'Seyla Benhabib's voice is emerging as one of the most vital and important in contemporary social and political theory. In this collection of her recent articles, she articulates and defends a conception of interactive dialogical rationality and universalism that is sensitive to recent critiques by feminists, communitarians and postmodernists. She spans Continental and Anglo-American traditions and has a rare ability to write lucidly and forcefully about complex issues. Her critical discussions of Habermas, Arendt, MacIntyre, Lyotard (and many others) are always illuminating and provocative.'
