Statement on John Searle’s alleged sexual harassment behaviors
In light of John Searle’s alleged sexual harassment behaviors sanctioned by UC Berkeley 2017 and given that CREA published a dialogue with him about communicative acts, we declare:
1) That CREA’s only relationship with Searle was that one-off intellectual dialogue that lasted 4 hours in 2004 when nothing was yet known about these behaviors;
2) That CREA was the one who carried out the first investigations and broke the silence about sexual harassment in Spanish universities;
3) That CREA’s network of people has always condemned and will always condemn any harassing behavior and has always broken and will always break any kind of relationship with those who commit such behaviors, as it has done with Searle.
