The Construction of Social Reality

Synopsis

The Construction of Social Reality by John R. Searle

This short treatise looks at how we construct a social reality from our sense impressions; at how, for example, we construct a five-pound note with all that implies in terms of value and social meaning, from the printed piece of paper we see and touch.
