%0 Report %@ 433 %A Cohen, Phil R. and Levesque, Hector J. %T Rational Interaction As The Basis For Communication %C 333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025 %I AI Center, SRI International %D 1988 %K Natural Language!Interaction %X This paper derives the basis of a theory of communication from a formal theory of rational interaction. The major result is a demonstration that illocutionary acts need neither be primitive, nor explicitly recognized. As a test case, we derive Searle’s conditions on requesting from principles of rationality coupled with a theory of imperatives. The theory rests on a formal account of intention and distinguishes insincere or nonserious imperatives from true requests. A theory of purposeful communication thus emerges as a consequence of principles of action and interaction. %U http://www.ai.sri.com/pubs/files/534.pdf
