The last part of Honneth's tour de force is about the ‘us' of democratic will-formation. This part of the book consists again of three parts. In the first section, Honneth reconstructs the transformations of the public sphere in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He then traces the public sphere's relation to the democratic constitutional nation-state and analyses the influence of processes of globalisation and Europeanization on the possibility of ‘public will-formation'. In a third section on political culture, Honneth summarises the intentions and conclusions of the first two sections. I'll concentrate on what Honneth has to say about the relation between democracy and globalisation.
