    Title: Lifeworldly practice and normativity of emotion.

    Abstract: Inspired by Husserl's concept of the lifeworld and Wittgenstein's analysis of rule-following I try to explain how normativity is constituted in interaction. Because this takes place on the prescientific lifeworldly level, I hypothesize that emotion plays a decisive role in this process.
