Product Description


"This book is a useful exposition of the difficulties that patents on human genes give rise to. Its focus on philosophical considerations adds depth to the debate, and it takes a novel perspective . . . A book that proposes that the model should be abolished should promote useful debate in the field." (The Journal of Biosocial Science, 2011)  

From the Back Cover

John R. Searle’s 1995 publication The Construction of Social Reality is the foundation of this collection of scholarly papers examining Searle′s philosophical theories. Searle’s book sets out to reconstruct the ontology of the social sciences through an analysis of linguistic practices in the context of his celebrated work on intentionality. His book provided a stimulating account of institutional facts such as money and marriage and how they are created and replicated in everyday social life. The authors in this collection provide a critical appraisal of these and other ideas presented in Searle’s original publication. The editors′ introduction clearly outlines the main issues in the debate and provides a useful introduction to Searle′s contributions to social science.
