When The Critic Outsmarts The Critiqued

In Eduardo Mendieta's recent review of Nicholas Adams' philosophical text Habermas and Theology, Mendieta begins with the following:

"Adjoining two nouns in the title of a book is like writing a blank check to "cash." One better know who is receiving the check and one better make sure to have sufficient funds when it gets cashed. "

So true. So very, very true.
