Resolved Question: What are your views of
"Society is dependent upon a criticism of its own traditions"
"According to the German philosopher Jurgen Habermas, modern society depends not only on technological advances, but also upon of ability to criticise and reason collectively about our own traditions.
Reason says Habermas, lies at the heart of our everyday communications. Somebody says or does something and we say, "Why did you do that ?" or "Why did you say that?"
We continually ask for justifications which is why Habermas talks about "communicative" reason. Reason, for him,is not about abstract truths, but about the need we have to justify ourselves to others. "
All that is a quote from a book I'm reading ...
B.Q. How does this notion sit with an era dominated by advertising and the mass media ...?
How does that sit the with concept Noam Chomsky alluded to when he said "If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion "...?
