dialectica prize 2013: social ontology
***************************************

For its essay prize 2013 (500 GBP), dialectica 
(www.philosophie.ch/dialectica)invites submission in the field of social 
ontology, especially on questions of ontological categories and existential 
dependencies, the metaphysics and ontology of economics and economic theories, 
connected issues about intentionality, agency, and responsibility, differences 
between agential and non-agential institutions, and between institutional and 
non-institutional groups. The problems related to these differences involve the 
extent and the role of intentional and causal influences in the genesis, 
continuing existence, agency and "death" of such entities, on one hand, and 
accounting for their normative forces, on the other hand.

To submit your paper, please send it in a format suitable for blind refereeing 
to philipp.blum@philosophie.ch before the end of November 2013. All submissions 
will be considered submissions to the journal.
