John Milbank's critique of Habermas and Kant

In "Avello Publishing Journal" (vol. 2 no. 1), Professor John Milbank has a critical article on Jürgen Habermas:

"What Lacks is Feeling: Hume versus Habermas and Kant"

The article is based on a paper, presented at a symposium in New York City in October 2009 on Habermas's view on post-

metaphysical thinking and religion. Habermas's comments on John Milbank's paper are published in his book "Nachmetaphysisches Denken II" (Suhrkamp Verlag, 2012) pp. 176-178.

John Milbank is Professor of Religion, Politics and Ethics at the University of Nottingham, and he is Director of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy.
