Habermas, J├╝rgen. 1970. "Social Analysis and Communicative Competence" (387-9)

  1. Ideal speech situation
  2. Symmetries among parties to conversation
  3. Truth : everything subject to being "thematized"
  4. Freedom : mutuality of unimpaired self-representation
  5. Justice: complementary expectations
  6. Ideal speech situation (pure intersubjectivity) as ideal type (388.5)
  7. Communicative competence — mastery of capacities necessary for ideal speech situation (388.6)
  8. "One must be able to demonstrate the deformations of pure intersubjectivity which are induced by the social structure on the basis of asymmetries in the performance of dialogue rules" (388.7).
  9. How to use theory of communicative competence as a social theory (389.4). Treat ideal type of social action as one in which motives and meanings and intentions are openly communicated.
    • "The greater the share of prelinguistically fixed motivations which cannot be freely converted in public communication, the greater the deviance from the model of pure communicative action" (389.6)
