This author deals with linguistic issues very close to those dealt with via 'adverbial theory'. In particular I found the final chapter very useful for my purposes. The author writes about adverbial-theory-related matters whilst avoiding the, at times, off-puttingly-complex ways that adverbial theorists explain the non-existence of ‘mind’ and its putative contents. So, I found reading the book worth my while.
The author writes in a crisp and clear manner and I felt convinced by the thrust of what he argued in spite of an almost total lack of author-biography and credibility-claims/qualifications.
I would like to know something about the author and the background to his writing the book.

My research touches on the philosophy of language. I am a designer probing the difference between inter-dependence and inter-discipline in the context of built environment design group practices. Whilst looking for work by John Searle (making of the social) I stumbled across this book. Similar to the previous reviewer, I found the work very accessible. And again would like to know more about the author and where the thinking stems from. It is very akin to Searle but almost easier to grasp.
