Utterances/Interpretation/action/observation/sociology/Habermas: If we ignore an actor's expressions as claims of validity, we neutralize the claims to truth and success by treating opinions and intentions as expressive utterances; and this could only be objectively judged in terms of truthfulness and authenticity.
If, on the other hand, we take the statements of the actor just as seriously as he means them rationally, we subject his (supposed) chances of success to criticism based on our knowledge._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
