Institutional Theory for Political Analysis! Jun 7, 2007
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.
