Abstract

The author makes the argument that "public spheres" do not exist and demonstrates how Habermas's communicative actions, specifically Habermas's concepts of universal pragmatics and the ideal speech situation, can be reconstructed in private spheres to formulate a more viable philosophical methodology for validating truth, constructing self-identities, and sustaining the social.
