Consciousness and Language

John R. Searle, University of California, Berkeley, CA

One of the most important and influential philosophers of the last 30
years, John Searle has been concerned throughout his career with a
single overarching question: how can we have a unified and
theoretically satisfactory account of ourselves and of our relations
to other people and to the natural world? In other words, how can we
reconcile our common-sense conception of ourselves as conscious, free,
mindful, rational agents in a world that we believe includes brute,
unconscious, mindless, meaningless, mute physical particles in fields
of force? The essays in this collection are related to this broad
overarching issue that unites the diverse strands of Searle's work. As
many as these essays have previously only been available in relatively
obscure books and journals, this collection will be of particular
interest to philosophers and those in psychology and linguistics.
