Keywords: Ethical Foundations | Transcendental Philosophy | Discourse Ethics | Practical Reason | Argumentation

The debate concerning the validity and foundation of ethical behavior as opposed to that which is dictated by norms cannot be resolved in the field of methodical thought nor by using deductive procedures, its resolution lies rather in theoretical philosophy in general and concerns the same scenario as that of critical philosophy. What one is looking for is a way to organize communication on a social level and to implement discursive reasoning.The problem is twofold: on the one hand the problem of communication concerns the structure of society and the possibility of communicating freely independent of dominion, on the other hand it relates to transcendental thought relating to the possibility of creating a foundation for ethics.The latter (ethic foundation) is always a pre- requisite and is activated in discourse itself.
