Resources for Habermasian philosophical interests
Habermas studies project

This supplements my Habermas studies project:




  • Habermas and “our evolving” blog
    This page about the blog relates it to Habermasian interests. The blog, begun in 2010, inherited postings from other blogs prior to 2010, then explores how to work beyond his work while staying accurately appreciative of his ongoing work.

  • Yahoo! Group: 2002-2014 (more or less)
    There are presently hundreds of substantive postings, but access requires membership (free, but a Yahoo! “account” is needed), unfortunately. That was not the case until recently. Anyone could read postings, while member email addresses were hidden. So, to members: The grid of postings by month and year isn’t very helpful (no posting titles; just number of postings per month). I have a comprehensive thematization (cataloging) that I developed for my own postings (not that I’m self possessed or obsessive; it was a fun experiment in thematization). I don’t know what to do with all of that: posting, thematization—something for later years, maybe. To non-members: The group was very active, 2004—2010-or-so; then became largely postings by me, 2010—2014.

    Inaccessibility of postings to non-members is regrettable for me, because I have many tens (hundreds?) of discussions and responses that I thoughtfully did. I suggest that my Google Groups Habermas address would an excellent alternative to develop.

    But the Messages are available by number! (“Conversations” ⇒ “Messages”) One can link to specific messages. (For example, “Discourse Theory and International Law.”) So, useful material can be brought into discussions elsewhere (between members) or transferred out.

  • Spoon Collective “Habermas” archives: 1996-2004
    Amid all the ephemera, there are discursive gems here. I have much to say about that, too, also in terms of the thematization (Aug. 1997 through 2004). My “Habermas and Truth” series is based on long discussions there, end of September, 2003, through the beginning of October, 2003. Here, by the way, is a short history of the Spoon Collective, which was a pioneering project in the early days of the Internet.


There is so much life in the blogosphere! But what’s directly relevant to understanding Habermas philosophically? I look forward to sharing what I can. (That’s what the Facebook Page is for.) But I’m very involved with work after Habermas. I would gladly get into scholarly discussion of Habermas’s work, if others who are intensively involved would like that. Let me know.
