jollyrgrs added a topic in History and Philosophy of Sciencewhat's the difference between illocutionary acts and performative utterances?hi, I'm new to philosophy and I'm helplessly confused about illocutionary acts and performative utterances.
In my saying 'I promise to do...', I perform the promise, wouldn't this be same as an illocutionary act? What's the difference then, between illocutionary/performative?
Thx a lot. Really appreciate any help!
