This book is the first book-length deconstructive study of the
political philosophy of Jurgen Habermas. Inspired by the work of
Jacques Derrida, the book applies deconstruction to key issues in
Habermass work: rational discourse and rational consensus,
constitutional democracy, tolerance and civil disobedience.The war
in Iraq brought Habermas and Derrida together in defense of
international law and in favor of a bigger role for a united Europe
in international affairs. Yet, despite the rapprochement between
Habermas and Derrida in the years prior to Derridas death,
important differences remain between Habermass critical theory and
Derridas deconstruction. These differences reflect differences
between post-structuralism and critical theory and between
postmodernists and the defenders of modernity."
