Abstract

The proposed research examines the use of economic concepts in social ontology. Special focus will be put on the notions of the market, the firm, and regulation as they appear in the so-called New Institutiional Economics. Each of these terms is taken to denote a different idea of order and coordination in society. A major goal is to determine the extent to which they are able to inform philosophical accounts of the constitution of society.
