The Construction of Social Reality. Anthony Freeman in conversation with John Searle
John Searle began to discuss his recently published book ‘The Construction of Social Reality’ with Anthony Freeman, and they ended up talking about God. The book itself and part of their conversation are introduced and briefly reflected upon by Anthony Freeman. Many familiar social facts -- like money and marriage and monarchy -- are only facts by human agreement. They exist only because we believe them to exist. That is the thesis, at once startling yet obvious, that philosopher John Searle explores in The Construction of Social Reality.
