J��rgen Habermas on I, Ego, Self - Dictionary of Arguments
I/Habermas: For categorization as a person, it is not enough that a person can say "I", but how they do it. The expression "I" not only has the deictic meaning of the reference to an object, it also indicates the pragmatic attitude or perspective from which the speaker expresses himself/herself. In the communicative role of the speaker, someone addresses at least one listener. The interpersonal relationship linked to the perspective of the first, second and third person updates an underlying relationship of belonging to a social group. Only here do we come across the pronominal sense of the expression "I". >Communication/Habermas, >Intersubjectivity._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
