Germany’s leading postwar philosopher Jürgen Habermas offers a magisterial survey of the shadows cast by its history, sensitively distinguishing experiences east and west. He analyses its contemporary challenges, thus illuminated—especially the resurgence of far-right populism—in the evolving context of the Europe of today.

Co-edited by Social Europe Publishing and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) with the financial support of the European Parliament. Sole responsibility for its content rests with the author and the European Parliament and the parties are not responsible for any use that may be made of the information contained.

“Thirty years after the seismic shift in world history of 1989-90 with the collapse of communism, the sudden eruption of life-changing events could be another watershed. This will be decided in the next few months—in Brussels and in Berlin too. …” – Jürgen Habermas
