Searle and Menger on Money

Published in Philosophy of the social sciences. 2010, vol. 40, no. 2, p. 191-212
Abstract In Searle’s social ontology, collective intentionality is an essential component of all institutional facts.This is because the latter involve the assignment of functions, namely “status functions,” on entities whose physical features do not guarantee their performance, therefore requiring our acceptance that it be performed. One counter-example to that claim can be found in Carl Menger’s individualistic account of the money system. Menger’s commitment to the self-interest assumption, however, prevents him from accounting for the deontic dimensions of institutional facts.
