Reproduction/Habermas: material reproduction takes place through the medium of purposive action with which the socialized individuals intervene in the world to realize their goals.
Weber: the problems that the actor has to overcome in the respective situation disintegrate into problems of "inner" and "outer need".
Habermas: from the perspective of the actor the processes correspond from the perspective of the preservation of the environment to
the symbolic and material reproduction.
Cultural reproduction of the lifeworld: ensures that new situations occurring in the semantic dimension are connected to existing world states: it ensures the continuity of tradition and a sufficient coherence of knowledge for everyday practice, continuity and coherence are measured by the rationality of knowledge accepted as valid.
Disturbances of cultural reproduction manifest themselves in a loss of meaning and lead to crises of legitimacy and orientation. In such cases, the actors can no longer cover their need for understanding from their inventory of cultural knowledge._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
