Summary
  • "In this book, John Searle brings concepts such as reality, truth, consciousness and society from their abstract perch down to the world we all live in. He takes readers through the conceptual problems associated with basic metaphysics, the biology of the mind, the structure of consciousness, the paradox of intentionality, the nature of language and the structure of the social universe. Condemning the belief that our world is dependent on our perception of it, Searle stresses that there is a real world, and discusses the ways in which philosophy can help us deal with it. In short, he takes questions apart, analyzes them and then places them together to present a "total philosophy." In Mind, Language and Society, Searle teaches us how to practice philosophy in the real world. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
