Habermas (1979) views the individual both as an autonomous speaker and as one participating among others within two worlds: the inner and outer. The unification of the inner and outer worlds of the speaker is made possible by the speaker’s discourse-centered act. Communicatively, the speaker has a first-person relation to his/her inner world, a third-person relation to the outer world; and most important a second-person relation to the social world of interaction. This triangulation provides the grounds for the speaker’s autonomy, for a meaningful communication among others, and the possibility of reflection in the form of rational reconstruction (Habermas, 1998).

Keywords: Popular cinema, rational reconstruction, emancipation, intersubjectivity, critique, intended object, intersubjective claims, emancipator, rationale, conceptual framework, intended object.
