Searle says simply that both are true: Alston, who maintained that sentence meaning consists in sets of regulative rules requiring the speaker to perform the illocutionary act indicated by the sentence, and that such acts involve the utterance of a sentence which a indicates that one performs the act, b means what one says, and c addresses an audience in the vicinity.

We see certain behavior as rational, no matter what its source, and our system of rules derives from finding patterns in what we see as rational. First, he argues that reasons don’t cause you to do anything, because having sufficient reason wills but doesn’t force you to do that thing. It is widely believed that one cannot derive an “ought” from an “is”, i. Searle’s The Construction of Social Reality addresses the mystery of how social constructs like “baseball” or “money” can exist in a world consisting only of physical laa in fields of force.

Trevor, Patrick Williams, John Foulds et al. There is no physical law, Searle insists, that can see the equivalence between a personal computer, a series of ping-pong balls and beer cans, and a pipe-and-water system all implementing the same program.
