The Inclusion of the Other (German: Die Einbeziehung des Anderen. Studien zur politischen Theorie) is 1996 book by German philosopher Jürgen Habermas.

Summary[edit]

The Inclusion of the Other is a collection of essays, in which Habermas expands on the ideas on law and democracy first articulated in his Between Facts and Norms (1992). Major topics include the future of the nation-state, human rights, and deliberative democracy. Also in the collection are two essays Habermas wrote in a series with American political philosopher John Rawls on public reason and the overlapping consensus. Rawls's response is included both with his Collected Papers and the current edition of Political Liberalism (1993).
