'a few years before the french revolution, the conditions in prussia looked like a static model of a situation that in france and especially in great britain had become fluid at the beginning of the century. the inhibited judgements were called "public" in view of a public sphere that without question had counted as a sphere of public authority, but was now casting itself loose as a forum in which the private people, come together to form a public, readied themselves to compel public authority to legitimate itself before public opinion. the publicum developed into the public, the subjectum into the [reasoning] subject, the receiver of regulations from above into the ruling authorities' adversary.'
