Thus, functioning bureaucracies were linked to active parliaments that constantly requested information from them. In turn, as elected bodies, these parliaments were subject to democratic pressures through public opinion. Thus, public information stems from the openness of the bureaucracy to legislative scrutiny. Parliamentary debate supports legal-rational domination found in bureaucracies because law is an expression of both sovereignty and rationality only in democratic legislatures (Habermas 1970:91; 1975:97–102; 1979:199–200; 1989:81–82).
From their perspective, science has no privileged logic or methodology that is not found in everyday life. Nevertheless, Lynch (1988:72, 79) noted Schutz’s widespread influence in science studies that draw on his idea that scientific activity includes elements of common-sense rationality. This application of Schutz’s work fits closely with ours that uses him to motivate the idea that census categories build on common-sense ones. Finally, from the opposite theoretical perspective, Watts (2014:315) recently THE INTERACTIVE EFFECTS OF STATES AND SOCIETIES 23 reinvigorated the debate by insisting that sociological concepts should be based on their ability to predict outcomes, not common sense, thus suggesting a logical difference between scientific and lay categories.

Our model collapses into a more conventional one if the meso level is merged into either the micro or macro level and the domains are combined into a single category that does not differentiate between state and social domains (cf. Carroll 2009:574; Coleman 1986:1322; Ritzer  1996:496). Examples of these collapsed versions include system/lifeworld (Habermas), doxa/practice (Bourdieu), hegemony/praxis (Gramsci; civil society is analogous to meso society), and taken for granted/interaction (Schutz, Berger and Luckmann).
