In this chapter, it is important to keep in mind the following operational definitions of Habermas’s terms: the domain of technical reflection (instrumental rationality) refers to all units of thinking related to the way one controls and/or manipulates one’s environment. The domain of practical reflection is defined as all units of thinking related to speaker’s social interaction governed by consensual norms that define reciprocal expectations about behavior between individuals. The domain of emancipatory reflection is defined as all units of thinking related to insight gained through critical self-awareness and leading to transformed consciousness.
