Jaeggi combines...phenomenological attention to lived experience and an eye for social detail... She binds that together with a shrewd grasp of critical theory and the philosophical landscape of the present. Her footnotes alone would make a good book.--Terry Pinkard "European Journal of Philosophy "
Jaeggi offers an interesting new attempt to fulfill the task Habermas has set for critical theory. She recommends accepting the plurality of life forms... Nevertheless we can still uphold a general ideal of emancipation and judge the different contributions of different life forms to a more rational world, if we consider the abilities of life forms to learn from crises and to transform themselves accordingly.--Andreas Niederberger and Tobias Weihrauch "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "
Jaeggi has already earned a firm place in German philosophy. This book reinforces the impression that she has established an important philosophical voice that addresses society and its problems and that we will hear from in the future, even beyond the academy.--Eva Weber-Guskar "Süddeutsche Zeitung "
