Методологические Возможности “Блумингтонской Школы”: И Перспективы Развития Современного Неоинституционализма
[The Formation of the “Bloomington School”: Methodological Opportunities and Perspectives of Contemporary New Institutionalism Development]

В статье анализируются институциональные процессы формирования научной Блумингтонской школы за последнюю четверть века, которая тесно связана с концептуальным и методологическим наследием Элинор Остром, а также работами ее коллег и учеников. Автор подчеркивает значимость неоинституциональной методологии в современной социологической мысли, в исследованиях социальных дилемм, общих ресурсов, коллективных действий и идентичности. По мнению автора, исследования Блумингтонской школы попытались предложить решение проблемы социально-экономического развития традиционных сообществ в стабильности в условиях социетальной неопределенности, используя неоинституциональную методологию. Дальнейшее методологическое развитие Блумингтонской школы автор связывает с конкретизацией определений социальных дилемм и общих ресурсов, изучением проблем как устойчивости, так и распада институтов, и их трансформации из динамического равновесия с позитивными гнездовыми экстерналиями в девиантное неравновесие. In the article the institutional processes of Bloomington school formation are analyzed. Such processes are closely connected to the conceptual and methodological heritage of Elinor Ostrom and her colleagues and students. The author underlies importance of neo-institutional methodology in the contemporary sociological thought, in studies of social dilemmas, common-pool resources, collective actions and identity. In author’s opinion, by using neo-institutional methodology, studies of the Bloomington school have tried to find a solution of the problem of stable social-economic development of traditional societies. In author’s opinion, the further development of the Bloomington school is connected with further defining social dilemmas and common-pool resources, studies of institutional stability and institutional disintegration and transformations of institutions from dynamic equilibrium with positive nested externalities to dynamic non-equilibrium.
