Habermas on Foucault. Critical remarks

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

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.
