|Habermas IV 198
Environment/Schütz/Habermas: Schütz has an ambivalent approach to the concept of the lifeworld a) on the one hand he pushes it aside under the influence of American pragmatism, especially Meads, and b) on the other hand he does not turn to a communication-theoretical approach, but stands by Husserl's intuitive method (...) and sees his own company in this context as a regional ontology of society. ((s) See also in another context: anti-individualism, externalism, internalism).
Lifeworld/Schütz/Luckmann: three moments; a) naive familiarity with a background given without problems (see Background/Habermas), b) validity of an intersubjectively divided world, c) a total and indefinite, porous and limiting character of this life-world. (1)
Situations/Husserl/Schütz: change, but the limits of life cannot be transcended. The lifeworld forms the environment in which situation horizons shift, expand or narrow. It forms a context which, itself unlimited, draws limits.
