Sample text

Applied to assertions it would go something like this. To assert that p in uttering S is to utter S with the intention of producing in one’s audience the activated belief that p, where this intention must satisfy certain further, and very complicated, conditions. I will not go into those further conditions, since I will argue that the account is not sufficient even without those additional requirements. The reason the account does not work is very simple. There are clear cases of asserting that p in which U does not have the intention in question.

In particular, to assert that p is to take responsibility for its being the case that p in uttering an appropriate sentence. This is a notion that I introduced (1964a, 1964b) as a way of bringing out how a speaker must be related to the proposition that p in order that this proposition be involved in an illocutionary act he is performing. It is also introduced by Searle in his model analysis of promising (1969:62), though he does not put the notion in the centre of the picture as I do. We must be careful to understand ‘take responsibility for state of affairs F’ here in a rather special way.

Nevertheless, the hypothesis that some significant correlation might be found to exist between the illocutionary capacities of sentences and their grammatical characteristics is an interesting empirical hypothesis, and the fact that a particular formulation of that hypothesis—generally known as the ‘performative hypothesis’—had to be abandoned in the course of the early history of transformational grammar does not show that every formulation of it would be similarly indefensible. There are two distinct types of interest that research aimed at confirming appropriate formulations of such an hypothesis might serve.
