Re: [xmca] Alfred Schuetz

Andy, Mike, Martin

Thanks for this lead.  I have been reading Gadamer's response to Habermas
and the interplay between his notion of *traditions* and Habermas notion of
*emancipation* within social theory.

The two chapter's of Martin's book will help further the conversations on
these themes.

Martin, your conversation with David on the interplay of realization and
instantiation and the centrality of the *relation between* these concepts
seems central to this discussion.

I also wonder about the interplay between realization and reflection and
Gadamer's notion of multiple TYPES of reflection. Assertive reflection,
thematic reflection, and what Gadamer names as  *effective reflection*
where one engages with developing the skills to enter and participate
effectively in playing the games without holding back and *merely* playing
at playing the game.  Effective playing as having its *own* being and *we*
enter this play and get *taken up* and *carried* along within the play. Not
privleging either *subjective* consciousness or *objective* consciousness
but rather privileging the play in which subjectivity and objectivity have
their *ground* [metaphorically]

Martin, I'm not sure if this was the direction you were taking
theconversation, but it what I interpreted you saying.
