On the negative side, it is very easy to be caugth up in excitement about the perspectives and scope of Habermas' work. But there is a huge gap between the philosofical discussions presented, and the problems of how to.. Don't expect this to be an educational manual. However, having read a considerable amount of Habermas litterature, this was hardly any surprise. Furthermore most of Habermas' work on education was written during or immediately after the student revolts in the 60's. This is a problem, which I fell the author doesn't pay enough attention to in this book. Allthough Habermas is a firm believer in non-violence, the radicalism of his writing shows. This should be taken into consideration, when one reads this book. Radicalism may not be the most promising way to look at our childrens future.
