Abstract
"In an effort to frame the problem of doing institutional analysis and undertaking institutional development, I shall focus upon patterns of adaptation that contribute to human potentials for development. Increasing variety in both biological and human cultural evolution is accompanied by the development of increasing complex social orders. The critical problems are those associated with complexity. Modern 'developed' societies are those that have capabilities both for autonomous development and self-governance in systems of orders that manifest increasing complexity. After, first, exploring the human condition and its relationship to developmental potentials, I shall, second, examine the nature of institutions and their relationship to self-organizing capabilities. I shall, third, explore the task of framing modes of analysis that can be used both in institutional analysis and institutional development."
