Французские социологи о капитализме (О книге Л. Болтански и Э. Кьяпелло «Новый дух капитализма»)

Вопросы экономики. 2011. № 9. С. 152-156.

 

This comment on a paper by C. Bessy and O. Favereau (“Institutions and economic theory of conventions”) discusses an interdisciplinary character of the theory of conventions and a potential fruitfulness of a dialogue between social sciences. In light of this dialogue, are reviewed some particularities of the conventionalist use of a notion of “institution”, as well as the interpretation given by Bessy and Favereau to a relation between “institution” and “convention”. Finally, a question is formulated concerning the consequences of the conventionalist analysis of institutions for social ontology and  methodology of economic sciences.
