paper description
In this paper I amplify Habermas's eclecticism, and draw on a variety of pedagogic, psychologic, philosophic, and feminist literature to explore and critique the Habermasian Ideal Speech Situation (ISS). I believe that ISS, as the intersection of various ontological positions, has implications for our daily practices, and I illustrate how these might be transformed. Thus, I am proclaiming ISS as an catalyst for reflexive considerations of our ontological positions, and for instigating transformative processes.
