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.
