Concepts also help us to classify objects by recognizing that they have similar forms or similar properties.

Nurmi (political science, U. of Turku, Finland) offers a rational and formal approach to replace or at least augment the intuitive and ad-hoc creation of national, international, political, and economic institutions. Based on his lectures for advanced undergraduate students in government and the social sciences, he offers conceptual approaches and theories that throw light on how various social and political institutions can emerge as the outcome of goal-directed rational behavior. He also provides tools for evaluating existing institutions and discusses the implications for institutions in the European Union. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
