Book Summary

Detailed

The book Performatives, Knowledge and Truth is about rehabilitating the performative-constative distinction made and undone by the Oxford philosopher J.L. Austin.  This is sought to be done by relooking at Austin’s reasons for giving up the distinction, his alleged failure to find some foolproof criteria of distinction. Besides, fertility of the concept of performatives to illumine certain philosophical problems, particularly, those of knowledge and truth, is also argued out in defense of the distinction. In the concluding chapter, the impact of Austin’s theory of  performatives/speech acts on literary theory and criticism is discussed as  evidence of the relevance of Austin’s theory of performatives outside the precincts of philosophy. The contentions of the book go against the received understanding of Austin in philosophy of language, and thus provide interesting reading.  It speaks to a fairly wide audience  all those who are interested in Austin’s contribution to philosophy of language and beyond.
