Habermas III 62
Validity/Toulmin/HabermasVsToulmin/Habermas: Toulmin does not clearly separate conventional claims of validity that depend on contexts of action from universal claims of validity. His examples show this: e. g. determination of sports results, causes of an infection, reasons for entrepreneurial decisions, justification of access rights, recommendations for action, aesthetic judgements.
III 63
Habermas: only the context determines the type of claim to validity. Example:
A botanical classification is about the truth of a proposition. In contrast, the teaching of the same division by a teacher is about the claim to the comprehensibility of a semantic rule.
