Language, Intersubjectivity, Reflection: Peculiarities of K.-O. Apel’s «Linguistic Paradigm»

Tetyuev Leonid I., Saratov State University

The article reveals the peculiarities of «linguistic paradigm» by K.-O. Apel, who has reconstructed historico-humanistic tradition in German philosophy of the language and hermeneutics. The philosopher created his original conception by transforming Kant’s transcendental philosophy seeking the answer to the question about the creation of the conditions for the possible sensible argumentation in modern society, which could be based on language, communication and ethics of joint responsibility. Reference to the idea of the unity of language and linguistic conditions of the possible intersubjective pragmatics of the understanding of one’s self and others becomes particularly topical.
