How to Do Things with Words av J. L. Austin (1955)

  1. 10
    The Message in the Bottle: How Queer Man is, How Queer Language Is, and What One Has to Do With the Other av Walker Percy (elenchus)
    elenchus: Austin analyses possible speech acts, and discusses how every statement is usually a mix of these. Percy focuses on one type of speech act, the denotative (naming) act, and argues it is perhaps the most important of all. Different styles of argument, but they supplement one another quite well.… (mer)

Recopilación de notas del profesor Austin de un ciclo de conferencias en la Universidad de Harvard y que reflejan sus convicciones frente a la filosofía del lenguaje. ( )
  hernanvillamil | Sep 8, 2020 |
Austins's theory of performative language has been influential on a lot of poststructuralist thought; I was surprised to read this for the first time and see how taxonomic the book is. I had expected more reflections on the philosophical consequences of being unable to distinguish clearly between performative and constative utterances. ( )

1) The distinctions Austin makes are useful.
2) The distinctions don't hold up.
3) The collapse of the distinctions is useful. ( )

It's worth noting the title is a pun.

Austin examines when a speech act is performative and not merely constative: when the 'saying' evokes or conjures rather than (merely) states or describes, and is itself an activity (not merely in the trivial sense of flexing vocal cords, etc). Examples such as "I bet", in which case the bet is realised in the saying, rather than the speech act serving merely to report what is happening. Similarly, "I do" (in a wedding ceremony), "I christen this ship", or any number of verdicts such as by a judge or umpire.

In short: magick, though of course Austin declines to use any such vocabulary, assuming even that he was familiar with it.

Begins by drawing a sharp distinction between constative utterances and performative utterances, for the sake of pursuing his argument. Ends by arguing that all speech acts are always both, preferring then to describe three functions of all speech acts rather than to sort them into discrete categories: locutionary, illocutionary, perlocutionary (introduced in Lecture VIII).

Locutionary has a meaning (and is comprised of phonetic, phatic, rhetic acts). "The bull is going to charge."

Illocutionary has a certain force in saying something. Warning someone by stating "The bull is going to charge".

Perlocutionary achieves a certain effect in saying something. Persuading someone to cease making noise and waving a red handkerchief by stating "The bull is going to charge".

Lecture IV touches on the notion / possibility that all persuasion is essentially coercive; but does not explore this so much as evoke it.

Lecture IX links the above to cybernetic causation (signals and responses) as distinct from Newtonian causation (billiard balls).

Lecture XI touches on the relevance of truth / falsity of performatives, and in general. "[W]hat we have to study is not the sentence but the issuance of an utterance in a speech situation." (139) And issuances are not themselves true / false so much as successful or not, on various criteria. "The truth or falsity of a statement depends not merely on the meaning of words but on what act you were performing in what circumstances." (145)

Overall, the approach is analytical in the manner of Robert Dahl in his examination of democratic political theory.

"But the real conclusion must surely be that we need (a) to distinguish between locutionary and illocutionary acts, and (b) specially and critically to establish with respect to each kind of illocutionary act -- warnings, estimates, verdicts, statements, and descriptions -- what if any is the specific way in which they are intended, first to be in order or not in order, and second, to be 'right' or 'wrong'; what terms of appraisal and disappraisal are used for each and what they mean. This is a wide field and certainly will not lead to a conclusion of 'true' and 'false'; nor will it lead to a distinction of statements from the rest, for stating is only one among very numerous speech acts of the illocutionary class.
"Furthermore, in general the locutionary act as well as the illocutionary is an abstraction only: every genuine speech act is both." (147) ( )
