This book includes new and unpublished ideas from Searle such as speech acts, how to do things with words, the dialogic imagination, collective intentionality and intersubjectivity, and the creation of meaning. In this book we find a hard criticism to postmodernism, but also the analyze of the relationship between language and social studies that clarifies his criticisms of the conception of speech acts and more concretely Habermas’ contributions that help to differentiate, for example, a free communicative act from other type of act that constitutes psychological abuse.
