Quora answer: What’s so great about Jürgen Habermas’s philosophy?

May 22 2014

I do not think Habermas’ philosophy is all that great so it is pretty hard for me to defend it. In fact I see no redeeming qualities in it at all which is unusual for me, because normally canonical philosophers are given the benefit of the doubt. All I can do is throw up my arms and say “What has Critical Theory come to? This?” Adorno, Benjamin and Horkheimer each have interesting things to say. I am not sure what happened to Habermas. I have never heard anything about his philosophy that is the least bit interesting. Even Analytical Philosophy holds more interest that does the philosophy of Habermas for me.
