Karl-Otto Apel on Experience - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 452
Experience/World/Apel/Gadamer: GadamerVsReflection Philosophy: The consciousness of conditionality does not in any way cancel out the conditionality itself. It is one of the prejudices of reflection philosophy that it understands as a relationship of sentences, which is not at all on the same logical level.
Apel: So the reflection argument is out of place here. For it is not at all a matter of relations of judgements that are to be kept free of contradictions, but of living conditions. The linguistic constitution of our experience of the world is capable of encompassing the most diverse living conditions(1).

1. K. -O. Apel, Der philosophische Wahrheitsbegriff einer inhaltlich orientierten Sprachwissenschaft, Festschrift für Weisgerber, S. 25 f. (Now in: K.-O. Apel, Transformation der Philosophie, 2 vol. Frankfurt 1973, there vol. 1, p. 106—137) shows correctly that someone's talking about oneself is by no means to be understood as an objectively fixed assertion of an essence, so that a refutation of such statements by demonstrating their logical reflexivity and contradictoriness is meaningless.
