John Searle

John Searle is Mills Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, and is noted for contributions on the nature of language, philosophy of mind and consciousness, and on the characteristics of socially constructed versus physical realities. (Note, however, that Searle's The Construction of Social Reality is not at all about social construction, at least according to Ian Hacking[?]'s The Social Construction of What.)

One of his chief contributions to the field of Artificial Intelligence was proposing the Chinese Room critique.
