|Appearance, Philosophy: Apart from logical insights we receive all our insights through our senses. Therefore, it is believed that this knowledge is not only fundamentally fallible, but is more or less pre-structured by the nature of the sense organs. This structure is not necessarily so in the world outside the perceiving subjects. Because of the linguistic prestructuring of our approach to ourselves the inner life of the subjects is also not unfailingly recognizable.

Appearance/Enlightenment/Habermas: according to the rational utopia of the Age of Enlightenment (1), the subject of private law, which merges into the functional contexts of material reproduction, was just as easy to identify with the human formed, which realizes itself in the private sphere, as with the private individual, who forms the audience of citizens in public with others.
Habermas: Of course, this ideology was never a mere appearance, but rather an objective appearance that emerged from the structures of differentiated, certainly layer-specific limited, but rationalized lifeworlds themselves. The result is the appearance of post-traditional everyday communication that stands on its own two feet, which sets limits to the momentum of independent subsystems, which bursts open encapsulated expert cultures and thus escapes the (...) dangers of reification and desertification.
