40 grandes rules que han cambiado el mundo.

Este libro condensa los argumentos clave contra l. a. intolerancia que Voltaire elaboró en su Tratado sobre l. a. tolerancia con motivo del caso Calas. Las razones y conclusiones de Voltaire eran tan válidas entonces como lo son hoy, y los angeles pertinencia de este texto resulta inquietante.

It already has space, time, causation, agency, and object; and with object it has to have identity and individuation together with property and relation. I do not mean that it has to have concepts corresponding to these categories, but rather, for 23 John R. Searle example, that it has to be able to recognize that one object is over there in front of it and another one on the left (space); it has to recognize that its eating occurred in a temporal sequence (time); that it did something, as opposed to something just happening (agency); that some things it did, made other things happen (causation).

And when one such creature intentionally communicates to another, it tries to reproduce its own intentional content in the head of the other person. When it communicates, for example, ‘‘there is danger here’’ it has the belief that there is danger here and it acts in such a way as to convey this belief to another animal. The simplest type of communication would be the cases where one animal communicates information about the world by communicating an unstructured proposition to another animal. By unstructured I mean that the propositional content so far has no internal syntax.

And they are not independent: I create a right by representing myself as already having it. This basic move underlies much of society. It is not easy to see this point but I think it is essential to understanding society. The utterance creates desire-independent reasons for action, and these are then recognized by the collectivity. That same move, that same X-counts-as-Y-incontext-C move, by which you create desire-independent reasons for action in the case of the individual speech act, is now generalizable.
