Abstract

This paper contributes to the critique of the cognitivist bias in neo-institutionalist theory. It presents and integrates three hitherto independent lines of inquiry about values in institutions, affects in institutions and beauty in institutions, respectively. The ritualist perspective so constructed is supposed to complement the cognitive analysis of institutional life, thereby providing an explanation for the energy that drives human agency in institutions as well as the many pre-conscious, embodied perceptions and decisions on which rational human agency is based and by which it is shaped. I illustrate my argument with a case study about the emergence of the university as an institution.
