Global Democracy Reading Group
Reading Group on Institutions
The Reading Group on Institutions meets 4-6 times per semester to discuss some recently published books in social metaphysics, with a focus on institutions. We instated it by discussing Brian Epstein's The Ant Trap: Rebuilding the Foundations of the Social Sciences (Oxford UP 2015, winner of the Joseph B. Gittler Award, American Philosophical Association, & 2016 Lakatos Award) and we are now discussing Francesco's Guala's Understanding Institutions (Princeton UP 2016, winner of the 2018 Joseph B. Gittler Award, American Philosophical Association).
