A difficult reading, but worth the persistence. One reading is not enough, and one must try to fully understanding the connections between the different themes collected in this book, for linguistic turn, metaphysics, communicative/strategic action, life-world, individualism and individuation - the main concepts around which Habermas's thought here revolves - are interwoven in a unique manner. Definitely a good read.
