3 As Habermas rejects prelinguistic foundations, the priority of communicative over strategic rationality is dissociated from 'needs' or 'drives' or 'consciousness' and is located in human interaction within a society (Papastephanou, 1997).
4 As she writes, 'Allan Bloom, for example, asserts that "only in the Western nations, i.e. those influenced by Greek philosophy, is there some willingness to doubt the identification of the good with one's own way." This inaccurate description neglects rich critical traditions in many non-Western philosophical cultures and, of course, the everyday critical rationality of most human beings in all places and times. On this shaky basis Bloom then judges the West to be superior and the non-West to be not worth studying' (132).
