This philosophical and conceptual study shows how social practices (customs and traditions) are "building blocks of society." Raimo Tuomela systematically reveals how social institutions are constructed from these "building blocks." His analysis is based on the novel concept of shared "we-attitudes," which represent a weak form of collective intentionality, and he makes instructive connections to major topics and figures in philosophy and the social sciences.

Book Description:

This is the first systematic philosophical and conceptual study of the notion of a social practice. Raimo Tuomela shows how social practices (for example customs and traditions) are "building blocks of society," and he offers a clear and powerful account of the way in which social institutions are constructed from these building blocks as established, interconnected sets of social practices. His book will be of interest to a wide range of readers in philosophy of mind, philosophy of social science, psychology and sociology.

About the Author:

Raimo Tuomela is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Helsinki. His publications include The Importance of Us: A Philosophical Study of Basic Social Notions (1995), and Cooperation: A Philosophical Study (2000).
