Review of John R. Searle Rationality in Action [Book Review]

Abstract
In this book, John Searle makes a significant contribution to the philosophy of rational action, and its implications for the problem of free will. The book also marks a change in Searle’s thinking since his 1992 book The Rediscovery of the Mind , particularly in that he now leaves open, as a reasonable possibility, that consciousness may be able to cause things that cannot be fully explained by the causal behaviour of neurons: for me, a step in the right direction (cf. Hodgson 1994). Searle also for the first time supports a non- Humean notion of the self, as an entity that can, as a whole, consciously try to do things.
