  • Der Sinn der Institutionenby Mateusz Stachura; Agathe Bienfait; Gert Albert; Steffen Sigmund

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 48.48

    Die weberianische Institutionentheorie baut eine Brücke zwischen einer "normativen" und einer "rationalen" Auffassung der Institutionen.

In dieser Perspektive... more...
