Current discussion of performativity focuses mostly on economics, and has prevalently a critical tone. Yet performativity, as understood by philosophers representing the ordinary language perspective, is, and will continue to be, a stable ingredient of social life. Additionally, such social sciences as management and organization studies are supposed to be performative. This text takes up the issue of non-performance, and discusses felicity conditions for social sciences.
