About the Author:

Cristina Lafont is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University. She is the author of Heidegger, Language, and World-Disclosure.

Review:

" Lafont's scholarship is consistently first-rate. She provides a superb reconstruction of the development of Habermas's views of language, perhaps the most difficult part of his philosophical theory. She also proposes a novel reading of the connections between Habermas and the tradition, contextualizing him in a very interesting way. Finally, Lafont handles texts in the analytic and continental traditions with equal clarity." -- Pablo De Greiff, Department of Philosophy, SUNY Buffalo
