This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the significance of addressing the institutional substance of markets. It presents the underlying thesis of the chapters in this book: that the basic conceptual parameters of the new institutionalism are currently shifting towards an integrative framework that adheres to evolutionary concepts in accounting for the matter of knowledge, learning, and institutional change. The institutions of market and varieties of institutionalism, recent trends in the differentiation of institutionalist theorizing, and evolutionary reasoning on institutional change are discussed. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   institutionalism, institutional substance, evolutionary learning, conceptual parameters, integrative framework
