Description / Abstract

Richard Bernstein is Vera List Professor for Philosophy at the New School for Social Research (New York) and one of the most distinguished scholars in philosophical pragmatism. Characteristic for his work is an enormous intellectual breadth. Bernstein is well known for his mastery in bringing authors and topics from different intellectual traditions together and make them speak to each other. In sociology he is probably best known for his contributions to the theory of action and the philosophical self-reflection of the Social Sciences in Praxis and Action (1971), The Restructuring of Social and Political Theory (1978) and Beyond Objectivism and Relativism (1983). However, in his recent work Bernstein, while still interested in a wide array of topics, seems to have broken off the debate with the social sciences. At the end of a masterclass Bernstein taught in Munich, Fabian Anicker had a chance to ask him about this impression.
