Institutional Objects, Reductionism and Theories of Persistence

Hansson Wahlberg, Tobias LU (2014) In Dialectica 68(4). p.525-562
Abstract
Can institutional objects be identified with physical objects that have been ascribed status functions, as advocated by John Searle in The Construction of Social Reality (1995)? The paper argues that the prospects of this identification hinge on how objects persist – i.e. whether they endure, perdure or exdure through time. This important connection between reductive identification and mode of persistence has been largely ignored in the literature on social ontology thus far.
