Passages? How about books. The two most obvious, it seems to me, are Knowledge 
and Human Interests and On the Logic of the Social Sciences. Both are older so 
I'd also recommend Postmetaphysical Thinking, esp. the essays "The horizon of 
modernity is shifting" and "Themes in postmetaphysical thinking."
