    Jürgen Habermas' s Writings on Europe.Vivienne Boon - 2007 - Ethical Perspectives 14 (3):287-310.
    This article explores Habermas’s recent political writings in which he proposes a thin post-national model of political integration for Europe. Whilst sympathetic to Habermas’s undertakings, this article argues that there are certain unresolved tensions within these writings between his thin proceduralist model of European integration and his appeals to a thicker European self-understanding. The conclusion to be drawn from this, the author argues, is that Habermas should have remained faithful to his thin proceduralist account rather than turning to the question (...)

    Jürgen Habermas and Islamic Fundamentalism: On the Limits of Discourse Ethics.Vivienne Boon - 2010 - Journal of Global Ethics 6 (2):153-166.

    Critical Theory and the Language of Violence: Exploring the Issues.Naomi Head & Vivienne Boon - 2010 - Journal of Global Ethics 6 (2):79-87.
    In this article we, the authors, outline the thematic concerns of our special issue of the Journal of Global Ethics . We argue for a need to engage with notions of violence from an interdisciplinary and transformative perspective. The theoretical framework that provides such a perspective is critical theory, broadly construed. Critical theory has always been concerned with the relation between practice and theory, as well as notions of violence. It is therefore surprising to note that in the current critical (...)
