Editorial Reviews
Book Description 
In this collection Jürgen Habermas engages with a wide range of
twentieth-century thinkers. The essays display Habermas's appreciation for
various intellectual traditions, his ability to distill the essence of other
authors' work, and his outstanding critical powers.

Habermas has described these essays as "fragments of a history of
contemporary philosophy." They include explorations of the work of Ernst
Cassirer, Karl Jaspers, and Gershom Scholem, as well as responses to friends
and colleagues such as Karl-Otto Apel, writer and filmmaker Alexander Kluge,
and Michael Thuenissen. The book also includes pieces on the theologian
Johann Baptist Metz and the Finnish philosopher Georg Henrik von Wright.
