  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 (...)

  • Bullshit, Social Integration, and Political Legitimation: Habermasian Reflections: Dialogue.David A. Borman - 2011 - Dialogue 50 (1):117-140.
    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a Habermasian analysis of bullshit which diverges from the well-known account offered by Harry Frankfurt. It aims to show that Habermas’s theory of communicative action provides superior conceptual tools for such an analysis, but also that the phenomenon of bullshit ought to be deeply troubling to Habermasians. Bullshit frustrates the transition to discourse, interrupts the binding force of communicative action and, if sufficiently widespread as to alter fundamental attitudes toward public speech, bullshit challenges the status of (...)

  • Habermas and Occidental Rationalism: The Politics of Identity, Social Learning, and the Cultural Limits of Moral Universalism.Gerard Delanty - 1997 - Sociological Theory 15 (1):30-59.
    While Habermas's theory of communicative action is deeply critical of all kinds of ethnocentrism, proposing a discursive concept of universal morality which transcends culture, a residual Eurocentrism still pervades it. Habermas's theory rests on a notion of modernity which is tied to Occidental rationalism, and when viewed in the global context or in the context of deeply divided societies it is problematic. The theory fails to grasp that universal morality can be articulated in more than one cultural form and in (...)

  • Evolution or Progress? A (Critical) Defence of Habermas's Theory of Social Development.Graeme Kirkpatrick - 2002 - Thesis Eleven 72 (1):91-112.
    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 (...)

  • Habermas, Islam, and Theorizing the “Other”.Matt Sheedy - 2018 - Critical Research on Religion 6 (3):331-350.
    Over the last twenty years, Jürgen Habermas has been at the forefront of debates involving religion in the public sphere. In the wake of 9/11 he has responded to the problems of terrorism, “radical Islam,” and the so-called Muslim question in Europe, attempting to align these issue with his broader theories of deliberative democracy and postsecularism. Although Habermas aims for an inclusive model of deliberation in the public sphere, I argue that his reliance on macro theories of secularization and modernization (...)

    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 (...)

  • 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 (...)
