are irreconcilable with Green politics and inconsistent with the goals of traditional critical theory. This article argues that these criticisms are based on an inaccurate assessment of the role of evolutionary concepts in Habermas's thought. By drawing out the (...)

  • Member of a School or Exponent of a Paradigm? Jürgen Habermas and Critical Theory.Stefan Müller-Doohm - 2017 - European Journal of Social Theory 20 (2):252-274.
    The label ‘Frankfurt School’ became popular in the ‘positivism dispute’ in the mid-1960s, but this article shows that it is wrong to describe Jürgen Habermas as representing a ‘second generation’ of exponents of critical theory. His communication theory of society is intended not as a transformation of, but as an alternative to, the older tradition of thought represented by Adorno and Horkheimer. The novel and innovative character of Habermas’s approach is demonstrated in relation to three thematic complexes: the public sphere (...)

  • The Frequency and Discourse Features of the Public Metonym.Peter A. Cramer - 2008 - Critical Discourse Studies 5 (3):265-280.
    This study is a corpus analysis of nominal uses of ‘public’ as a reference to a group of humans, a category of reference that has animated the debate over membership in the body public among theorists of publicity and deliberative democracy. The study finds that the public metonym is the most common nominal use of ‘public’ as a reference to a group of humans in ordinary English. In addition, it presents a fine-grained analysis of the discourse features of the public (...)

  • Marcuse or Habermas: Two Critiques of Technology.Andrew Feenberg - 1996 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 39 (1):45 – 70.
    The debate between Marcuse and Habermas over technology marked a significant turning point in the history of the Frankfurt School. After the 1960s Habermas's influence grew as Marcuse's declined and Critical Theory adopted a far less Utopian stance. Recently there has been a revival of quite radical technology criticism in the environmental movement and under the influence of Foucault and constructivism. This article takes a new look at the earlier debate from the standpoint of these recent developments. While much of (...)

  • Sustainable Development: Lost Meaning and Opportunity?A. H. T. Fergus & J. I. A. Rowney - 2005 - Journal of Business Ethics 60 (1):17-27.
    The term Sustainable Development has been used in many different contexts and consequently has come to represent many different ideas. The purpose of this paper was to explore the underlying meaning of the term Sustainable Development, and to assess the dominant ethic behind such meaning. Through this exploration, we uncovered a change in the semantic meaning of the term, and described what that meaning entails. The term Sustainable Development had the potential, we argue, to stimulate discursive engagement with respect to (...)

  • Morality and Cooperation.Michiel Korthals - 1992 - Journal of Moral Education 21 (1):17-27.
    Abstract Piaget's early theory on moral development and moral education can elucidate some important points in the discussion about a broad or narrow definition of morality and its consequences for educational practice. In the first place, Piaget introduces a concept of morality which transcends the partly misleading dichotomy between broad and narrow morality. Secondly, he conceptualizes the educational relationship as a development of two stages and evades the unfruitful dichotomy between liberal education and transmission of traditions. In this regard, his (...)

  • Habermas and the Force of Dialectical Argument.Mary Hesse - 1995 - History of European Ideas 21 (3):367-378.
    In his theory of rational discourse, Habermas has made essential use of the concept of 'force of the better argument'. He does not explicitly discuss the theories of meaning and of inference that must underpin this concept, but usually construes it in terms of univocal meaning and propositional inference. These assumptions are challenged by means of examples from the use of metaphor and analogical argument in science, and it is suggested that a generalisation of such arguments applies to philosophical discourse (...)
