Habermas on Foucault. Critical remarks
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The relation between the œuvres of Jurgen Habermas and Michel Foucault constitutes an important reference point to several aspects of contemporary social research and philosophical discussion. In this paper I give an account of Habermas's critique of Foucault, a critique which operates on three levels-methodology, empirical descriptions, and political implications. I also make some commentaries on the critique, where I propose that Habermas and Foucault work within different ensembles of theories, concepts and discourses. This means, consequently, that on several occasions Habermas's critique is confusing and misses the point.
