'John L. Austin was one of the leading philosophers of the twentieth century. The William James Lectures presented Austin's conclusions in the field to which he directed his main efforts for more than ten years, with important effects on a wide variety of philosophical problems. These talks became the classic How to Do Things with Words.' - from back cover

The lectures printed here were delivered by Austin as the William James Lectures at Harvard University in 1955, which form the basis of his theory of speech acts.
