About this book
Critical theory. As a whole, this book is intended to be a dialogue between Habermas and Korean social scientists to jointly explore whether Habermas' critical theory can be extened further into the non-Western context of development, paricularly the Korean case. Conscrete programs of critical theory may be better formulated today in rapidly democratizing industrial societies like South Korea than the Western countries.
