The Social Institution of Discursive Norms : Historical, Naturalistic, and Pragmatic Perspectives, Paperback / softback Book

The Social Institution of Discursive Norms : Historical, Naturalistic, and Pragmatic Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by Leo Townsend, Preston Stovall, Hans Bernhard Schmid

Part of the Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy series

Paperback / softback

Description

The essays in this collection explore the idea that discursive norms—the norms governing our thought and talk—are profoundly social.

Not only do these norms govern and structure our social interactions, but they are sustained by a variety of social and institutional structures. The chapters are divided into three thematic sections.

The first offers historical perspectives on discursive norms, including a chapter by Robert Brandom on the way Hegel transformed Kant’s normativist approach to representation by adding both a social and a historicist dimension to it.

Section II features four chapters that examine the sociality of normativity from within a broadly naturalistic framework.

The third and final section focuses on the social dimension of linguistic phenomena such as online speech acts, oppressive speech, and assertions. The Social Institution of Discursive Norms will be of interest to scholars and advanced students working in philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and social philosophy.
