Abstract The present study explores the rhetoric and performative dimensions of economic science. The practice of rhetorics is as old as the practise of social interaction, and rhetoric dialogue bares a lot of similarities with economic exchange. The intrinsic dialogue between economists involves the intention of persuasion in their speech. Thus, the rhetorical intention of persuasion is linked in this study with the linguistic theory of direct and indirect speech acts. The concept of performativity was initially introduced by linguistic philosophy to describe how some things are done with words and sentences that declare an intention. Economic sociologists are shown to have also employed performativity in order to analyse the multiple ways in which economic science acts as performing and framing, instead of just describing, the markets. Performativity in the socio-economic approach of Actor-Network Theory is connected with the sociomaterial assemblages that constitute the actors' position in their social network. After demonstrating the most explicit examples where performativity has been indicated by researchers, the study is concluded with some critical remarks on the institutional role of economic science and the effects of performative economics to our Μarket-driven democracies.
