For nearly three decades now, the intellectual community in Western countries has been under the spell of Jürgen Habermas's prolific pen. Even when measured against the highest professional or academic standards, Habermas's opus is a prodigious phenomenon virtually unparalleled in our time…. In this situation both initiates and novices must welcome an effort to present a coherent account or synopsis of Habermas's sprawling theoretical edifice; the delight and gratitude is bound to be particularly strong where the effort is successful and even brilliantly executed—as in the case of Thomas McCarthy's study.
