  • Institutional Theory for Political Analysis! Jun 7, 2007
    by AppiahD

    Searle's General Theory of Institutions contain the underlying tools for institutional analysis of the political basis for liberal democratic regimes. This is a subject that has long been neglected by Political Scientists. Political Institutional Theorist s should pay attention to Searle for a meaningful theoretical debate on the subject matter of institutional effects on outcomes. I shall forever remain grateful that my supervisor recommended the book to me after a fruitless search for an appropriate theory in Political Science for understanding how institutions affects the actions of autonomous practical rational actors. The theory is a gem of among institutional theories. All graduate students concerned with institutional analysis of social interaction outcomes are encouraged to take a look for themselves.
