Communicative Practice/Habermas: thesis: the social-integrative and expressive functions, which are initially fulfilled by ritual practice (see Holiness/Durkheim), are transferred to communicative action, whereby the authority of the holy is successively replaced by the authority of a consensus that is considered justified in each case. This means a release of communicative action from sacral protected normative contexts.
The disenchantment and empowerment of the sacred realm is carried out by way of a linguization of the ritually secured normative basic understanding._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
