Searle vs Lawson: After the End of Truth

HEAD TO HEAD: is independent reality a fantasy?

Searle 39 2

A head to head from two combatants in the recently released IAI tv debate After the End of Truth which has caused something of a storm. The debate was not short of disagreement. On one side one of the world’s most influential analytic philosophers, John Searle, was defending realism and philosophy’s classical values: objectivity and truth. On the other philosopher and director of the IAI, Hilary Lawson, argued that realism had failed and an independent reality was a fantasy. So we’ve given both of them a right to reply.
