|Abstract||In his Reflection Revisited, James Swindal interprets Habermas's formal pragmatics as recasting the traditional philosophy of reflection in intersubjective, augmentation-theoretic terms. In this review essay, I consider some aspects of Swindal's interpretation for situated moral criticism. I focus in particular on Swindal's claim that moral discourse must be preceded by meta-discourses in which actors discuss issues related to the initiation of moral discourse. Although I reject Swindal's arguments for the necessity of such meta-discourses, I provide further arguments for their theoretical possibility and practical desirability for a contextualized critical social theory. Key Words: critical theory formal pragmatics Habermas moral discourse reflection theory of communicative action.|
