  1. Hi Prof Krey

    My name is Craig Jenkinson. Reading for an MA Journalism at Wits in Johannesburg. My Research Report’s theoretical approach to the study of mobile media will be informed by Habermas’s notion of communicative action. Any thoughts/corrections you may have will be appreciated!

  2. dear Craig,

    I don’t know what mobile media are and I might be able to plug in Habermas if I did. Do you have some writing that you want me to read and respond to? I’m not sure I can correct it. If you check out my website, you’ll see I’m a generalist, but I just read half of Habermas’ Vol. II and just finished reading Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory for a reflexive sociology. Right now, among others, I am writing a book about performative language called “Creation via Language.” Habermas spent time with John Searle and studied his philosophy of language in order to theorize his communicative action.

    I could give you some suggestions, if I had an inkling about what ball park you are thinking in. I sent you a message so you have my email address.

    Dr. Peter Krey

    • dear teshome,

      check out and read the Dallmayr essay in the footnote above. I have not expanded on Habermas beyond the two posts in my website.
