Intersubjectivist Theory and Leadership

(p.79) 4 Intersubjectivist Theory and Leadership
Ethics and Organizational Leadership

Mick Fryer (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes Jürgen Habermas' approach to intersubjectivism, presenting his theories of communicative action and discourse ethics as a response to his own earlier call for a form of rationality that is suited to critical social theory. Some implications that Habermas' ideas hold for leadership are considered. A number of practical and conceptual challenges to Habermas' conclusions, which have been offered by writers who broadly share his intersubjectivist commitment, are outlined. These challenges are used to augment the understanding of intersubjectivist leadership already presented. The chapter ends with some general reflections concerning moral philosophy and leadership, which have been garnered from the three chapters of Part II.

Keywords:   communication, communicative action, discourse ethics, ideal speech, intersubjectivism, facilitation, Habermas, leadership, mediation
