The study shows some reviews that Habermas made in his discursive concept of truth. Such reviews intend to give a fair treatment to the semantic question, imposed by the thesis of an identical external world, unavailable and independent of linguistical aspects; which implies an uncomfortable mode of presentation broadly accepted as linguistically in the world. The most significant reviews are summarized in what Habermas calls weak naturalism and realism without representationism. This article also analyzes the role still played, in Wharheit und Rechtfertigung, of a non-communicative use of language, as well as, the distinction between consensus and understanding. The heart of the text consists in the presentation of his revised conception of pragmatic truth, which unites the epistemic and the discursive version of truth. Finally, it makes a comparative judgment between the claim of truth and the claim of normative correction.
