Audio Recordings of J.L. Austin Lecture

Via Eric Johnson-DeBaufre, librarian at the Robbins Library of Philosophy at Harvard University, come a pair of audio recordings of J.L. Austin discussing performatives.

The first is a lecture, and the second contains a question and answer session. The lecture took place in October, 1959, in Sweden. It’s currently unknown who recorded them.
