In] the model of ideal discourse that Habermas holds, moreover, there appears to be no role for metaphor, jokes, irony and other forms of communication that use surprise and duplicity. [. ] Implicitly this model of communication supposes a purity of the meaning of utterances by separating them from their expressive and metaphorical aspects. (Young, 1987: 71) The everyday and the lifeworld Habermas’ account of the relationship between language, ethics and rationality is echoed by—and to a certain extent grounded in—his theory of everyday life, which is developed primarily through his system/lifeworld distinction.

Rather than purify the ‘messy’ and heterodox character of everyday life, the alternative would be to eschew defining it by any specific quality (for example, routinization or taken-for-grantedness), or construing it as a specific, delimited sector of the social world (as ontologically distinct from system, in Habermas’ formulation), but instead to see it as riven with numerous contradictions, marked by a considerable degree of heterogeneity, and exhibiting manifold connections to all areas of social life (see Gardiner, 2000).
