Jürgen Habermas on Structural Violence - Dictionary of Arguments
Structural Violence/Habermas: Reproductive constraints that instrumentalize a lifeworld without impairing the appearance of self-sufficiency in the lifeworld, must hide in the pores of communicative action. This results in a structural violence that, without becoming manifest as such, takes over the form of inter-subjectivity of possible understanding. Structural violence is exercised through a systematic restriction of communication; it is anchored in the formal conditions of communicative action in such a way that the connection between objective, social and subjective world is typically prejudiced for the communication participants. For this relative a priori of understanding I would like to introduce the concept of the form of communication in analogy to the a priori of knowledge of the form of object (Lukács)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
