Author Concept Summary/Quotes Sources

Ian C. Jarvie on World - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 115
World/Rationality/Jarvie/Habermas: Jarvie makes an interesting use of Popper's theory of the three worlds (Popper: World 1: physical objects, World 2: states of consciousness, World 3: objective thought content).
Habermas III 120
Jarvie/Habermas: by adopting Popper's concept of the third world for the characterization of social relationships and institutions, Jarvie Popper has to introduce the socially active subjects following the example of theoretical and problem-solving scientists. The members of society are constantly learning something about them.(1)
Jarvie: they create maps that are in some way "softer" than geographical maps.
Habermas III 121
These social maps are landscapes that other people have to study and map.(2)
HabermasVsJarvie: a) Jarvie blurs the difference between a performative and a hypothetical-reflexive attitude towards cultural traditions.
b) He neglects the elements of cultural tradition that cannot be attributed to "thoughts" or truthful statements. He restricts the objective contexts of meaning that the acting subjects create and discover at the same time to the cognitive patterns of interpretation in the narrower sense.
Habermas III 122
c) His proposal does not allow any distinction to be made between cultural values and the institutional embodiment of values in norms. This does not explain the coercive nature of existing standards and institutions.
