Paul marked it as to-read Mar 10, That is, as we see in such works as Dewey’s The Public and Its Problems, ‘solidarity’, ‘friendship’, ‘need’ and the ‘concrete other’ are very much present alongside a demystifying critique of the colonization of the lifeworld by ‘instrumental reason’ in Weber’s sense.
