Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Comentamos aquí la teoría del construccionismo social expuesta por John R. Searle en el ámbito de la filosofía analítica, comparándola con otras concepciones construccionistas, y sometiéndola a una crítica desde una perspectiva interaccionalista sobre el construccionismo social. Enfatizamos en concreto el papel de los consensos parciales, de los conflictos, y de la disensión, a la hora de interpretar los fenómenos institucionales, así como los conceptos construccionistas de 'hecho' y de 'verdad' que también expone Searle en la segunda parte de su libro sobre 'La construcción de la realidad social'.

English Abstract: This is a commentary and a critique of John R. Searle's theory of social constructionism, which he formulates in the context of analytic philosophy. This paper compares it with other constructionist conceptions, and criticizes it from the standpoint of an interactionalist conception of social constructionism. We emphasize the role of partial consensus, of conflicts, and of dissent, in the interpretation of institutional phenomena and of the notions of 'fact' and 'truth' which Seale also deals with in the second section of his book on 'The Construction of Social Reality'.
