Searle then applies the account to teach the way it pertains to human rationality, the liberty of the need, the character of political energy and the life of common human rights. during his explication, he asks even if robots could have associations, why the specter of strength so usually lies at the back of associations, and he denies that there could be one of these factor as a "state of nature" for language-using human beings.
