Dear friends,

This is a reminder that the FSWG meets this evening (5:15pm in 4125a Dwinelle) to talk about two essays by Seyla Benhabib: “The Utopian Dimension in Communicative Ethics” –– an article adapted from her 1986 book on critical theory, Critique, Norm and Utopia –– and “Models of Public Space: Hannah Arendt, the Liberal Tradition, and Jürgen Habermas” from Situating the Self (1992). Hope to see you there!

yours,
