About

»There is no alternative to post-metaphysical thinking.« This statement, made by Jürgen Habermas in his 1988 collection of essays, Post-Metaphysical Thinking, is still valid today.

Jürgen Habermas continues to develop his philosophical ideas in this second collection of previously unpublished essays.

The first section of the book deals with the shift in perspective from metaphysical worldviews to the phenomenal world. In the second section, the uneasy relationship between religion and post-metaphysical thinking takes centre stage. Habermas picks up where he left off in 1988, when he made the perspicacious observation that »even in its post-metaphysical form, philosophy can neither replace nor suppress religion«, in order to examine philosophy’s newfound interest in religion. The final section comprises essays on the role of religion on the political context of a post-secular, liberal society.
