Twas written: >>If anyone has a reference to a discussion by or about Habermas 
which sets out the distinction between a scientific or technical discourse (e.g.
"what's the best way to build a bridge" or "how should we define the meter") as 
opposed to the discourses that one usually envisions taking place in the public 
sphere, I would be most grateful.

For a chilling critique of Habermas's use of psychoanalysis and Habermas's 
"self-understanding" of methodology: see Adolf Grunbaum, The Foundations of 
Psychoanalysis (first 40 pages or so).
