Product Overview

John L. Austin was one of the leading philosophers of the twentieth century. The William James Lectures presented Austins conclusions in the field to which he directed his main efforts on a wide variety of philosophical problems. These talks became the classicHow to Do Things with Words.For this second edition, the editors have returned to Austins original lecture notes, amending the printed text where it seemed necessary. Students will find the new text clearer, and, at the same time, more faithful to the actual lectures. An appendix contains literal transcriptions of a number of marginal notes made by Austin but not included in the text. Comparison of the text with these annotations provides new dimensions to the study of Austins work.
