The Theory of Communicative Action: Volume 2: Lifeword and System: A Critique of Functionalist Reason Paperback - 1985

by Juergen Habermas; Thomas McCarthy (Translator)

From the publisher

Jürgen Habermas (born June 18, 1929) is a German sociologist and philosopher in the tradition of critical theory and pragmatism.

From the rear cover

Jurgen Habermas opens volume 2 with a brilliant reinterpretation of Mead and Durkheim and then develops his own approach to society, combining two hitherto competing paradigms, 'system' and 'lifeworld.' The strength of this combination is then demonstrated in a detailed critique of Parsons's theory of social systems.
