- Chapter 5: Narrative Cultural Interweavings: Between Facts and Fiction Link checked August 6, 2002. Backup."This essay investigates the new meaning of human capabilities that can be drawn out of the feminist model. Drawing on a further elaboration of narratives and the dynamics established between the public sphere and the new emergent publics, I explain how such moral narratives constitute the symbolic order in three stages of 'mimetic representation' (Ricoeur)."

- Moral Textures: feminist narratives in the public sphere. Polity Cambridge 1998. Stephan Meyer. Backup. Link checked August 6, 2002."Maria Pia Lara's Moral Textures: feminist narratives in the public sphere is a long overdue and thus most welcome study which bridges the gap between insights drawn largely from Jürgen Habermas' intersubjectivist theory of rationality and action in the public sphere to literary and cultural studies which are not fixated on the isolated text. Noises in that direction have been made before, but Lara's study is the most extensive to date. Precursors in this line have been tentative remarks by literary theorists (1); or philosophers detecting a lurking interest in the aesthetic in Habermas' writing in the mid eighties (2) and more lately feminist theorists who identify the potential derived from linking the good and the right, private and public, culture and society (3)."
