Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 2005 - 277 עמודים
The study draws on three principle authors: John Austin was a british philosopher who developed Speech Act theory, in which utterances are understood as actions rather than merely descriptions. Jurgen Habermas is a german philosopher-sociologist who developed Austin's ideas in his theory of communicative action. Habermas identifies himself as a neo-marxist but as the philosopher of discourse he has engaged with thinkers across the political and religious spectrum.

קטעים בולטים

עמוד 196 - And that in the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist, there is truly, really, and substantially the body and blood, together with the SOUL and DIVINITY of our Lord Jesus Christ...
עמוד 25 - When we examine what we should say when, what words we should use in what situations, we are looking again not merely at words (or "meanings," whatever they may be) but also at the realities we use the words to talk about: we are using a sharpened awareness of words to sharpen our perception of, though not as the final arbiter of, the phenomena.
עמוד 30 - So, naturalists observe, a flea Hath smaller fleas that on him prey ; And these have smaller still to bite 'em, And so proceed ad infinitum.
עמוד 28 - One is that a word never — well, hardly ever — shakes off its etymology and its formation. In spite of all changes in and extensions of and additions to its meanings, and indeed rather pervading and governing these, there will still persist the old idea.
עמוד 51 - I explained the performance of an act in this new and second sense as the performance of an 'illocutionary' act, ie performance of an act in saying something as opposed to performance of an act of saying something...
עמוד 51 - Saying something will often, or even normally, produce certain consequential effects upon the feelings, thoughts, or actions of the audience, or of the speaker, or of other persons...
עמוד 44 - Where, as often, the procedure is designed for use by persons having certain thoughts or feelings, or for the inauguration of certain consequential conduct on the part of any participant, then a person participating in and so invoking the procedure must in fact have those thoughts or feelings, and the participants must intend so to conduct themselves, and further C.2 must actually so conduct themselves subsequently.
עמוד 181 - In the systems of the past we do not find simple exchange of goods, wealth and produce through markets established among individuals. For it is groups, and not individuals, which carry on exchange, make contracts, and are bound by obligations; the persons represented in the contracts are moral persons — clans, tribes, and families; the groups, or the chiefs as intermediaries for the groups, confront and oppose each other.
עמוד 25 - First, words are our tools, and, as a minimum, we should use clean tools: we should know what we mean and what we do not, and we must forearm ourselves against the traps that language sets us.
עמוד 85 - The human interest in autonomy and responsibility is not mere fancy, for it can be apprehended a priori. What raises us out of nature is the only thing whose nature we can know: language. Through its structure, autonomy and responsibility are posited for us. Our first sentence expresses unequivocally the intention of universal and unconstrained consensus.
