    "description": "<p>Karl-Otto Apel&#39;s &#39;transcendental pragmatics of language&#39;, 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&#39;s claims that the community of communication is <em>transcendental, real and also ideal, apriori, dialectical, and the medium of discursive rationality.</em> Apel&#39;s concept of the community of communication does not refer to the set of all beings that can communicate with each other. Rather, Apel&#39;s concept refers to a specific intrinsically normative understanding of one&#39;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.</p>",
