Feminist Christine Delphy co-founded the magazine Nouvelles questions féministes with Simone de Beauvoir within the Nineteen Seventies and have become probably the most influential figures in French feminism. this day, Delphy is still a well-known and debatable feminist philosopher, a unprecedented public voice denouncing the racist motivations of the government’s 2011 ban of the Muslim veil.

Fo r he also uses this latter expression in another, stronger sense, namely, for actions in w h ich coordination o ccu rs b y explicit, dialogically achieved consensus o nly (see below, this section). In order to avoid repeating H ab e rm a s’s e qu ivocation on “ com m unicative action,” I adopt the fo llo w in g term in o log y: I reserve the expression “ com m unicatively achieved a ctio n ” fo r actions coordinated by explicit, reflective, dialogically achieved consensus.
