Texto completo:



Este ensaio aborda as crescentes críticas publicadas ao neoinstitucionalismo, particularmente à abordagem lógica institucional. Ao abordar cada uma das principais críticas formuladas pelos oponentes da teoria – (1) a teoria lógica institucional é tautológica; (2) tudo é institucional; (3) ausência do conceito de poder; (4) e que a teoria lógica institucional não é crítica – o ensaio busca refletir sobre como construir um aparato teórico capaz de se envolver com as atuais crises institucionais do mundo.
