And while this is welcome and persuasive as a critique of Habermas, I think scholarship regarding Mead and Dewey in the 26 years since Benhabib’s book shows that the concrete other was very much a part of their own critical theories of democracy.
Maggie rated it it cirtique amazing Apr 30, Lara Fresko marked it as to-read Apr 13, That is, as we see in such works as Dewey’s The Public and Its Problems, ‘solidarity’, ‘friendship’, ‘need’ and the ‘concrete other’ are very much present alongside a demystifying critique of the colonization of the lifeworld by ‘instrumental reason’ in Weber’s sense.

Spencer McKay rated it liked it Sep 10, Funda marked it as to-read Jul 22, Gina Eom rated it really liked it Feb 27, Clara marked it as to-read Sep 19, The positive recommendations she argues for in extending critical theory are well-founded. I had this book on my shelf for years without reading it. Axel Honneth and Hans Joas in particular have shown this to be the case.
She has also worked with many important philosophers and scholars, including Herbert Marcuse. The criticisms she offers at each stage of the main theoretical appropriations I totally concur with Peter Gathje’s review.
