Resource description

This is a slightly revised version of an article I published in 1991 (Ove K. Pedersen,1991, “Nine Questions to a Neo-Institutional Theory in Political Science”,Scandinavian Political Studies, vol. 14, no. 2, p. 125-148). The purpose of the article 16years ago is the same as the purpose of presenting this note today - to point to a numberof methodological and theoretical problems which have to be discussed in connectionwith a theory of institutional change. No analytical approach for the study of institutionswill be presented. No description of actual institutions or institutional change will begiven. Rather, nine philosophical-methodological questions rarely raised and neveranswered in institutional theory will be asked.
