The Space of Reasons and the Community of Communication of Reasoners

Kettner, Matthias; Molina-Molina, Laura

Karl-Otto Apel's 'transcendental pragmatics of language', his mature philosophic position, contains a number of claims concerning the community of communication that appear hard to reconcile. I reconstruct, and give a coherent account of, Apel's claims that the community of communication is transcendental, real and also ideal, apriori, dialectical, and the medium of discursive rationality. Apel's concept of the community of communication does not refer to the set of all beings that can communicate with each other. Rather, Apel's concept refers to a specific intrinsically normative understanding of one's relatedness to others and their relatedness to oneself, that is necessary to share for all persons involved whenever they intend to articulate linguistically and triangulate intersubjectively their experiences, all validity-claims which they raise concerning their experiences, and all reasons which they think are good enough to justify the respective validity-claims.
