ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the article entitled "Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere," by Jurgen Habermas. It explores the discovery of Habermas on the ideal of the bourgeois public sphere (BPS) within the context of English political discourse during the 18th-century. It mentions that Habermas recognized the rational debate of the English BPS, which was structured by a discursive tension between the government of Robert Walpole and Lord Bolingbroke.
