Double Dialectics uses a dialectical method of reading to show the resonance between Enlightenment and postmodern speculations about the nature of knowledge and ethics. Further, it offers a possible answer to the question of which Enlightenment values are worth preserving. The book argues that Enlightenment philosophy has something to add to the contemporary thinking that appears to subvert it. Rather than reading this philosophy as an observance of a single dialectical process that eliminates all sources of doubt, Double Dialectics shows that different kinds of Enlightenment discourse chart a nuanced path that mediates between relativism and objectivism, offering creative avenues of thought for contemporary ethical and epistemological problems
