Readers of Jürgen Habermas's Theory of Communicative Action and his later social concept understand that the assumption of communicative rationality is relevant to his model of severe conception. Language and Reason opens up new territory for social theorists by way of supplying the 1st common advent to Habermas's application of formal pragmatics: his reconstruction of the common rules of attainable knowing that, he argues, are already operative in daily communicative practices. Philosophers of language will become aware of stunning and fruitful connections among Habermas's account of language and validity (especially his thought of that means) and their very own issues.

We have seen three classes: completely speciﬁed, underspeciﬁed, and completely unspeciﬁed. Another and ﬁnal class is that of letters which change their nature through the proposition. They may ﬁrst appear as completely unspeciﬁed, and then become at least underspeciﬁed; or they may ﬁrst appear as underspeciﬁed, and later get complete speciﬁcation. This is the basic classiﬁcation into four classes. I have surveyed all the letters in Apollonius’ Conics and Euclid’s Elements , counting how many belong to each class.
Section will describe some of the historical contexts of the lettered diagram. Section is a very brief summary. However, not all hope is lost. The texts – whose transmission is relatively well understood – refer to diagrams in various ways. On the basis of these references, observations concerning the practices of diagrams can be made. I thus start from the text, and from that base study the diagrams. The critical edition most useful from the point of view of the ancient diagrams is Mogenet ().
The manuscript tradition for Greek mathematical diagrams, I repeat, has not been studied systematically. But superﬁcial observations corroborate Weitzman’s theory. The most signiﬁcant question from a mathematical point of view is whether the diagram was meant to be metrical: whether quantitative relations inside the diagram were meant to correspond to such relations between the objects depicted. The alternative is a much more schematic diagram, representing only the qualitative relations of the geometrical conﬁguration.
