The Invention of a Paradigm
The Normative Conceptions of the Lifeworld in Habermas
Abstract This article aims at elucidating Habermas’ critique of the phenomenological method while clarifying his own conception of the Lifeworld as a normative, homogenic comprehension of the process of subject constitution and language. In order to do so, a review of the Husserlian understanding of the Lifeworld in the Crisis, as well as the later steps for a provisional, generative conception of Lifeworld will be provided, along with an attempt to recast the debate between the sociological and hermeneutic appropriation of the Lifeworld in Alfred Schutz which motivate Habermas to turn away from a phenomenological perspective. The article closes with elements for a phenomenological critique of Habermas’ concept of the Lifeworld.
