:: The Theory of Positive Self-Reference (25-11-2002 12:43)
In this theory of positive self-reference Anders Bordum attempts to explicate the position taken by Jürgen Habermas on the problem of self-reference. The theory demonstrates that self-references can be valid and does not always lead to contradiction - an understanding Habermas has built into his theory by way of the ban on performative contradition and the justification of formal pragmatics.
