Toward a Critical Theoretic Perspective in Information Systems.
Benoit, Gerald
Library Quarterly, v72 n4 p441-71 Oct 2002
Considers the logico-analytic philosophy of library and information science (LIS); discusses Jurgen Habermas' theory of communicative action; examines how LIS, particularly research into librarian-patron interaction and information system design, favors an empiricist view of language and thus may be limiting its effectiveness; and suggests the inclusion of communicative action to expand the field.
