Jürgen Habermas on Background - Dictionary of Arguments

IV 191
Background/Habermas: is a knowledge inventory of unproblematic beliefs that are shared and assumed to be guaranteed, from which the context of communication processes forms, in which the participants use proven situation definitions or negotiate new ones.

>Communicative rationality/Habermas.
The participants of communication find the connection between objective, social and subjective world, which they are facing, already interpreted in terms of content. If they overwrite the horizon of a given situation, they could not step into the void; they immediately find themselves in another, now updated, but preinterpreted area of the culturally self-evident. New situations also emerge from a lifeworld built on an ever-trusted inventory of cultural knowledge. The actors cannot take an extramundane position in relation to this lifeworld, just as they cannot take an extramundane position in relation to language as the medium of the processes of communication through which the lifeworld is maintained.
