Autobiography: Essays Theoretical and Critical.

The standard ideas of ideology critique exhibit the problems with asolely third-person model of criticism dependent on some idea of thetheorists being able to discern the “real interests” ofparticipants (Geuss 1981). Rather than claiming objectivity in atransperspectival sense, most practically oriented Critical Theoristshave always insisted that their form of social inquiry takes a“dual perspective” (Habermas 1996, chapter 1; Bohman 1991,chapter 4). This dual perspective has been expressed in many differentways. Critical Theorists have always insisted that critical approacheshave dual methods and aims: they are both explanatory and normative atthe same time, adequate both as empirical descriptions of the socialcontext and as practical proposals for social change. This dualperspective has been consistently maintained by Critical Theorists intheir debates about social scientific knowledge, whether it is withregard to the positivism dispute, universal hermeneutics, or micro- ormacro-sociological explanations.

The Conflict of Interpretation: Essays in Hermeneutics.

Besides the spontaneous emergence of publics out of transnationalassociations, it is also possible to make use of self-consciouslyconstructed publics of relevant stakeholders to act as“mini-publics” that are empowered to deliberate and makedecisions (Fung 2003). Here we can include a variety of experiments,from participatory budgets to citizen boards and juries that have avariety of decision-making powers. Properly empowered andself-consciously constructed, mini-publics offer a strategy to getbeyond the dilemma of insider consultation and outsider contestationthat is a structural feature of civil society activity in currentlyexisting international institutions. Since self-consciously createdminipublics seek to include all relevant stakeholders, they do not relyon representation as the mode of communicating interests, or even theinclusion of well-organized actors as a way of achieving effectiveimplementation. Instead they open up a directly deliberative processwithin the institution that includes as many perspectives as possibleand can be repeated when necessary. The minipublic is then aninstitutionally constructed intermediary, although it could act in sucha way as to become an agent for the creation of a larger public withnormative powers. In this capacity, minipublics may become open andexpandable spaces for democratic experimentation. While many are issueor domain specific, such experiments often become models for democraticgovernance in dispersed and diverse polities. As Cohen and Rogers putit, the more specific and episodic practices aim at mutual benefitsthrough improved coordination, experimental deliberative practices tiedto larger political projects may redistribute power and advantage andin this way secure the conditions of democracy more generally (Cohenand Rogers 2003, 251).

"Feminist Criticism in the Wilderness." 1985.

In the dispute about positivist social science, Critical Theoristsrejected all forms of reductionism and insisted on the explanatory roleof practical reason. In disputes about interpretation, CriticalTheorists have insisted that social science not make a forced choicebetween explanation and understanding. Even if social scientists canonly gain epistemic access to social reality through interpretation,they cannot merely repeat what agents know practically in their“explanatory understanding.” Here we might think of explanationsthat create micro- and macro linkages, as between intentional actionspursued by actors for their own purposes and their unintended effectsdue to interdependencies of various sorts. Such dual perspectiveexplanations and criticism both allow the reflective distance ofcriticism and the possibility of mediating the epistemic gap betweenthe participants' more internal and the critics' more external point ofview. Given the rich diversity of possible explanations and stances,contemporary social science has developed a variety of possible ways toenhance critical perspective taking.
