В этой книге Макс Пенский рассматривает необходимость переосмысления человеческой солидарности в контексте теории дискурса Юргена Хабермаса. Автор отмечает необходимость ре-сакрализации этого социального феномена, в определённой мере исторически дискредитированного левыми социальными движениями прошлого. Мах Пенский указывает на востребованность нового модуса солидарности, проявляющуюся в ходе развития интеграционных процессов в Европейском Союзе и роста динамики иммиграционных процессов в инклюзивных демократических обществах.

Max Pensky is Professor of Philosophy at Binghamton University, State University of New York.
He is the author of Melancholy Dialectics: Walter Benjamin and the Play of Mourning; editor of The
Actuality of Adorno: Critical Essays on Adorno and the Postmodern, also published by SUNY Press;
and translator and editor of Habermas’s The Past as Future: Vergangenheit als Zukunft.

In "The Ends of Solidarity: Discourse Theory in Ethics and Politics" extremely well written and well argued Pensky creatively weaves together several strands in contemporary social theory, ethics, and politics.

Jürgen Habermas’s discourse theory demands that human beings see themselves in relations of
solidarity that cross national, racial, and religious divides. While his theory has won adherents
across a spectrum of contemporary debates, the required vision of solidarity has remained largely
unexplored. In The Ends of Solidarity, Max Pensky fills this void by examining Habermas’s theory
of solidarity, while also providing a comprehensive introduction to the German philosopher’s work.
Pensky explores the impact of Habermasian discourse theory on a range of contemporary debates
in politics and ethics, including the prospect of a cosmopolitan democracy across national borders;
the solidarity demanded by the integration process in the European Union; the demands that
immigration dynamics make on inclusive democratic societies; the divisive or unifying effects of
religion in Western democracies; and the current controversies in genetic technology.
