The Philosophy of Social Practices: A Collective Acceptance View

Portada
Cambridge University Press, 16 ago. 2007 - 288 páginas
This philosophical and conceptual study shows how social practices (customs and traditions) are "building blocks of society." Raimo Tuomela systematically reveals how social institutions are constructed from these "building blocks." His analysis is based on the novel concept of shared "we-attitudes," which represent a weak form of collective intentionality, and he makes instructive connections to major topics and figures in philosophy and the social sciences.
