Normativity and collective recognition in Searle's account of language and social ontology

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

Starting from Searle’s thesis that institutions are created and maintained through collective recognition of status functions according to the logical form of constitutive rules “X counts as Y in C”, the author analyses the crucial role of the constitutive rules underlying human linguistic and institutional acting in Searle’s wake from Speech Acts to Making the social world. Making explicit how the types of these constitutive rules are parallel for speech acts and institutional reality, the author aims to derive from them the normative criteria for the rational assessment both of speech acts and institutions, showing how they allow one to distinguish rationally motivated collective recognition from tacit acquiescence in totalitarian regimes.
