Emilio Marti, Organization Studies As a whole, Forst's book suggests an answer to the question of how organization scholars as social scientists can engage with normative ideas. In particular, Forst's book helps clarify two questions: first, how organizational scholars can make a distinct contribution to societal deliberation on normative ideas; and second, why research on normative ideas can only ever play a supporting role for societal deliberation on normative ideas.

Allen Buchanan, James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy, Duke University, and Professor of the Philosophy of International Law, King's College, London Rainer Forst is the most systematic, methodologically self-conscious moral and political philosopher writing today. In this volume he manages to do something no one else could do: fruitfully connect metaethical constructivism and critical theory, through a probing exploration of the reciprocal relations between social power and normativity.

Arthur Ripstein , Professor of Law and Philosophy, University of Toronto Rainer Forst's account of the right to justification has positioned him as a central figure in political philosophy. In this new book, Forst engages with other political ideas that are often thought to compete with his vision of humans as fundamentally justificatory beings, integrating the right to justification with issues of exploitation, power, cultural narrative, and progress. Everyone interested in any of these issues will want to read this book.

Michael Rosen, Department of government, Harvard University Rainer Forst is one of the most illuminating political philosophers now working. His writing carries forward the systematic project of the Frankfurt School with an admirable combination of analytical rigor and historical depth. At a time when liberal democracy has come to seem troublingly fragile, it is salutary to have this clear-eyed and uncompromising defense of its ideal of inclusive justification.

Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research Rainer Forst develops a powerful version of critical theory that spans philosophy, social theory, and critique where the principle of general and reciprocal justification is fundamental. Justification is not merely a theoretical question; it is a political and practical question. Such a theory must be attentive to complex historical ways in which human beings actually justify practices as well as the way in which practices themselves are always open to criticism by an appeal to rational justification. In developing his theory, he shows how it can account for power, justice, and democracy... He is imaginative, bold, and always thought provoking.

Melissa Williams, Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto Forst's characteristically brilliant and lucid essays demonstrate the potency of his signature ideathe right to justificationto perform a defining task of political philosophy: the critical analysis of social and political ...
