In this paper I present a comparison between the ontological theory of social reality by Maurizio Ferraris (2005; 2009) and that by John Searle (1995; 2010). I describe the different conditions of possibility of social objects and the metaphysical assumptions of the two theories, taking a stand in favour of Ferraris' theory of Documentality as the most explanatory of social phenomena. Finally, I argue that a "Documental" theory of social reality better accounts for social reality than ontology object-oriented ontologies, as the latter propose different metaphysical theories (realism, constructivism, etc.. ) for different classes of objects (social, natural, etc.).
