Veranstaltende Institution: METODO. International Studies in Phenomenology and Philosophy

Within the history of philosophy, theories of institutions have dwelled following different traditions and lines of enquiry. The concept of institution has played a central role in more classical approaches, such as in ancient political philosophy (Plato, Aristotle), social contract theory and philosophy of right (Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Hegel, Rawls), but has also animated discourses that focus on the specific historicity and temporality of institutions, as it is the case with respect to the concepts of institutionalisation (social theory), Stiftung (Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Lefort, Castoriadis) or language in post- analytic context (Searle). It seems therefore that institutions recur in philosophical reflection from a twofold perspective. At issue are not only the specific institutional realities and structures, which reflection is historically and geographically confronted with, but the concept of institution in general, considered as a tool for the understanding of the opaque crossroad where practice, sociality and historical becoming seem to intersect.
