Subject: HAB: posttraditional

When Habermas is using the term "postraditional" or speaking about
"posttraditional society" he usually refers to Max Weber. Other authors
like Giddens or Lorenzen do so as well. At the moment dealing with Weber
I found, that he himself doesn't use the term "posttraditional" und that
he's using "traditional" with another sence as Habermas. Does anyone
knows, where the term comes from or who has used or introduced it first?
