8vo - 23 x 15 cm.; xi - 296 pp. Burgundy cloth over boards with silver gilt lettering on the spine. A series of 11 distinct essays that explore the juncture of philosophy with political thought, modernity and post-modernism. The titles of the essays give an idea of the scope: "Farewell to Metaphysics: Nietzsche", "Phenomenology and Critique: Adorno", "Life-World and Communicative Action: Habermas", "Apel's Transformation of Philosophy", "Hermeneutics and Deconstruction: Gadamer and Derrida in Dialogue", "Tale of Two Cities: Ricoeurs' Political and Social Essays", "Pragmatism and Hermeneutics: Bernstein", "Virtue and Tradition: MacIntyre", "Dialogue and Otherness: Theunissen", "Structuration and Agency: Giddens", "System, State and Polis: Luhmann". Thirty three pages of notes along with an eight page general index at the back. Previous owner's address label on the front free end paper, otherwise the book appers to have never been used. The unclipped dust jacket shows some very minor wear to the top edge.
