SnO meeting: Research presentation “The object of institutional logics”

  • When: 05/02/2015
  • Where: HEC Paris
  • Speakers: Diane-Laure Arjalies & Roger Friedland

Following his invitation and stay at HEC Paris during the past years, Roger Friedland has continued his investigations about relationships between religion, organizations and behavior. With Diane Laure Arjalies, they developed a paper “The object of institutional logics” which will be presented by Diane Laure at SnO's meeting.

Abstract: This paper explores the role of objects in the unfolding of institutional logics. Based on the analysis of Boltanksi and Thévenot’s approach to objects developed in their sociology of worth (i.e. On Justification) and the recent work by Boltanski on institutions (i.e. On Critique), Friedland and Arjalies suggest a conceptual framework that theorizes institutional logics as valuation processes. They identify four key value moments – i.e. establishment of a good, its production function, its reference and its evaluation – through which a substance is instituted, enacted, territorialized and evaluated. Throughout, they show the key roles of objects as instantiations, medias and territories of the institutional logic. Theorizing the role of objects in institutional logics requires us to think the teleological, ontological and deontological foundations of institutional logics as co-implicated moments. They illustrate their model by showing how accounting can be described as an institutional logic that economizes the society.
