The Philosophical Consistency of “Language Game” with “Process-Oriented Definition of Public Interest”(pdf file)
Li-Yi Hsu*
Abstract
This article reviews the idea “process oriented definition of public interest (process orientation)” that was suggested by the Blacksburg Manifesto in 1988. The author thinks that the idea “process orientation” is similar to the postmodern deconstructivism proposed by Jean Baudrillard and consistent with the idea “language game”. This article, therefore, elaborates on the idea “process orientation” in the first place. Then, the author analyzes the philosophy of deconstructivism and points out its meanings to language game. Finally, the author tries to estimate the inspirations to public dialogue from the concept of language game.
Keywords: postmodernism, deconstructivism, Blacksburg Manifesto, process oriented definition of public interest, language game
