Description

Having debated the basics of a General Action-Based Communication Theory (ABCT), we now turn to the most famous Philosophy of Communication of our times: Habermas’s Theory of Communicative Action (TCA) – with our main questions being: How are ABCT and TCA related to each other? Are they really, as supposed by Habermas’s “Communicative Actions are Actions sui generis”-Theorem, incompatible? Or are they ‘only’ following different theoretical (maybe individualistic vs. collectivistic) paradigms of approaching ‘more or less’ one and the same field? Arguably, to get reliable solutions out of these questions, a good deal of rational reconstruction of TCA will be needed.
