The Construction of Social Reality

Searle, John Rogers

My comments


The analysis is pretty clear, although quite dry and abstract. The book does not spell out very well what consequences its line of argument has in current discussions. It seems to me that a wider discussion in terms of the evolution of humans and their society would be useful. The discussion about "external realism" show how absurd various kinds of anti-realism are, and also gives some explanation of why these absurd positions still are fairly popular.
