Subject: HAB: Habermas vs. Apel on performative self-contradiction


What is your view of Habermas' appropriation and critique of Apel's
sense of performative self-contradiction, as this is addressed by
Habermas in "Discourse Ethics"?

Habermas's sense of performative contradiction has been discussed on
this list--quite animately a year-or-so ago--but I don't recall that
you weighed in on that (not that anything was ever resolved back

More generally, what is your view of Habermas' critique of Apel. Does
Habermas misunderstand Apel in some important respect, or is
Habermas-on-transcendentality truly Apel's successor?

Thanks for letting me know you're an Apel expert!
