Author Item Summary Meta data
Habermas III 378
Action Theory/Communicative Action/Weber/HabermasVsWeber/Habermas: since Weber assumes a monological model of action, "social action" cannot be explained by the concept of meaning. It is based on the concept of purposive action and must extend it by two provisions to explain social interaction:
a) Orientation towards the behaviour of other subjects
b) The reflexive relationship between the orientations of several interaction participants.
Habermas III 379
Act/Action/Weber/Habermas: Weber distinguishes between
procedural rational
value rational
emotional and
traditional action.
Weber therefore does not start with the social relationship.
Habermas III 380
Purpose rational action/Weber: the subjective sense here extends to: Means, purposes, values, consequences
Value rational action: on means, purposes, values
Emotional action: on means and purposes
Traditional action: only on the means.
Habermas III 381
Habermas: "Inofficial version" of Weber's theory of action ((s) this is a position not explicitly represented by Weber, which could, however, be deduced from his texts): here mechanisms of coordination of action are distinguished, depending on whether only interests or also social agreement are taken as a basis. (1) See Action Theory/Habermas.
