Freedom is modernity's most important but also its most controversial promise. No other concept has led to so many expectations and disappointments, change and destruction. In this book Wolfgang Huber's concept communicative freedom is proposed as a contribution to the debate on freedom within modernity. It is argued that communicative freedom integrates radically different understandings of freedom into one comprehensive concept. This concept allows for a constructive and critical affirmation of modernity.
