Resources for Habermasian philosophical interests
Habermas studies project

This supplements my Habermas studies project. Text below is the same as the April 2019 page, except that I’ve added The Cambridge Habermas Lexicon.




  • 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 posting requires membership (free access to postings, but a Yahoo! “account” is needed for posting), unfortunately. That was not the case originally. Anyone could post,
    while member email addresses were hidden. The grid of postings by month and year isn’t very helpful (no posting titles; just number of postings per month). The group was very active, 2004—2010-or-so; then became largely postings by me, 2010—2014.

    I suggest that my Google Groups Habermas address would an excellent alternative to develop because the formatting options are better, and postings can be edited after posting.

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

  • Spoon Collective “Habermas” archives: 1996-2004
    Amid all the ephemera there, gems of extended exchanges can be found. I have much to say about that. (My participation began Aug. 1997 through list closure by the list owner in 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 more sharing. 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.
